The next full moon is 3/3/07. 1 week away.
Since I was a little girl, I have been fascinated with the moon. I do not know nearly enough about the strange celestial body but I wish I did.
I have fond memories as a child of nights spent laying in the cool, lush, green grass of Northern Michigan’s summer, listening to the humming of the nighttime creatures while staring up into the night sky, star gazing, studying the moon. Occassionally blessed with a shooting star.
It is no wonder, we on earth, are fascinated with the moon. After all, the great and mighty ocean tides are connected and in tune with the moon.
Why shouldnt humans be?
