“Go slowly, my lovely moon, go slowly.” ~ Khaled Hosseini
The moon has been beautiful the last couple of night. Dominating the night sky with is silver light. The other night I stayed up late talking to my daughter. We had not had bedtime chats in a while and it was lovely to catch up. When she finally left and I turned out the light I lay in bed for a bit just thinking and feeling happy and content but while I did I realised how lit up my room was and so I got out of bed and pulled back the curtains.
A soft evening breeze immediately flowed over my skin and I stood there in the light of the moon and just let myself enjoy the sensation and the sense of peace and calm I felt at life in general. Eventually I laid back on the bed, leaving the curtains wide and letting the cool air waft over my body
The moon was so bright and I loved how my skin seemed to reflect it’s light. Of course my next thought was of my camera. Could I capture how this felt, the moonlight, the quiet, the dark and the light, the sultry heat and the slight coolness of the air when it moved. Could I?
I took a lot of pictures. Some of them you can find on my Twitter 365 project (which only has 18 days to go and I will have done another whole year of pictures there) but this one I decided to post here because of all the images I took that evening this one captures the pleasure of that moment, just me and the moon and my body. My desire ignited by nothing more than laying in the moonlight touching myself just for me, because I could, because I was alive and happy and that was enough.
