The moon and sun are travelers through eternity. Even the years wander on. Whether drifting through life on a boat or climbing toward old age leading a horse, each day is a journey, and the journey itself is home.
– from Oku no Hosomichi (The Narrow Road to the Deep North), Matsuo Basho – translation on Goodreads
This quotation begins Suzanne’s “On the road” post “Travelling with the moon.” As I read the post my mind starts spinning out memories and suddenly it seems that the full moon was a participant at many important moments in my life. For these brief moments I join the moon as it travels through its eternity and I journey through my mortality.
NB None of the photos are mine, unfortunately. Night photography skills continue to evade me. Thank you to more skilled photographers and Google image.
