It's Beautiful

It's beautiful, it's mysterious, it exerts a pull toward the past, it adds glamour, mystery and beauty to our night skies.

The different phases of the moon can each have their own kind of beauty. From the full soft glowing silvery light of the full moon, to the subtle little sliver of crescent hiding in the sky - when I was younger, I used to love to sit in the backseat of the car while my parents were driving at night. I would stare out the window, watching the moon. somehow, no matter how many turns we took or how fast or slow we went, there was the moon, trailing along our journey. smiling down on us.

It's funny... I used to look at the moon the same way while riding in the backseat of my family's car, and I used to love lying in the summer grass with my siblings and watching the moon and the stars. Everything seems magical by moonlight, and anything seems possible. It's so mysterious and peaceful that it makes you dream wide awake, doesn't it? When I look at the moon, I often think it's no wonder so many ancient cultures viewed it as divine, enchanted and feminine.
