I walked to the beach at the end of my street last night to watch the full moon rise out of the ocean in the eastern sky. I love it when the full moon and my beach visits coincide; I get such a sense of peace as the huge orange orb slowly rises out of the watery horizon.
Last night, I shared the beach with about 50 other souls...not moon-lovers like myself, but fireworks-seekers. It was such a juxtaposition...Face east, and observe absolute serenity. Face west and be assaulted by flashes, explosions and gasps of enthusiasm.
I prefer my introverted moon, but it was fun to share the western sky with my fellow thrill-seekers!
