Moonstruck

"The night walked down the sky with the moon in her hand."
~~Frederic Lawrence Knowles


Have you looked at the moon the last couple of nights?!?!!! It's absolutely beautiful and it's huge in the night's sky. I could sit outside and look at it for hours if not for the cold temperatures. It's this kind of moon that simply captivates me. Moonstruck. There's something to that word. I often become Moonstruck when that big beautiful winter's moon rises high in the sky. I know I tend to veer a little toward the dramatic, but I swear when I see a moon like that, I hear Pavarotti singing Nessun Dorma and the entire world is a romantic stage. On nights like this I actually believe that I am watching "stars which tremble with love and hope!"

Like I say, I'm a little dramatic...so allow me that. :-) I'm going for a moonlit walk with my sweetheart, and maybe I'll sing Nessun Dorma to him.

Did you take those photographs? They're really beautiful. I like your writing style, too. =)

I bet Max is going to look even more adorable after his grooming session. Our youngest schnauzer will not let the groomers touch him, so my husband does his best to clean the little guy up. Poor baby. The other two dogs get the pro-touch, while Chester has the bowl of his head look with flat eyebrows. Haha! I hope you post photos of Max with his new plaid bow. =)

Christmas Blessings!
