basking in moonlight

I woke up at 5 a.m. to go to the grocery store for three reasons.  One, no one in this area is crazy enough to go to the grocery store at 5 a.m.  It’s quiet.  Two, I don’t like going late at night because it seems everyone who can’t go at a better time goes late at night and the lines stretch into the aisles.  Finally, I had to get groceries.  What else was I going to do?

I managed to get dressed without falling over (or back into the bed) and headed out the door.  The moment I stepped outside, I stopped.  The brilliant moonlight woke me up.

For a moment, I stood on our porch and looked at the low-hanging full moon in the western sky.  Unlike earlier that night, I could see everything clearly, and the first thought that popped into my head was, “This would make for a great setting for a story.”  The faint blue-white glow it gave the world was definitely magical.  I could see fairies or vampires or werewolves moving in this light.

I couldn’t have had a better start to Good Friday.  Just thought I’d share.
