Big Moon - Blue Sky

Remember a few weeks ago the media attention that focused our attention on the moon that was supposed to appear 10 percent larger because the full moon was going to occur perigee?

I looked at the moon that night. It was bright, but how does one measure an additional 10 percent of moon brightness and size? It didn't seem bigger-and in truth, it wasn't. It was the same old moon--I just took time to notice it.

Like the blue sky on Sunday.

So clear and blue that it seemed like I would get lost in it. And for a while, I did get lost in it as it enveloped me and I drifted off to sleep under its vast covering.

Did it seem bigger then? No clouds; just blue sky adding depth to the scene behind the trees and buildings.

The same sky that has always been there. I just took time to notice it.

Sometimes I just need to slow down and notice the world around me and then the things I have always accepted and seen will look new and different.
