I'm being followed by a moon shadow. And the FBI.

Last week, as I took the dog out for her final walk of the day, the full moon lit up the backyard, casting shadows all up in my grill. No, seriously, my grill is out there.

But the shadows from the moon made me think of that song by a pre-terror-watch-list Cat Stevens. You know the one: Hard Headed Woman. Or was it Peace Train?

Anyway, here's a picture of the scene with the shutter left open for thirty seconds, which I'm very proud of myself for figuring out how to do:

I almost didn't post this picture, but then I thought, "Oh, I can't keep it in. I can't keep it in. I've gotta let it out. I've got to show the world, world's got to see."

Okay, no more Cat Stevens references. Good night, wild world. I'll always remember you like child, girl.


  1. I thought I was the only one who still remembers Cat Stevens. (One of my favorite singers to this day.) Great picture!

  2. Ruth -- Thanks! And I appreciate you making the leap from the print version - great to hear from you. That cat in your profile picture looks awfully content. Anybody check its pulse lately?

  3. You should subtitle this picture "Tea for the Technical Writer Man".

  4. Anonymous -- That's a superb idea. I don't get it.

  5. I know the words to every Cat Stevens song... I used to have the 8-Track (well, my dad did). Nice post and photo - I'm just as surprised as you that you figured out how to keep that shutter open.
