By moonlight

Posted on December 20, 2010


It is good to walk through fresh snow under a full moon.  The light is brilliant.  Shadows move before us, stunningly sharp.  The cloud blanket is rolled aside.  The big lake is quiet under a clear sky.  The cold goes all the way to heaven, or whatever is out there.  We can breathe, and breathe, and breathe.

Tonight will be the longest night of the year in the North Country, and it is beautiful.  If we can stay awake long enough, and if the sky remains clear, we will be able to see a complete lunar eclipse.  That should be worth staying up for. 

Happy holidays.
