With greetings, and thanks to all readers. Following on from the previous post, (link below,) I took these pictures of November’s Super-moon through my window. The wind, as you can see, was shaking the bare branches of a chestnut tree, thus helping me to capture this pleasing effect. I hope you enjoy.
By the way, the twins I wrote about were Jacek and Placek from the story “The Two Who Stole the Moon.”
Well, that’s it from me for this quickie post. I wish for the wisdom, strength, and courage that comes from having natural, childlike inner peace, to touch the heart of each and every reader, in each and every moment; both now, and always.
Namaste from Amras.
And whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

Even in the darkest of times, the light of the sun’s reflection will find us if we seek celestial guidance. Having been a keen amateur astronomer since the age of seven, when my father bought me my first telescope, my interest led me to discover that today’s full moon brings that mysterious globe closer to earth than it has ever been during my lifetime, or will be again until my 81st Birthday. This fact makes it a ‘Supermoon.’
I learned, back then, a Polish fairy tale about two boys, brothers, who stole the moon one night when it was hanging over their house, like it does in my pics. Fortunately for the moon, and everything else for that matter, I chose to leave it where it was. If I remember correctly, those two boys got into a whole lot of trouble for their misdeed.
The pics, were taken in September, with today’s post in mind. I expected it to be way too cold for me to head outdoors with a camera on any night in November. I hope you enjoyed them.
With thanks to all readers, peace from Amras.
This we know:
the earth does not belong to man;
man belongs to the earth.
This we know.”
With sincere appreciation to all our readers and followers. We wish you all a very Happy Christmas, and the blessings and joys of inner peace throughout the coming year.
I’ll finish with Amanda’s Christmas message to her FB friends, which I find quite moving:
“It’s been a challenging year, indeed, maybe for all of us.
I am always into posting positive stuff and comments here.
I sincerely pray for more love, more peace between us, less war, less hate.
I am truly placing my hands together and hoping for an easier 2016 for myself and
all my family and friends, for the world.
You are my brothers and my sisters. I think dearly of all of you.
So here is wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a positive New Year year in 2016.
(Love you guys; and it’s a charged Christmas Day with a full moon. Let’s set our intentions and dreams to be fulfilled for the light of the coming new year).”
Until 2016, Namaste from Amras.
