Long night moon.


And in December

the Long Night Moon waits

                                             and waits

                                                       and waits

                                                                  for morning.

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.
