Full Moon and Another Eclipse

Last night’s moon over the trees was spectacular although this iPhone photo doesn’t really do it justice.  But what I noticed was the pale blue orbs, one larger at the top of the photo and one smaller on the left side by the trees.  I take a lot of photos with my iPhone and sometimes I find interesting additives that the Universe puts in them which I don’t.

I took a second photo immediately after taking this one and I must have moved my camera because it seems blurry.  What I find interesting is that the moon isn’t photographed, but the mystery line is.  I live out in the country with no streetlights nor lights on the houses nearby so I am not sure what the line is.  Does anyone know?

I didn’t draw the line myself and I don’t know how to photoshop.  I only know how to put a photo in canva and write my blog name on it.  Note the small light again over the tree on the left by the roofline.  It is in a similar position in the top photo as well.  Hmmmm…. Perhaps it is a star?  I didn’t notice when I took the photo, so I guess it could be.  Tonight I’ll go out again and try to recreate the photos and if I find something interesting, I will share.

Did you take photos last night of the moon?  While we had lots of citizens shooting off fireworks nearby, I only saw a few minutes of someone’s down the road from me which were pretty.  I wasn’t going to venture out to be in a crowd to watch the town fireworks this year.  Lucky for me, the neighbor’s short but pretty fireworks display was enough!

I hope you had a great Fourth of July and that you were able to celebrate with your families.  Time seems to be dragging and yet the days are speeding up on the calendar.  Is that an age thing?  Or related to the pandemic?  Are you feeling that way too?

Make sure you get outside tonight to see the full moon if you haven’t already.  I hope you don’t have a cloudy night and you can clearly see the beauty in the night sky.

Keep shining your heartlights.  We all need to keep increasing love in this world.

Shine On!

Being a Jersey Girl, the beach has always been important to me so when I saw this photo on FaceBook, I copied and pasted it here.  I wish I knew who the photographer was so I could give proper credit, but I don’t.  So thank you whomever you are!

We are in strange times here, aren’t we?  The laws (rules) keep changing so I’m never sure where we stand.  I guess that’s what the pandemic has started.  It’s made a lot uncertain in the world.  It’s brought fear, escalated emotions and a wide political divide.  But I’m not here to talk about that because that’s not what my blog is about as you know.

Instead, I want to go back in history and remember how our country was founded and the unity that breaking off from England to establish the USA resulted in a firm foundation.  I wish that unity again for all of us.  I wish we could see eachother as the same, yet different.  To be united as human citizens of our country and to celebrate what each person has to offer.  Because we all have goodness to offer and talents to share.

I’m reminded of hearing how we all bleed the same color and when we die, we all turn to the same dust.  What if we could remember that?  That yes, our skin may be different shades, our backgrounds and childhoods may vary, our socio-economic levels may not be the same, but…what is the same?  We are all humans on this planet who need the same things – food, shelter, clothing, air, water and love.

Love is what brings us together.  Love heals.  Love unites.  Love is a universal human emotion that grows when shared.  We can exponentially expand love without lessening it.  Love is essential.

I wish you love today and always.  Keep shining your heart lights dear friends!

Shine On!
