Thoughts on a puddle

P1320363When you come across a sight like this it makes you stop and think, seriously. It’s got that wow factor, don’t you think? (bless me for I have done something wrong again!) Lets face it, an almost fully eclipsing moon is going to make you stare right back at it isn’t it, and say thank you for being so alive in that moment, like freshly hot buttered toast, I mean freshly baked bread and home churned butter, you can swallow that can’t you? I couldn’t stop staring, entranced in a cliche of smallness, all life reflected back, each birth of my precious boys, that screaming joy and laughter, unbelieble creations. And how at times we suffer for our joy, one barefoot moment after another, we kid ourselves we wear shoes of leather, that the corn fields are yellow, that our moon will always shine. Be happy if you can.
