Moonskin and a Blue Monster

Dear Friends,
The saturday night moon… Something about soft blue¬†light bathing parts of vulnerable¬†skin, the¬†bedroom window allows to be touched. So peaceful this¬†moonlight. Smiling, forgetting my head sinking into the mattress because that old pillow has seen better days. Like a child¬†–¬†I was – in that satin light. Our¬†dachshund curled¬†under the comforter;¬†a tunneler¬†by trade. Shouldn’t he be howling or something?

A few months ago, the big¬†son was perusing¬†my high school yearbook. He found my senior picture, looked a few moments¬†then said, “Mom, you looked pretty.” I smiled. He made me feel young like that satin moonlight, if only for a moment.

bluebellIf you should meet him please don’t worry, he¬†harbors a¬†sweet disposition, but just to be safe, I’d let him be…unless the moon is extra bright…
