monday mood lifter

the glow of an illuminating moon is an instant mood lifter. it can lure you in, force you to slow down, be in the moment and reflect on the day.  to top it off, it was a rare find, a little treasure, to come across the granville redmond painting of one of my favorite places located almost in my backyard - sultry mt. tam in the moonlight.

be safe in the shadow of the moon this halloween.
