For a brief moment tonight I basked in the glow of the full moon. It turned out to be another long day that laid aside the best of plans. I got to bed late again last night, had a rushed breakfast (Kashi Instant Oatmeal so it could be worse) knowing I had a yogurt waiting for me at work, skipped my morning yoga and only went on a 15 minute walk at lunch. I ended up leaving the office late at about 8:30pm and I was headed to grocery shopping. As I approached the parking lot I looked up and was immediately captured by the beauty of the full moon shining brightly through the thin moving veil of clouds. I stopped in my tracks, bewitched and grateful as the busyness of my life fell away. I breathed the moment in deeply and slowly. Our modern lives so often keep us removed from the natural world that is so important to our well being. Tonight I connected for a moment with the greater cosmos and let it refresh me, if only for a moment.
