Moon.

I love the moon.

I love the moon, when it peeps through the clouds it always makes me smile, it seems to be watching over us as we rest at night, it is always there even when it is in the shadows.

I am one of those people who really wonder if man went to the moon and if they did, why haven’t they gone back, was it so disappointing?  what were they hoping to find? Maybe Wallace and Gromit did the best investigation .. a cheese hunt 😉

The moon has been an inspiration to many, poems, literature and films have all been associated with ‘her’, the Werewolf being one of these, changing with the moonlight since  folklore tales began and in more modern times in the Pirates of the Caribbean the moon changed the pirate into their skeleton-selves.

Back in the Victorian days the term Lunatic was very popular as a way of describing people with mental health problems that seemed to be worsened by the waxing and waning of the moon.

“She didn’t quite know what the relationship was between lunatics and the moon, but it must be a strong one, if they used a word like that to describe the insane.”
Paulo Coelho, Veronika Decides to Die

I shall come back to this at a later date,

things to do,

Have a wonderful afternoon !
