Goodnight Moon

I must have read Margaret Wise Brown's "Goodnight Moon" a million times - to my children, my grandchildren, and sometimes, I must admit, I just read it to myself. Tonight when I saw this gorgeous harvest moon, I just had to try to capture at least a bit of its beauty. I thought I wouldn't get the color, but this is exactly the way it looked. I clicked away - as if I were not getting the same thing over and over. When I started back inside, without thinking , I murmered, "Goodnight, moon." That must be a deep wrinkle in my brain.

Goodnight Moon - I LOVE that little book and also read it a bazillion times! But you know what sticks in my mind when I see that big round thing in the sky? The nursery rhyme - I see the moon and the moon sees me, God bless the moon and God bless me! Isn't it funny how these things become part of us? GORGEOUS picture! As Aunt B said - looks like a book cover!
Goodnight moon,
Goodnight air,
Goodnight Bloggers Everywhere :-)
