trouble


many people see a full moon and think: oh no, trouble!

i'm not one of them; i love the moon more than anything else in the natural world, and tonight is the harvest moon, the best moon of all!

if aiden had not insisted we be married in a church (i insisted on october, he insisted on the venue!), i would have loooooved to get married under the harvest moon, early in the evening when it's big and low in the sky. the reception would be in a big old barn, festooned in autumn-ness and lit inside with hundreds of candles (now there is the real possibility of trouble!)

colored pencil on paper. have a great week!

Beautiful, it has been raining here constantly the past few days, not sure I would see it. I get to see it through you, so at least I didn't miss out.

I like the full moon because it lights up the night sky.

the same things look so different at night, probably because of the eerie light of the moon! nice job!
