Psalms of My Soul
Sephirat HaOmer day 31
Baruch Hashem for the glory that is the gift to us in the very visible full moon. My iPhoto library has a zillion shots of moons, hmm, or is that a cheese ball?

Beauty and Harmony in Humility, Awe and Splendor
- Joy Krauthammer
In my hillside home, sitting at my computer, a light catches my eye and I glance toward the right. Through the kitchen window, wonderfully surprised, clearly I see the large, full bright orange moon. I am in awe of its beauty and balance as it hangs alone in the sky. I look over my shoulder, and my heart feels full as I gaze upon the moon, like a magnet, and my fingers continue to type. Even as I watch it, the orange moon is quickly rising, and turning a brighter lighter shade.
How many photos can I shoot of this round orange object in the night sky that shows up on all my film as a round shape in the dark sky?
Almost 20 years ago a friend married another friend. Purposefully for a shidduch / marriage, I had introduced them. I took a photo of the newly weds kissing at night following the afternoon wedding (where I was honorary Chuppah holder). Consciously I moved my body low so that the full moon would be visible closely over their heads.
Years later I saw the framed photo on their bedroom dresser and commented on it. My friend questioned me, "But what is that circle over our heads?" I laughed when I recalled how I had adjusted my body low to catch that very high moving scene. I admired my artistry.
Tonight, once again, I must bend my body low to continue to see the Splendor through the window, as I type with the rising moon, and I am in awe, in Hod.
Super Full Moon
