Starry, starry night

One of your messages the other day mentioned that it was a new moon. That made me realize that in the midst of this trouble, I've lost sight of the wonders of the night. It's been a while since I've taken in the moon, or gazed at stars. Or stood under the light to see who else might visit (there's another ER story!). Now looking out the window I see yuccas about to bloom. That will get me out! Most of us are used to seeing yuccas like this, and it probably never occurs to stick your nose in. But at night these open up, and the fragrance is wonderful. That will get me and the moths out. Meanwhile, I wonder who might fly up to the light tonight, and tonight's clouds will be gone from the moon in a day.
