Penny and I enjoyed a beautiful morning on today’s walk.
Last night we got some much needed rain, but the storm had passed through, leaving the air feeling cool and well-washed. High in the sky was the friendly moon, darting back and forth through gaps in the scudding clouds, casting a silver sheen over the treetops and walkways and first-fallen leaves. As we strolled through the darker areas of our morning journey, I thought of the amazing amount of light that is generated by the moon’s reflection of the sunlight. On a morning like today, where the moon is full and the skies are moderately clear, the unobstructed glow of the moon alone is more than bright enough to light our path.
