In keeping with yesterday’s post, Remember Your Essence, and that amazing beach walk in Hawaii… What else evokes romance that is quite like moonlight?
I speak not simply of love or lust, but also the quicksilver beauty of everything the Goddess touches.
She works her spell, reviving the mystery and magic of life. Just as the Sun nourishes and energizes, the Moon soothes us and sparks our dreams.
No wonder the lake prince adores her. Which does beg the question, does she love him in return, or, just herself in his mirror? “A lake is a landscape’s most beautiful and expressive feature. It is Earth’s eye; looking into which the beholder measures the depth of his own nature.” (From Walden, by Henry David Thoreau.)
And from another classic, Call of the Wild, by Jack London:
“There is an ecstasy that marks the summit of life, and beyond which life cannot rise. And such is the paradox of living, this ecstasy comes when one is most alive, and it comes as a complete forgetfulness that one is alive. This ecstasy, this forgetfulness of living, comes to the artist, caught up and out of himself in a sheet of flame; it comes to the soldier, war-mad in a stricken field and refusing quarter; and it came to Buck, leading the pack, sounding the old wolf-cry, straining after the food that was alive and that fled swiftly before him through the moonlight.”
