100 random things that make me happy: #2

I was debating what to write about next; then I looked up. 

I was standing in my backyard this evening talking on the phone to one of my coworkers about a patient and a scheduling mix-up while another coworker was texting me about the issue when I happened to glance heavenward. The waxing gibbous moon was visible in the blue, blue sky. It never fails to make me happy, and capture my imagination, when I see the moon during daylight hours. Well, to be honest I'm fond of the moon under any circumstance or in any phase. *cough~nerd~cough* There's just something about seeing the moon while the sun is shining that makes me pause and think about the fact that I'm standing on the surface of a planet, hurtling through space. It's kind of surreal and grounding at the same time. I'm not sure if that makes any sense, but I know it makes me smile.

I think the moon is such a beautiful thing to look up and see. I was driving home the other day and looked out ahead of me and there was a rainbow, that's another thing that I find that's amazing.

It is pretty amazing. Good reminder to stop and look up every now and again. :-)

Your lovely description made me smile. The moon is mysterious and yet supposedly not a mystery at all. Still. It sparks the human imagination.

I check for the moon every night on my way to work, to mark its phases and just... I don't know... *look at it* for a while. :)
