“There are for starters, grandeur and silence, pure water and clean air. There is also the gift of distance… the chance to stand away from relationships and daily ritual… and the gift of energy. Wilderness infuses us with its own special brand of energy. I remember lying by the Snake River in Idaho once and becoming aware I could not sleep… nature’s forces had me in hand. I was engulfed by a dance of ions and atoms. My body was responding to the pervasive pull of the moon.”

This is day 10 of a 14-day photo challenge. Somehow, I got the date mixed up and the full moon (a rare blue moon) is actually tomorrow, July 31. Oops, oh well. So that means another walk outside on a hot, summer night and an extra photo of the moon. I think I’ll add some gelato to that walk. Read more about this challenge here.
