Yes folks, it was a very full moon. I have several decent shots of it, yet this one shows the most detail. No fancy tricks with the photo editor here. What you see is what I saw, when I snapped the photo.
Pleased to have my camera back, I wandered through the neighbourhood, as the moon rose, in my overcoat and slippers. I sometimes wonder, and wonder if others do too! Hey, whatever it takes, right?

My path continues, each day presenting new challenges, as well as unexpected gifts. Today was a day on fast forward. As soon as the chain of events was set in motion , no chance remained of turning back. I went with the flow, consequently, nearly running out of time for all that needed to be done.

I finally got my camera back … oh, yes … minus the rechargeable batteries, of course. Talk about aggravating. Now what? My word against theirs, I suppose. Seems like it was gone forever.

“Five bucks,” he waved it in the air. After taking a few more steps, his hand still in motion, stopping for a second, “It’s not yours is it?” As he continued on his way, I was left feeling in my pockets wondering where my change from purchasing the book had gone.
Mouth open, momentarily remorseful for not having spoken up in time, I watched him disappear down the sidewalk. For him to be so inflated about finding it, he must have really needed it. So in my mind I wished him well … five bucks … five bucks … five bucks … my own form of tithing. Every day a new experience!
