August 10- The Beauty of Full Moon

Dear August,

what a beautiful moon! I have been out in one of my hometown cafés’ with a friend and her children. Another friend joined us later. My friend’s daughter complained because her brother was tearing her hair. I told her: look at the moon, isn’t it wonderful? The biggest full moon of the year! Everything else seems to be of no importance.

Everything else should turn in this direction; every meaningless conversation or preoccupation should cease; the presence of a full moon and the stars at night make us realize we are on a planet that is part of a bigger system; and help us place our ideas into perspective.

In this beautiful photo, that I found in the French Express magazine, a Greek ancient temple, a human masterpiece is pictured with a tree and the full moon, representing beauty at a different scale.
