The nearly full moon sets in the West illuminating Birch tree in the East. The bright white bark glows against the Star lit Eastern sky. Time passes, and Sun approaches the horizon. Birch bark glow seems to fade, but does it?
The Moon is still bright behind me. Is it seeming to dim because of the brightening background? This gets me thinking about how what I think I see is actually a manifestation of contrast; bright foreground, dark background. Small changes happen and everything can seem quite different. I wonder if there are times when I get so caught up in the way things were that I don't recognize the beauty of how things are, now?
