Fat Moon and Loyal

A L O H A From Honolulu!

The moon is a loyal companion.
It never leaves. It’s always there,
watching, steadfast, knowing us
in our light and dark moments,
changing forever just as we do.
Every day it’s a different
version of itself. Sometimes
weak and wan, sometimes
strong and full of light.
The moon understands
what it means to be human.
Uncertain. Alone.
Cratered by imperfections.
Tahereh Mafi 

The moon is fat and the 

night air is so pure 

it seems edible.

Roberto Bolaño

In a forest of a hundred thousand trees, no two leaves are alike. And no two journeys along
the same path are alike. Paulo Coelho

Every positive thought is a silent prayer which will change your life. Bryant McGill


Cheers To You
With Love!

Love the mural and your lunar shots are stellar.

The full moon after the lunar new year is the lantern festival. Happy Lantern Festival to you and Pixie. The dove is supervising the man taking a picture to be sure he doesn't mess it up. Pixie is radiating love and moonbeams for the festival.

You wonder what the dove is thinking.

I love those moon photos. I remember as a little girl thinking people lived on the moon. Now we have been on the moon – fantastic in a way.

I had to laugh at the dove standing there with a "What the heck are you doing?" stance.

Beautiful photo of the full moon. Love the photo of the photographer with the dove nearby, and the colourful mural. Thanks for participating in Monday Murals Cloudia.

Beautiful photos. Thanks for sharing!

Those full moon shots are incredible. Just in time for the Lantern Festival, too.

I fell in love with that mural. It is stunning and very, very colorful. Of course, Pixie is always the loveliest of the photos.

OK, Cloudia. I admit it took me a minute to recognize the drink reference this week. Yes, I am a bit dense at times because I am not a martini drinker. When I finally got it, it was FABULOUS. Thanks for sharing your moon shots, the photographer, the mural, Pixie, and the martini sculpture with us for T this Tuesday.

I love these urban moon photos! Happy T Tuesday

CJ Kennedy said...

Awesome photos. My favorite is the one with the photographer and the dove. I wonder if they are discussing the perfect light or shutter speed. As always, Pixie is beautiful. Happy T Day

The first photo and quote just made me sigh and then I had to smile- the photographer and the dove and the thought of eating the moon(imagine if it really was made of cheese) Belated Happy T Day, Chrisx
