far away places

Friday was the full moon and I went to Hopi Point, one of the most popular places on the rim, to squeeze in along the railings with visitors from all over the world.

I am continually amazed and delighted to hear the voices of people who have journeyed far and wide to experience this wonder of the Great Mother.

Here along this parade of railings and stone walls there are no barriers to each other in this commonality of witnessing and being together. Everyone is in a good mood and we become instant friends sharing conversation, trading places for a better look or photo op.

There is the cell phone, ipad, selfie pics and employing some person nearby to snap a pic of you and yours.

The moon comes up, we stamp our feet to stay warm and as the sun disappears, most everyone boards the shuttle bus, leaving the few who linger.  I linger too and when everyone has gone and the sky is lit only by the moon, I take an image of that silver light on the canyon.
