the moon

082310


When I was going through chemo I had a hard time sleeping. I spent many nights wide awake and in contemplation. Often I would step outside, even though it was winter and snow was on the ground. I would bundle up and step out, breathing the frigid, refreshing air and gaze at the moon and the stars and it seemed all my worries were momentarily gone.

  12. The moon is great to watch on those sleepless nights. I did last night. Still recovering from foot surgery and walked too much. I grabbed a blanket and sat in our adirondack chair for over an hour.
