Monday's Nature Quote



You have to be able to appreciate these things. How many people can say it was a full moon last night and appreciate it?

  1. There was a group of us. We all paused and howled.

  2. It's funny, I always think everyone is watching. I forget that not everyone is interested in the sky and spectacular moon risings.

    This quote IS a little oddly phrased--but I did like the idea behind it!

  4. I like the moon, and the stars, when I can see them, trouble is I probably won't remember the next day if it was full, half or new, only that I saw it. I really like Pleiades because one never knows how many stars will be visible in it that night.

  5. I think I do too, though I'm not exactly sure what she means. That we speak too lightly about things without fully appreciating their beauty? If so, that we do!  It takes long and deliberate attention to fully appreciate the finer aspects of just about everything.  This photo, in particular, is a thing of beauty. Thanks!

    I interpreted it to mean that many of us just forget to pay attention, and therefore miss so much...like a full moon that sails over our oblivious heads.

  7. This particular full moon pretty much shoved the curtains aside, sat on my chest, pried my eyelids open and chirruped, "Hi there.  Are you awake?" You would have needed to be inside a bunker ten feet under ground to properly ignore this moon.  Even waning gibbous,it still grabs me by the shoulders and jerks me around to admire it's bright bigness.  Such a moon for howling.

  8. I led a full moon hike the night of the Perigee moon (May 5) and had over 50 people show up for it. I was excited to see so many people interested in hiking by moonlight in the park!
