OK. I am back in love with Washington. Last night was crystal clear, stars forever. The moon rose in the east just above the tall trees and our sad little house. One of the first things we noticed when we moved here was the night sky. We have lived so many years in areas of severe light pollution we forgot what it was like to look up and see layer after layer of heavenly bodies. The lunar eclipse was beautiful. We were able to see it very clearly because there are no city lights around to muddy up the view. My glass seems to be returning to half full.
