For part of this November past, the lack of sunshine that cloudy days bring and the fact that I was dealing with a cold left me feeling rather “blah.” This time of year in the mountains, one has to look for soul-nourishing beauty. Once the vibrant colors of the leaves fade and before the snow paints the mountains white, there is a lot of gray. One evening, while on a walk, I spotted an enormous gibbous moon rising above the hills. I was wishing for my camera; but once I was home, the moon was still behind the mountain. Although I had to wait until it rose and was no longer as huge, I still found the beauty on a November evening.
