Something haunting

The Harvest Moon shines on Dam Neck, Virginia, September 2013

“There is something haunting in the light of the moon; it has all the dispassionateness of a disembodied soul, and something of its inconceivable mystery.”Joseph Conrad

The children out trick-or-treating for Halloween this year won’t enjoy the light of a full moon, but perhaps it will shine in their imaginations.  Of all the seasons, autumn is most closely associated with the full moon.  Maybe it’s because of the beauty of the Harvest Moon, or maybe it just seems a perfect backdrop for all the spooky tales we hear at this season.  Whatever the reasons, I hope you had time to enjoy the Harvest Moon in September, or the Hunter’s Moon of October 18; if not, there will be another full moon on November 17.  May the haunting beauty of moonlight enhance at least one evening for you this fall!
