La lune

As we smoked a Gauloise and sipped from our glasses filled with a drink concocted from some Scottish grain and pure water from a Scottish stream, I noticed we were illuminated by a full moon in a clear sky while we were sitting on the balcony. Lordy, it was bright. It is a full moon and very strong. I don't like being so strongly illuminated, but now I know why there are so many crazys around.

I am not superstitious  but for some odd reason, I do believe that a full moon makes people crazy.

  3. Many who work/have worked in emergency departments swear a full moon affects people's behaviour. I also believe excessively windy days drive some people crazy.

    I admired the moon as I walked home from work Friday night. It was full, huge and low on the horizon - looked really beautiful. I love moon-gazing.

    1. Wombat, it is full moon in Japan at the same time it is here. Interesting. Must study that one day.

  5. I must admit I find a full moon a little eerie also Andrew, I may have watched too many horror movies when I was younger :)

    1. Grace, I don't find it eerie, but its effect is.

  6. It's not a superstition at all! A random survey of cab drivers I've conducted over many years has a 100% agreement rate that a full moon brings out the crazies. Anecdotal evidence from many others also confirms this ... maybe I can get my doctorate or something in proving it?!?!?!

    1. Red, nurses, police, public transport workers and paramedics will all confirm the fact.
