On Friday, I stayed up late after all.
Late enough to observe the Moon over the lake making the valley's lights that much brighter.
Just like I wanted.
"What are you doing on the balcony?"
"Watching the Moon."
"No, just watching."
The winds were so strong pushing the clouds so rapidly that this created an optical illusion of the Moon traveling through the sky, while at the same time remaining stationary.
I reluctantly went to get the camera.
