WENT OUT POOR


Went out late last night for a clear-sky, full-moon walk up and across the mountainside where the view feeds the reaches of the eye, with the mountainside cast in silver all around us, like the lake at our feet, that beneath the rising moon was silver washed at first in flames of rose, then golden amber and finally, as the moon came into her own on high, trailing veils of light, the lake was lit with sparkles as from a giant bowl of yellow diamonds. Came home rich.

Wow ...Such a coincidence.

Even though we are many miles away, our moon here in Atlanta, Georgia is so full and bright that it lights the corners of our front yard darkness better than the street lamp did before before it went on the fritz.

Small world.

By all accounts...you're one of the richest people I know Robert.

We have finally had a couple of days without clouds, and there is that lovely moon. I'd almost forgotten what it looks like. The stars are nice, too.

...and we are richer for having read this image of your walk.

Thank you for sharing your wealth. We benefit more than you know from your generosity.

Thank you too, folks, and for joining us on our walk.
