Moonlight and Calm

It’s a rainy, cloudy, damp day. A good day for soup or chili, or sitting on the couch reading a book. Outside there was a bit more of a chill than the past few days, but there was a new scent in the air that smelled earthy….the kind of smell you experience when digging and planting in your garden. Or, how the leaves in a forest smell on a cool, early summer day.

It made me think of nature. Of being outdoors up North.

After the hectic past week, and the crazy few days to come, it seems peaceful should be the theme for today.

So I’m posting this picture of the moon over placid waters. I took it several years ago, on the north shore of Lake Superior, near Grand Marais, Minn.*

The moonlight can be so bright at night that you can see a long ways out, even while there are stars up above.

* One of my favorites places in the world. For now, at least. I haven’t quite seen it all.
