The late fall moon always rises in the east above the hill behind the cabin. On days like today, shortly after the sun goes down, an autumn moon wastes no time before eliminating a December evening's darkness. As it rises above the eastern trees, it's so beautiful as it illuminates the hollow below. Although it was 36 degrees out, I sat on the porch enjoying the view and the shadows cast through the trees. A distant coyote in Scioto Trails breaks the silence and reminds me once again that I'm not alone.
