[life] full moon  
Happy hunter moon.

On the way home from school, the full moon was already above the treetops. The sunlight wasn't fully gone, but the sun itself was beyond the horizon. The sky was a faded blue, and the clouds tinted a light purple. They slipped around the moon like smoke during a fire dance.

The main road I use to get to and from school has a section which is absolutely filled with trees and bushes that have, suddenly, turned red. So many trees had gone straight to brown I didn't think we'd get any color, but reds were spilled on either side of the street. Some of the reds were bright, shiny, and others deep, thick, edged in black.

I drove with both windows down and the air was cool and sweet.


I am restless tonight. I want to run through the darkness and dance under the stars and clean my house and rebuild my car and write for days and light candles and pour gas on bonfires and spin through the smoke and the night and the magic of the full moon.

This is why bipolar and fictional lycanthropy go together so well. The beast unfurls within my flesh and I would peel away my skin and bones.

The sun and moon were both out when I was driving to work this morning. It was so pretty. But one thing I dislike about Florida is that we don't really have seasons. I appreciate the changing leaves so much when I visit somewhere that has them.

Right now, as the weather gets incredible cold, I think I would love to live somewhere without seasons, as long as the only season it had was warm. But I know what you mean; I would miss the changing leaves if I didn't have them, and the rush of an actual autumn. The air is just charged with energy this time of year.

I saw the hunter's moon last night as I drove home, too, and it was magnificent.

Fall can be so awesome. :)

I'm glad someone else was able to experience and appreciate it.
