“finish each day and be done with it.
you have done what you could.
some blunders and absurdities
no doubt crept in;
forget these as soon as you can.
tomorrow is a new day.
you shall begin it serenely
and with too high a spirit
to be encumbered
with your old nonsense”
-ralph waldo emerson
july full moon – ann arbor summer
what an incredible way to say goodbye to a year
walking across a frozen lake with special friends
while wrapped up for sub-zero temps
with twinkling snowflakes swirling down in silence
under the watchful eye of a beautiful moon
and waking up to see it all in a new light in the morning
as we welcome in the new year
“i always loved the idea that a photograph was a memory frozen in time.”
michigan from way up there
the waxing moon enabled this unique VIIRS view of the great lakes last night.
note the moon glint below lake-effect clouds over lake superior.
“a sky as pure as water bathed the stars and brought them out.”

“i’ve never seen a moon in the sky that,
if it didn’t take my breath away,
at least misplaced it for a moment.”

“harvest moon: around the pond i wander and the night is gone.”

”blooming under a cold moon, we are like fireworks…
rising, shining, and finally scattering and fading.
so until that moment comes when we vanish like fireworks…
let us sparkle brightly, always…”
