I didn't know until a few years ago that there was such a thing as a selenophile -- someone who loves the moon, is captivated by the moon, who feels a sense of excitement as dusk settles and night takes over.

All I knew was that I loved the moon and moonlight in a way that sunworshippers seem to love their sunny days. Actually, no -- the sun lovers' relationships to sunny days seems to be more of an extrovert thing, while they fill their blue-sky days with lots of activity and feel happy doing it.

My relationship with the moon and the night fits with my introverted self, filling me with a quiet joy, yet a very intense joy. It's just me and the night and no desire to do anything but be.

I am also a "selenophile" (hope I spelled that correctly). Every night, unless the sky is clouded over, we check the phase of the moon, its position in relation to planets, etc.

Jim Reeves---a name I haven't heard for a while! I like "Moon River", Andy Williams, Breakfast at Tiffany's, I think.

I left a few really wonderful moon songs off the set list this week -- there are tons of them! Glad to bump into a fellow moon person, Susan.
