Saturday evening, T and I went into town for shopping, dinner and to see a play called Marrying Walt, by James Walt, at the Blue Ridge Community Theater. It was a lovely day and the place is looking better for William’s first camp-out birthday party later this month.

Terr left Sunday afternoon to go back to Atlanta so he could rest and also review his cases for the following week. I stayed to enjoy a few more hours of mountain air and to clean up the cabin.
Sunday night I turned out my bedside lamp somewhere around 1:00 a.m... After my eyes adjusted I realized the night was illuminated by a wonderful full moon! Well, I couldn't stand it, it would be another month before I would get to see it again and then I might not be here, where the moonlight dances off the creek and lights up the tin roof of the cabin. I jumped out of bed, threw on my jeans, grabbed a headlamp and my camera and headed outside into the moonlight. For one hour my eyes took in the beauty of the mountain night…
My only regret was that I wasn’t familiar enough with my new camera to take better pictures, but I still wanted you to see and I still want to remember. Mimi

"We all have moments when we feel better than ever before, and we say, 'I feel fit for anything; if only I could always be like this!' We are not meant to be. Those moments are moments of insight which we have to live up to even when we do not feel like it. Many of us are no good for the everyday world when we are not on the mountaintop. Yet we must bring our everyday life up to the standard revealed to us on the mountaintop when we were there. Never allow a feeling that was awakened in you on the mountaintop to evaporate.
