For some, it is a time to pause, reflect, to enjoy the aspects of the season, family and many other things. I’ve also been looking at the moon this week. The sky has been clear for a change and the evenings have a touch of cool. There are insect sounds still, so it’s pleasant to be out.
Maybe on a designated night this weekend, I should do a more purposeful 月見・tsuki mi・moon-viewing. That is to say, sit outdoors and really gaze at the sky (and the moon) and then munch on goodies moon shaped – something like that.
The image – it’s a furoshiki, something I made to celebrate the Year of the Rabbit (in shibori & hand dyed in indigo). Those images, though are quite universal in a particular culture. For me, it’s a favorite.
