14th October was full moon, and what a moon it was!
Whenever I look at the full moon, I rather wish that man had never walked on its surface, for I love the magic of the moon, and its pure perfection...The moon is better off without our footprints upon it, in my opinion! (Of course, there is that other school of thought, which claims that man never did set foot upon the moon...perhaps the conspiracy theorists might be right...who knows?)
Conspiracy theories or not, the full moon here at Kulafumbi, rising majestically over the Yatta Plateau, is always a wonder to behold from our east-facing balcony. While we sat and watched this full moon, four hippos lumbered past below the house, tramping through the mud at the river's edge like an army of wellington boots...shadows in the night, but hardly silent!
