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.

May 13- full moon and flirting

Hello May,

you were showering us with storms, brought sunshine, and changed mood every half an hour, today! Is this why I was a bit moody or should I attribute it to the full moon?

Anyway, I decided to take it easy and slow down a bit, because working and stressing the last few days made me nervous. And when I get nervous I am not effective any more. It is also bad for love. So I decided to take a break and stop putting demands on myself other than take it easy. No projects, no contact with impatient colleagues, no respect for deadlines. Nothing.

Instead, I did things normal people do on Saturdays that I have been postponing. For example, buy vacuum cleaner bags. Batteries for my clock. Go for a run.

I finally went to a local café-bar for a drink. A charming couple in their forty’s was chatting with the owners about Palermo in Sicily. The woman contributed to a publication on Palermo and was showing everybody beautiful photos. The owners wanted to visit too and started planning a trip. Everyone was excited. The couple was in love, and very demonstrative.

Is it spring, the full moon was beautiful, everybody in the café-bar got in a flirtatious mood. It is so inspiring to see people in love!

You get happy, and in this case, you want to follow their example.

I thought of B. I wish I could kiss him also in this or another café.

To contribute, in my turn, to the amount of happiness in the world.
