Night’s Muse

I’ve always loved the moon. There’s something so hauntingly beautiful about it as it becomes the bearer of light at night.

As a child, I even wished on a full moon. I also wrote many poems about it. At some point, I used Luna, which is Spanish for moon as part of my forum name.

It’s been so long since I saw a full moon, so I consider myself lucky to chance upon this when I stepped out for dinner.

Since we had dinner by the beachfront, I was able to see tonight’s full moon up close.

Isn’t it mesmerizing to look at a full moon casting its reflection?  It almost made me wish.  At the same time, it made me remember someone and ponder about something…

Pardon my looong hiatus from this blog.  I got busy during the holidays and in between my much-needed long vacation at home, got so swamped with work.

I came up with the above photo and the accompanying quote because I was annoyed with someone who, for the nth time took solo credit for something I initiated.  It’s a good thing that over the years, we’ve become friends so I was able to talk to her about how I really felt and we were able to settle our differences before we called it a day.

Nevertheless, I’m documenting this photo to remind me that there is more to life than getting credit for the things I do.  I know myself and more importantly, God knows everything.  I don’t need anyone’s acknowledgment to know my worth, or to know what I’ve done, or to affirm anything.  I only have to do my best, and He will take care of the rest.
