More about the Moon...

"Toad talked big about all he was going to do in the days to come,while stars grew fuller and larger all around them,and a yellow moon,appearing suddenly and silently from nowhere in particular,came to keep them company and listen to their talk..."~From Kenneth Grahame's "Wind and the Willows"~

~This is a story that I find to be quite adorable,and I hope you will forgive me,Christina Martin,for borrowing the quote that you just used on "Soul Aperture"....It is such a charming thought,to me,to think of the moon,as a quiet friend,keeping a small creature company,quietly,while he sits outside,and murmurs on about his dreams...I wanted to pair this thought with my little painting of this large,quiet,glowing moon! Hope it brings you a smile!


  1. Yes, definitely, together with your adorable comment on my blog, today! Thank you, you made me happy!
