Did you see Wednesday night's full moon? It was absolutely astonishing! Huge and bright and looking down on us like some kindly old grandma watching over her charges. I just could not take my eyes off it as I was walking home! It filled my heart with a light and a hope that has been largely missing since my mum passed away. It did not surprise me one bit - though Steve would think I was nuts - that, as I got to my front door, I instinctively turned round and blew that moon a great big kiss ...!
Spent two hours last night catching up on AYW admin. Had three Blue Membership certificates to print off for new members - and at least eight assignments to read and comment on. Children write the most amazing poetry you know. One little girl's piece about fireworks nearly blew my socks off; her observations of the sight, sound - and even the smell - of Guy Fawks' Night could have been written by someone at least three times her age! I guess that is why I run this group! I just love nurturing that Creative spirit.
So have you got a busy weekend coming up? Steve & I are off to Twickers for a couple of rugby games tomorrow afternoon and on Sunday - hopefully finishing our Christmas shopping ... but we'll see. I know what we are like ... or at least what Steve (shopoholic) is like!
