"This is the violet hour, the hour of hush and wonder, when the affectations glow and valor is reborn, when the shadows deepen along the edge of the forest and we believe that, if we watch carefully, at any moment we may see the unicorn."

Animal Wednesday - It's a Stretch but....

After many, many, MANY Months of cold and fog.....Summer did arrive in the City by the Bay two days ago.... yesterday, it was 98! I was loving it.... our brief glimpse of Summer came at the perfect time to see the beautiful August Full Moon....rising and setting...

I took this photo yesterday morning, as the Silver Moon was about to sink into the Pacific Ocean....just as I was shooting, I heard "Caw! Caw!... And, five Ravens flew right over me.....in a great hurry as if they wanted to watch the Moon disappear too. You will have to try and enlarge this...but the five little black "blips" (to the right of the Moon) are the Ravens winging their way West...

I have also included La Luna rising in the East two nights ago..

And....a sunset at the same time...from the opposite end of my roof....

Beautiful and inspirational to me. When you haven't seen Moon nor Sun in a long time....these few days have been a help to my poor soul.
CAW! CAW! Oops, I meant - HAW! HAW!

  1. okay, I don't see the blips but I know you saw those ravens!!!

    I'm thrilled that you finally have the sun, moon and stars. I think the reason you don't see them more often is that your light shines brighter than theirs ;)


  2. Im so glad you can see the sky and feel the warm sun. these photos are beautiful. thank you hugs, suki

  3. Very clever play on words - love it. Your pictures are just gorgeous!!

  4. Beautiful photos! Like Lo, I can't really see the ravens, but I believe you! Glad you are have warmth and moon and sun sightings! xoxo

  5. I am so happy for you!!!!
    Yesterday when I flew back from Bali to Singapore I saw a gorgeous moon in the cockpit and thought about you. I made a picture with my phone but it turned out one black picture with a tiny white spot........not at all what I saw........ But it was gorgeous believe me and I thought about you there


  6. i CAN see the ravens. one is carrying a plaid purse, one has four painted orange feathers, and one looks confused but content.

    i am glad for you. i am super glad for you. i am amazingly glad for you.

    plus, i love you.


  7. yipppeeeeyippeeeee woof woof and hooray and mew mew and neigh neigh and all other animal sounds to celebrate...

  8. I have potted plants in my south-facing bedroom window, and I rarely get up before 10:00 a. m., so I leave the shades open each night. When the moon is full--or even large--I can't help but notice it and admire its beauty.

    By the way, I answered your comment of this morning on my blog.
