Thanks for sharing the piece about the moon, Erik. I noticed it rising as I was driving home this evening, big and pale orange. This time of year, it seems to rise from Lake Casitas, reminding me of happy times fishing there with my Dad and our dogs. Anyway, it was the harvest moon, alright. I checked the Navy's moon phase calendar, and it was full a little under two hours ago.
This is my favorite time of year, the days growing shorter, more contemplative, but not yet the crisp, bluewhite elegy of winter.
