The Moon before Yule, the second lunar eclipse of the year, obscured by snow flurries. Tomorrow morning I will look for the eclipse, even though it is unlikely I will see it.
To stand out under a winter sky and gaze up into the vast overhang of dark dotted with stars, the landscape lighted not only by the glowing full moon, but it's reflection off the freshly fallen snow, surrounded by stillness, your own heartbeat and breathing are the only sound. Moments so still that time becomes irrelevant, and the imagination soars, until in the distance an owl calls for a mate, or a train whistle sounds, and the chill creeps through the soles of your shoes, and again you are standing there under the stars and the first full moon of winter.
