  • My answer would be a howling NOOOWWHHOOOO!! Cause although I would never admit it, I do believe this thing I have for a full moon, somehow has a thing for me too! I am not infatuated by it, but can stare at it for ages, not to mention when the huge orange or yellow ball makes it way over the mountain top. There is just something to this nightly light bulb that entices the spirit, somehow…

    I have some great memories around a full moon:

    My first kiss ever happened to be under a full moon.

    My first boyfriend and I spent an evening on the beach watching the full moon and then got stuck, as his wheelchair dug so deep into the loose sand I had to find 3 strong guys to get him out there.

    The first ever romantic evening I spent with hubby was watching the sun set, then the full moon rise and then the sun rise again over the sea at Camps bay, on our first “non-dancing date”.

    Hubby made it all the way up to Lions Head and made a surprise proposal to me. Just as the moon rose and lit up the entire harbour of Cape Town. He said to me (as he knew I loved hiking, but he hated it). “Just so that you know, I will climb a mountain for you!!” My heart almost exploded with love for this brave man!! ….His next words were … “please don’t ever ask me to do this again!!” He never did make it up that mountain again… - but I still love him, as he has climb other kinda mountains, that has taken much more bravery than anything physical!

    This weekend the moon was the closest to earth than it had been in ages and once again I got to see it in all it’s glory, without a single car or city light to take away any of its magnificence. The fresh, crystal clear air of autumn also helped to make it more amazing than normal. This morning, as I was leaving for work in a very thick mist, the moon was still up, and made for some stunning pics. Unfortunately my cell phone cannot do it justice, but here a few images I managed to capture.

    There's so much pollution in the air now that if it weren't for our lungs there'd be no place to put it all. - Robert Orben
