ON THE BACK BURNER

July 9

I saw a huge full moon this morning. I think of full moons with harvest moons and fall, crisp air,new crop apples. For some reason, I don't associate full moons with summer, heat, humidity and afternoon showers. In the back of my mind ,I know that many Jewish women celebrate the new moon . I should think about a full moon more often. Maybe I am just so looking forward to the fall and a change in the weather that when I looked up at the moon, it struck me that I don't give the months of June, July, and August 's full moons enough notice. I will look up more often. I read some time ago that there was going to be an eclipse. I don't know if we will be able to see it. Maybe we already had it and I missed it. But I remember having at least three of the kids in New York when there was a full eclipse. We had made make shift equipment, empty shoe boxes ,so we could turn our backs to it and see a shadow on the shoe box. I think that was the idea. We did see something, or we had great imaginations. I wonder if any of the three remember that.
