Musings From A Musical Mind

Harvest Moon

A harvest moon

Last night was a very rare ‘harvest moon’ – which only appears once in several years – a full moon on the first day of fall.

We noticed coming home from dessert last night in downtown Renton – that the clouds seemed brighter – and then we saw – it was the full moon peeking out from beneath the clouds.  It was beautiful – and we marveled at the rare event that we were witnessing. Most of the Northwest missed this event due to the clouds – and we felt lucky to get a glimpse of it!

I feel that with each passing season – there are wonders and things that are around us that we need to pay attention to – and really see. We get so busy with our lives – our worries and stresses and everyday schedules – we simply forget to look around us.

There’s something magical about the moon.  Always breathtaking and mysterious – a blob of light in the sky – round and constant – sometimes hidden – sometimes fully seen – but always there.

I want to enjoy this season – the smells and wonders of fall.  The pumpkin spice lattes – the spicy candles in my home – the fireplace lit up with crackling wood – giving warmth and character to the room – and the chill in the air reminding me of other fall seasons – and that pumpkins and Halloween – will  soon be here.  I love watching the leaves turn – it’s my favorite part of fall.

Welcome Harvest Moon.  Come back again soon.

Below is a video of the beautiful song and pictures ‘When the last leaf falls’ by David Lanz.  It will warm your heart and help you usher in the new ‘season’ of beauty.

God Bless

  1. I have always loved the moon. Something about it is just. . . well, it’s mysterious (whether men have walked there or not!). I love the fall, too. I was born in the fall. It’s my favorite season. These days, though, it seems like we don’t get to see the leaves turn. . . you blink and you miss it. So sad. And it’s fall now, right? It was 95 degrees here yesterday. Somethin’ ain’t right!

    Thanks for the gorgeous pic, Cindy! Beautiful video, too.

  2. We go walking every morning just at sunrise. The moon was almost full yesterday but this morning we noticed it was full.

  3. The picture is gorgeous. great post. thanks for sharing.
