I see the moon?

H20 splatters..
Bare feet flex on cool wet deck

Clouds shimmer in pink

Clouds covered the sky during the night of the lunar eclipse. Although, I had gone to bed, I woke. Rain was splattering against the windowpanes. The cat who had accidentally been left outside was meowing.
Reluctantly, I rose and padded through the living room and an ailing slumbering spouse on the couch. Upon opening the back deck door, the cat whooshed in with an indignant meow. The dog scampered past me while I stood there astonished by the hazy light of the night. Despite the cool rain, I stepped outside in my robe and bare feet. To the north the sky shimmered in a translucent pink. Rushing back inside I grabbed my cell phone. I could not resist taking a photo.
I'm wondering, did anybody actually see the Blood Moon?

March 7 in the Southeast

March 7

  While washing dishes, a tufted titmouse came visiting.
She eyed me. She eyed the morsels on the window then ate a few.
Turning her back to me, she readied
and flew off.
Oder auf gut Deutsch.. Sie hat die Flatter gemacht.

And, yes, that is snow you see out the window.
This is what it looked like earlier in the morning..

And so it's almost Aschermittwoch/Ash Wednesday. The Lenten season looms. I think I will cut back on the amount of time I spend on the computer and increase the amount of time I walk or spend at the gym. I have a leg that still needs strengthening.

Winter is almost over..



I want to hike these here hills.

Music on a Friday evening ...

Here is a bit of music for a Friday evening.  This is an original composition by my 16 year old son which was performed by three very talented 11th graders just this past weekend.  I hope you enjoy.
