First Moon Jan 1, 2010

Last night was special in that it would have a ‘Blue Moon,’ the first in nearly twenty years to fall on New Year’s Eve. I knew I’d have to be satisfied in just knowing it was there. Oregon rains were in full force.

This morning the new year held a special treat for me. While my husband and guests slept, I slipped out of bed to stuff a turkey. Just before the moon set the rain clouds lifted enough to give me a peek of a glowing full moon ready to slip beneath the western horizon. The rising sun gave it an orange glow, mostly hidden by more rain clouds … a beautiful way to start my new year.

  1. This is so beautiful. I remember that moon. Very often when we have a full moon it wakes us up in the middle of the night. We think we forgot to turn off the outside lights, but realize soon enough that we are mistaken.
