winter solstice

last night it was too cloudy to see the full moon; did you know that yesterday was the shortest day of the year, winter solstice – time to say goodbye to the woes of the year and look forward to the brightening of the longer days and the goodness of the future.

one year i managed to catch the full moon known as the ‘harvest moon’ – so called because it signals the time when corn, pumpkins, squash, beans and wild rice – the chief indian staples are ready for gathering.   here is the full moon on the padstow estuary – its the view from my friends’ house. its actually one of my favourite images in my book stolen glimpses.
