a magical moment...

Woke up 5:45 this morning to a bright, big, smiling moon starring at me outside my window, (wish I could capture the image better...) my whole bedroom was illuminated as if it was the stage under a spotlight waiting for the star to arrive. Needless to say, I got up and reached for my camera, only to find a full CF card flashing in the dark at my face, sat there and went through some old pictures and deleted a few.... I just had to get a shot of that image. I feel however that perhaps it's time for a new camera... my Canon 10D has been a loyal companion for quite a few years and has had it's share of falls and scratches but, seems to buckle under pressure lately...

after I took the shot of the moon, I went straight to the living room as I new the sun would be coming up soon, and I know this has happened on many occasions where the moon is up high and the sun is peaking out, but it felt like a magical moment for me, and I wanted to capture it not only in my mind but on "film" as well... So, I waited, and waited... for the first glimpse of the sun from behind the tall trees in my view... sitting wrapped in a blanket, out on the balcony... waiting... and waiting. So I took a shot anyways, as I realized that I really wanted to go back to bed and didn't think I could wait any longer, and I'm glad I did... because I fell asleep, sitting out there (must have been the fresh air), and awoke only when the sun was pretty high up and didn't have the same effect for a picture.... But still a magical moment...(thanks Gag).

Wanted to share with you all...


  1. The images you painted with your words make this little magical experience all the more beautiful. I truly believe someone was smiling at you and maybe that caress of fresh air was a winged angel letting you know it was OK to sleep, he was watching.

    Peace and mahalo

  2. I was just out in the moonlight, turning off the sprinkler. It was so gorgeous, wanted to run in and wake Husband to see too. But didn't-he needs rest. I'm so glad for you that you can still feel magic. That in this time of transition, your heart is open. Thank you for sharing your magic with us.

  3. What a beautiful light, you were drawn to. Yes indeed, thanks to Gag. : )

  4. See. The light of love...the light of God...the light of Gag...

    NEVER goes out.

    Not even when we fall asleep.

  5. Ah yes, a magical moment sent from above for you. How lovely...xx

  6. Hi Marinik! Thank you for sharing this. I felt so wonderful after staying here in your blog, full of love and soul. The words you've written are hauntingly beautiful and so much real. You're lucky to have found your great love, and I'm sure he's now at peace and in a better place. Do take care.

  7. thank you for visiting my blog. I didn't expect you to anyway as you have more important things to than reading about Ireland and about how to clean sticky tiles!!!!! but coming back to your blog (our line is always extremely slow between the 1st and 15th of a month - satellite-internet - so I can't browse to much) I was amazed to see the same moon I took a photograph about the same night... isn't it wonderful to have similar ideas not knowing each other and living "on different planets"? that's what I love about the internet most. and I hope for a more reliable connection one day... I hope you are getting better each day. Eliane
