And in December
the Long Night Moon waits
This is the faithful moon.
This one is your friend.
from Long Night Moon, by Cynthia Rylant
A Long Night Moon Gathering. Something we’ve been brimming with excitement about for months. An outdoor gathering complete with crisp air, twinkle lights, holiday treats, warm drinks, crackling flames, and a telescopic view of the moon. Truthfully, the moon viewing was most spectacular the night before the actual full moon. But a fun time was had by all. And this is surely a treasure of natural reflection, during the season when our skies are so often dark. And hopefully, a tradition in the making.
