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.

From “Desiderata” by Max Ehrmann.

That Mysterious Globe

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.

The Irresistible

Now, as the days grow shorter, and the trees shed their summer gear, I felt it was a good time to look back to just a few days ago, when those trees were at their most handsome. The irresistible wish to share such beauty fell upon the pics above. I hope you enjoy them.

Living as we do, in an aggressively materialistic society, we are sometimes subjected to scoffing tongues and pointed type. Many folk dedicate themselves to discouraging others from their spirituality. We all suffer for their ignorance.

As we need more light than darkness in our lives, I would ask any friendly reader, who agrees with me, to consider such folk in their payers tonight.

With that, I wish peace for every living soul. Namaste from Amras.
