Day 39-Bella Luna-Supermoon


 Everything I Need to Know I learned from a Little Golden Book, suggest that we take time to “stargaze.”  According  Maslow’s theory,  having an appreciation of nature and beauty are characteristics of one who is reaching self –actualization.  Last night, while sitting around a bonfire, I enjoyed the Supermoon, which is a full moon closest to the earth during its' orbit. At this time, the moon is 14% bigger and 30% brighter!
There has always been something romantic about the moon. This moon reminded me of the humorous unexpected  love displayed in the movie Moonstruck, which is about  how love can hit you when you least expect it.

Looking up, I also flashed back to one of my son’s favorite books, Papa Please Get the Moon for Me I had every Eric Carle book for my son but there was something about this one that we enjoyed reading over and over again. Maybe it was how the father brought joy to his daughter by retrieving  the moon but first  he had to wait until the full moon  got smaller to fetch it ,only to have it disappear. Then it slowly came back. Just like when our children leave but sometimes come back and settle in their home town.   
 Hope you get the chance enjoy the next Supermoon which is on September 9, 2014 and /or remember to take some time to stargaze.
