Last weekend -- Friday really -- there was the most bright and beautiful full moon in the sky. I was amazed really at just how big it looked. Much bigger than these photos show.
But that doesn't make them any LESS cool. I really felt like I could reach out and touch the moon -- grab it right out of the sky and put it close to my heart - I am a moon child after all AND it felt like it was that BIG and CLOSE.
As I was working on some other projects for consignment this month, you remember the little stamped and painted sculpey shapes from this Looking Back post -- right?? -- well I made some more but turned them into hearts instead of circles -- I couldn't stop thinking about that moon as I worked on those hearts. I kept thinking about how I wanted to keep it close to my heart. I kept looking to the sky for it. Every time I went outside I looked up to locate and orient myself to it.
It was bright at night -- keeping me awake a little.
But it was there during the day.
Comforting me with its existence.
Anywho -- as I was working on my hearts I found some little words in an old hymnal and glued them on to my polka dot cheese heart and Voila - I'll turn my Moon Heart into a magnet and see it everyday -- and always remember to keep that big, bright beautiful moon close to my heart. Being a moon child and all.
PS. This is not to be confused with my other moon.
Well that is all for today. Quite enough I might add. Please stay tuned for tomorrow -- I'll be sharing my TMW page and reflections on what it meant to me through out the month over on http://themonthlyword.blogspot.com/.
Feel free to join in if you want. We'd love to have you.
Oh and let me know -- did you see that HUGE moon last week?
