Did you see the huge full moon this week, it was awesome. This time of year I enjoy doing barn chores early in the morning. I like the moments as the moon is setting and the sun is rising. The birds and peepers sing and the air is just cool enough to make you want to keep moving. The moon this week has been so full, its been like having flood lights on, lighting my path. The picture does not do justice because I do not have a try pod, and don't stand still enough.
