As I opened the curtains to my patio door Sunday morning (12/14/08), I was surprised by the full moon staring right back at me high in the early morning blue sky.
I quickly got my camera and began to snap pictures. What made this so exciting for me was the fact that I had been practically bed ridden for the past 3 or 4 days. I had recently injured the bursa sac on my right knee and was in a splint up to my thigh and hobbling around on crutches.
I suppose I had been down in the dumps, not so much about the injury, but because I could not get outside to tend my garden or just to sit in my garden.
The view from above cheered me right up. Got me outside in no time at all. On crutches I took these awesome photos. The moon shots were what I saw to the south of my house. The clouds were my view when I looked to the north. Vastly different skyscapes from nearly the same area on my property.
What a beautiful heavenly display. For a little while I forgot about the knee and just enjoyed the moment. It was a great way to start my Sunday.
