Full Moon and the Coyote Song

"Go out. Go out. If you don't go out into the woods, nothing will ever happen. And your life will never begin. Go out."

When I turned the corner near my house on the way home last night, I was greeted by the full moon. Right there; hanging over the road. It was a pull I couldn't resist. I *had* to gear up and go for a ride; bad back or not.

I rode to my favorite spot on a hill overlooking the east, north and south and sat there in bliss, with my vest plugged in, overlooking everything below me, feeling like an owl on a limb. Watching and scanning the landscape below and the speckled sky above. And the moon........... It was like being 'home'. It imparted a wild but serene sense of peace inside and out.

When I found Orion's belt next to the moon, I thought of someone special and smiled. I sang "Twinkle Twinkle Big Big Star" adding my own lyrics, of course. The coyotes answered me and joined in.

Sometimes being alone imparts a solace that you can't get from anyone around you. On a full moon night, sitting on your bike on a hill, overlooking the lights below on the horizon, listening to the coyotes sing....... A respite from the life during the day; being surrounded by the cocoon of night where all the wild things are, where darkness dances with a light of it's own.

And it fills you with a wild peace.
