This is by far my favorite portrait of the moon. It is so beautiful.

Why, by the way, did you change your profile picture? I prefer the other one... hope all is well, L.

Mine too but it was even better five minutes earlier… By the time I grabbed the camera, scooted up to the attic, crawled over some boxes of junk & assumed my usual slightly precarious-dangling-out-the-window position, the clouds had started to pass over the moon. There was a point where the two just barely touched in a chaste kiss… (Well, it would have to be chaste; look how Actaeon ended up.) So amazing~ a real celestial convergence…

The profile photo… Actually, that's my old one & since I use it as my Gravatar image, I thought I should switch back. Someone also noted that in the new photo, I looked like a Freudian analyst about to lecture a patient. (In reality, I look just like a compact version of my Father, who was an electrician.)

I can hardly believe it was better. I think it's pretty perfect... it's raining here today-- thinking about ghosts and furies-- as you know.

I really did prefer the other picture too.

Have a nice weekend,L
