Tonight’s Beaver Moon.

I am so that stop to look at the moon girl – and the stars, sunrise, sunset, landscapes, seascapes, birds, animals.  All of the beauty that surrounds us in our universe and the creatures that inhabit it.

If you want to be reminded of how small we are in the larger scheme of things, look up at the sky tonight.  The moon is full, illuminating our sky.

Don’t dwell on the shorter days, because it actually gives us more time to enjoy the night under an Autumn sky.  Each change of every season brings with it something to cherish.

This month’s full moon is known as the ‘Beaver Moon’ because this is the time of year when beavers start taking shelter and planning for the winter ahead, fully prepared with their food stores.  The Almanac has tied moon names with Native American, Colonial American and European folklore for decades.

So take a moment this evening, look up at the sky and exhale all that burdens you.  If only for that brief period of time, you can be reminded that there’s much in life to appreciate, feel grateful for and enjoy.
