It was a glorious full moon last night, and it rose large through the trees. I grabbed my camera to capture the orb's ascendant moments.
I posted the images on Facebook (of course), and was soon echatting about the beautiful view with a friend who is going through a painful time. I shared these thoughts with him:
The beauty of the full moon on a clear night ENCOMPASSES the world. There is joy everywhere and in everything. We have to look harder to see it in some places, but it’s those troubled spaces that give us a chance to grow our souls, so we can appreciate the moon moments even more.
And don't fear for your young, who have yet to experience their own dark nights, for they will grow into their souls in their own ways.
