first quarter moon

If you follow this blog, you may have noticed I have been looking skyward a lot lately – at the moon, the clouds, the heavens in general. Isn’t it wonderful how every sky is new, unique, and beautiful in its own way? The early night sky is particularly inviting. I took this photograph last week, and was amazed at the clarity of the craters along the moon’s straight edge.

I love blogging. I’m quite surprised by how much I love it. I find the opportunities for creative connections incredibly delicious. I look forward to the surprises I will find in others’ work. Each of the blogs I read shines the light of another heart onto my little spot in the world. As unique, beautiful and unpredictable as a new sky.

We may be far apart, but when we look up we see the same moon.

  2. Great photo Kirsty, like the way the moon is just slipping out (or in) tantalisingly! It seems to be true that subject matter comes in phases. Until lately my posts all had a watery theme, and I still don’t know why or what that was all about. It’s kind of comforting to know that we are all looking at the same moon – that it’s ‘our’ moon, that all our ancestors looked at it and wondered, and we’re still wondering, and will continue (we hope). The moon is like an old friend who we all know regardless of language or location.

  3. Hi Kirsty;

    Love your moon 🙂

    I read your history and the part of living 25 years in fear. I think we all feel that way sometimes, but you never really know what “it” is about, life I mean, unless you take a step into the great beyond, as you have done. Congratulations.

    You will only learn by it, and there is nothing wrong with that. The memories of going out and pursuing a dream, overcoming fear, will bring a smile to your lips because you will know deep inside, you “tried” it.

    I like your history 🙂

  4. I like what you said about blogging “creative connections incredibly delicious”. Your photo is one of my favorites of yours. It is like the sky is a delicious mottled blue paper that you tore a slit in and stuck the moon in. The trees are like cut outs leading me to that spot. Beautiful composition, Kirsty!

  5. Lots of great stuff here on your blog. I enjoyed reading and looking. All the best on your adventure.

  6. I know it’s the same moon, but here in Abu Dhabi it’s lying on its back. Honest !
    Early morning skies are lovely in the desert – everything is silent, still, anticipating a new bright day. How can we not be inspired ?
    I do like the paper cutout trees that leslie mentions.

    • Sounds wonderful Tania. I would so love to visit there one day. I have seen some amazing photography from your part of the world.
      I guess it’s the same moon from a different angle. It must look weird lying down (unless, of course, that’s what your used to)
