Winter Moon

Last night I did something quite out of character. Last night, I went outside, into the freezing cold. I had to, I was drawn outside, by the moon.

It was incredibly gorgeous. It was entirely mystical. I have a confession, it made me want to dance. Of course, I didn't I would never do anything that silly. Me dance around the backyard under a full, winter, moon. What kind of person do you think I am? Don't answer that.

I did however take pictures. Brent is very thankful for digital cameras. Though he keeps looking at the space left on my hard drive and shaking his head. He isn't entirely sure what I plan on doing with all of these pictures.

I ask you which ones would you delete? They are all very cool and if you look at them long enough they are eerie. If I look at them long enough I am back to the dancing under the moon mood. I have been wondering what I am going to do when I grow up. Maybe, I will become a winter moon faerie.

I can hang with all the other winter moon fairies, dancing among the clouds heavy with snow. I can draw other completely normal, non-winter, loving people outside. Where me and my other faerie friends can throw snowballs at them.

It sounds like the absolutely perfect thing for me to do. Or at least it sounds perfect as long as I am looking at these pictures. Not thinking that as I stood outside the temperatures were hanging in the low 30's.

I guess when it comes down to it, I will just keep looking at the pictures, wishing I was the type of person, who would leave the realm of mortals to dance with fairies on a cold winters night.

That is the whole point of a winter moon isn't it? To inspire our imagination. To make us dream the impossible. I bet it was a full winter moon that inspired people to try to travel to the moon to begin with.

What do you think, ready to dance?

That was so cool last night. Did you see the big ring too? You should have come around the corner, I would have danced with you. Out in the middle of the street for all to see.

However, I think the winter moon turned my child into a werewolf. She's been howling all day.

LOL!! I'm very drawn to the moon - it has drawn me outside often. I even prefer to walk my dog at night so I can look up at the moon. Your pictures are gorgeous.
