From my house to your house



I've been listening to the man in the moon the last few nights, listening very carefully, trying my best to translate what he wants to convey. I've paid so much attention to full moons, but never thought to open my psychic center to the crescent moon - until now, anyway.

One suggestion that came through loud and clear is that it's about time to do a blogger gift sweepstakes. I have been the recipient of several blogger give-a-ways. It is SO MUCH FUN to get a package in the mail with a surprise inside from an esteemed blogfellow.

So, if you would like to be included in the Man in the Moon sweepstakes, let me know. I'll put all the names in a hat on Thanksgiving and pick one at random. What am I giving away? Not sure yet. Maybe one of my pics, lovingly hand-matted of course. Maybe a book from my library, maybe something else. Are you in? Let me know.

The man in the moon is so different than Luna, the character I associate with the full moon. Last night he seemed to be whispering something specifically to Venus, who was radiant and beautiful, close by in the evening sky. It was almost as if they were cracking jokes back and forth. I don't think of Luna as playful, but the man in moon seems to be. Wow. Sadly I was unable to capture a pic of this lively conversation. I tried, but was unable to get anything except blurry streaks. Oh well. Happy Monday, y'all!!

I would have loved to be present when that conversation took place. I would have been interested in finding what Venus had to say about Mars, my ruling planet. Great post.

Greetings from London.

Oh yes yes yes. I would love to be included.

The crescent moon always reminds me of the Cheshire Cat fading until only his smile remained.

Merle Sneed said...

Beautiful photos as always!

YOur blog is gift enough for me.

The Bug said...

I'm in I'm in! I agree, it's great fun to get something in the mail from an "unknown land." Although I guess DC isn't exactly unknown to me.

Barry said...

Please put my name it. Like Merle, your blog should be enough for me, but I'm greedy.

Peaches said...

I love a man with a good sense of humor...and I would love to be included in the hat. That would be great fun.

Bee said...

Please include me in the lunar company!

Your new blog name is so appropriate, Reya. xx

I think I have already received my "prize",,

I love it when the crescent moon and the evening star share the sky. Perhaps because I lived in Morocco, it always seems so Islamic, and so beautiful.

Ronda Laveen said...

How fun! I'm in (raising hand).

There is this song I remember from Girl Scout camp way back when. I sing it to the sky when the crescent moon is up. It goes like this:

There's a wee baby moon
A lyin' on its back
With its little silvery toes in the air.
And he's all by himself in the wide blue sky
But the funny little moon doesn't care.

Count me in on your Man on the Moon adventure. I do a giveaway every month on my Scotland blog and I just love sending parcels.

Man on the moon always makes me think of the REM song. And now it's stuck in my head. Nevermind.

Angela said...

I will love to add my name, but only if you give me your address (secretly) and I can send you something, too (apart from a Porsche, any wishes from Germany?)

Tom said...

...always am entranced by a big moon floating in the sky--it seems a little bit alien, but of course it is probably just a long lost piece of our own earth... i'd love to have my name in your hat, btw

willow said...

Yes, please, please include me!! (My fingers are crossed. Toes, too.)

Rose said...

I love the new moon most of all and also that tiny crescent that appears soon after. I love the dark of the new moon when all the stars come out to play.

I would love for my name to go in the hat....

Pauline said...

Toss my name in the hat, please. Just the thought of one of your photos "lovingly matted" makes me smile.

steven said...

reya put my name in your hat - if i "win", i'll send you something. steven

Barbara said...

I'm in too! How exciting it would be to have my name picked out of your had on Thanksgiving.

Peace!

Reya Mellicker said...

You're all in. Steve? You know if you win I will not send you some big bulky thing that you don't have space for and don't want to move.

This will be fun! I do actually love sending packages to other people. Actually getting to the Post Office involves triumph over intertia, but it can be done.

Lovin' the holidays,

debra said...

I'd love to be included in your giveaway, too. Been a tough year in these parts. I could use some positive energy.

Joanna said...

Love that photo Reya. I'm on a road trip so cannot enter your giveaway but I sure do enjoy your blog.

JOY said...

Yes, yes, please toss me in your hat on Thanksgiving. If I don't get picked, well, it should be fun mingling with all those other bloggers in the dark - (did I say that?)

Barbara Martin said...

Your photos, as usual, are superb, Reya!

Within our universe all the planets and stars each have their own vibrations as do each of the living species. How wonderful you were able to tap into those vibrations, Reya. Your new journey has begun.

Chris Wolf said...

oh yes, please count me in. And I also would share something with you if I may....

Reya Mellicker said...

You're all in! This is going to be so much fun!

karen said...

How delightful! I love the moon and venus together, especially the crescent. I'm a real moon person..

If logistics of being African are not too much, do put me into your fun draw!

Reya Mellicker said...

Karen of course I'll put you in the hat! You're in!

If you please, "dew" drop my name in the hat. I thank you for sharing your eye and mind with us!
