Magical orbs -

(photo stolen from the internet - my camera is SO not that good!)
If you live in the northern hemisphere, did you see the Hunter's Moon last night? It was sailing overhead in the crisp, black, night air, as I headed to our monthly critique meeting, casting surprisingly stark shadows. There is something mystically magical about viewing the full moon every month. Maybe because it is so ephemeral.

In other news, I am still up to my eyeballs in deadlines (in the case of the photo - my husband's eyeballs. I wanted to try out the super-macro option on my camera. Wasn't impressed. This is normal macro. Several steps away. Still not great. I miss my last camera - the one that gave it's macro-loving life in Italy last spring. *sniff*)

Hopefully things will ease up next week....

Toby and I have been racking our brains for a name for his latest jewellery, a visit here and... inspiration! It's called 'The Orb Collection'

Yes, a beautiful, big moon.And for the past two nights here, particularly "watchable" as the wind sent streamers of cloud across its face and played shadow puppets with the trees.And, of course, the moon drew the tide high up into the mangroves.(Come over tomorrow;I'll have pics)
