If you didn't get my title, you need to head back to the books and read Alfred Noyes's narrative poem "The Highwayman". This particular piece has always been a favorite of mine since about fourth grade, when I was first taught it in school. I had to memorize it to present to my class and it is among the random bits of teachings I somehow still remember. So when I caught a glimpse of the moon tonight while I was putting Owlfish to bed, I caught myself starting to recite the poem to her. The words came back like it was only yesterday I was standing in front of my class, probably shuffling my big feet. But what surprised me the most was to see her just staring at me while I spoke, listening to each word. Maybe there's a future word lover in the making? I sure hope so!
Earlier tonight, during dinner, I braved the 30 degree weather and went outside to snap a few pictures with my dusty Nikon oft he full moon. It was also a chance for me to use my second Nikkor Lens (55/200 mm) that I didn't get much chance to use at the university. While I wish I had a better lens to work with full shots of the moon, I'm pretty pleased with what I got.
If you haven't been outside tonight, brave that cold and take a walk! Enjoy the moon and the night. I dare you!
