one of the first things i fell madly in love with in new mexico was how bright even the slightest sliver of a moon could be. i could take midnight walks without a flashlight, the desert was glowing blue and it was magical. the last few nights the moon has been slowing fattening up. it doesn't have the same effect here in town that it does out in eldorado where every pinion and chamisa has a long blue shadow. we're also right in the high time for the geminid meteor shower. i've seen one so far, but the lights of town drown out all but the brightest of stars. hopefully one night i'll be awake enough and not frantically painting so that i can drive out somewhere quiet and and feel the moon light.
