Moon Night



Hasn't this build up to the full moon been fantastic? It has been rising in the southeast as the sun is setting in the west. My drive home from Charlottetown on Wednesday night was awesome as I was watching moonrise and sunset at the same time. It's full moon tonight. Will it bring the wildness out? I worked for several years in a mental institution and truly didn't think that there was a difference in mood and excitability at that time but popular lore says there is. I also worked in bars and didn't see a difference. What is your experience?



Peter Mulvey has a moon song, Whole of the Moon. This is listed as being a live subway recording and is on his album, Rapture. The moon was calling Eleni Mandell too. She has Moon Glow, Lamp Low on her album Miracle of Five. Some other moon songs from the past from: Eryka Badu, Carlos Nunez, The Neville Brothers, Blossom Dearie, and Neko Case.

Lovely blogs!

So often during a full moon I find myself awake in the middle of the night, unable to fall back asleep. My oldest was born on a full moon. So I would guess there might be something going on there.

At our house the moon was brilliant orange the other night. Enchanting.

Hi Sharon. Moonlight is magic. I've been watching the moon in the middle of the night too. I must check where the moon was when my children were born.

We're going ut on the boat tonight to watch the moon rise over Rehoboth Bay. The moon is spectacular here.

Ralph: Hope it was a beautiful moonrise for you. It was cloudy here after a day of showers, which we desperately needed.

We had a problem with the running lights on the boat and ended up being unable to go. I did experiment with some moonrise pics off the pier I hope I can play with and make look good. We'll try another boat ride tonight.

Boat light repair will give Steve another job to keep him busy. You can keep cooking.
