Moon madness

Did you see the moon tonight? Big and bright and beautiful. The moon played peek-a-boo in and out of the clouds. By the time I went back for the camera, it was behind a cloud and refused to come out. My memory will remember it best anyway.

Thinking about reincarnation and past lives tonight. My jury is still out on what I believe I believe. But I do know there are people know or have known that I feel a very strong connection with, in spite of the fact that in this life we don’t fit. I don’t need to know the answer to send love out to them.

OK one more verse of “This little light of mine.”
Dance in the moonlight to the fragrance of the blooming wild roses.

Useless knowledge/google:    George Ellery Hale was the twentieth century’s most important builder of telescopes. In 1897, Hale built a 40-inch-wide telescope, the largest ever built at that time. His second telescope, with a 60-inch lens, was set up in 1917 and took 14 years to build. During that time, Hale became convinced that he suffered from “Americanitis a disorder in which the ambitions of Americans drive them insane. During the building of his lens, Hale spent time in a sanatorium, and would only discuss his plans for the telescope with a “sympathetic green elf.”
