Amber Moon

It was magical! I sat out on the patio night before last, it was a warm clear night and the sun had just gone down. The stars were starting to sparkle and then this huge amber globe started to peek over the horizon right in front of me. Wow. I was just mesmerized! I just sat there and enjoyed the moment. I love the evening when things quiet down and slow down. After a time I got up and stretched and put on some music and went back outside and did yoga in the moonlight. Turning towards the house I saw my perfect silhouette on the wall of our house. I couldn't resist dancing in the moonlight with myself. :) I ended staying out there for hours . . . sigh I just love how the night sky is that incredible colour of deep blue almost black and yet you can see the silhouettes of the trees so perfectly against it. I tried to capture that blue in my journal and created this spread to remember the magic of that night.
Today I was reading an article in Somerset Studio on Wabi-Sabi. It was so appropriate to read it just after this experience. It is Japanese for enjoying the moment, the beauty and appreciation of things not permanent or perfect. A really interesting article. Its the March/April 2006 issue if you want to read it. Especially for those type A personalities. You know who you are! LOL !!!
