Week 1: The Super Moon

snapchat-2020169082845545161It seems another two months have flown by without so much as a peep from myself on this blog. Between Hurricane Matthew (we’re okay), my trip to Virginia, Halloween, and a weekend getaway with the love of my life I’ve been at a loss for time.

Sure, I have other writing projects that take precedence. And yes, I’ve been making quite some headway on them!

But it’s all excuses. As a writer there’s no reason why I can’t find the time to post a minimum of once a week on here. It doesn’t have to be a ten page paper, or even 1,000 words. In fact, long blog posts are mostly overkill!

What I am going to do is make posting a weekly habit….and I will conquer this task with none other than photographs.

There’s no better way to express my life than through pictures – through images that I’ve captured on my weekly journeys. As I come to a close on this week I am sharing my favorite image I personally took from the Super Moon that happened on the 13th/14th.  This photo was taken on the eve of Sunday the 13th with the Super Moon on the rise.

I’ve always had a hard time capturing the moon on camera. Probably – no most definitely – because I don’t really have a great camera. I’ll admit even this photo came from just my phone. But instead of the moon being a shining, bright, white ball of light (like it is in every other image I captured) I actually see some definition. There’s a little bit of shadowing visible in the otherwise golden toned globe. And with the cotton candy sky behind it I couldn’t help but smile at the photo.

As this week comes to a close I find time to reflect on the moon and nature and all that this world has to offer. I can’t help but be grateful for what I have, and thankful that something as simple as the moon reminds me of this every time I see it.

Until we meet again –

Yours for happy writing,

Lady Jenji
