At 4:30 this morning I was awakened by the bright full moon shining in my bedroom window. This is the Full Harvest Moon being the full moon nearest the autumnal equinox.
I have always been drawn to full moons. Often I have planned vacations to include the full moon. I find it comforting to know that the same moon is shining on my home in Cambridge as well as every place else on our planet.
We say that technology has made us a global society which is so true. I am amazed at who is reading this blog and where they are. Penni, who lives in Loveland, Colorado, wrote me Tuesday about the flooding in Estes Park which I had visited a month ago. My heart goes out to her and her friends and family. I just couldn’t get over that she was reading what I had written here in Cambridge, New York!
In less than a week, this “teck nerd” (yes, I realize I misspelled tech in my first blog, so I have decided to keep that identity) has reached out into the world. I have chosen to be part of the global society.
But let’s not forget, we have always been a global society– at least from the moon’s point of view.
