We have a valley behind our house in which is nestled a small guesthouse and a potting shed. We often sleep in the guesthouse, ourselves, because . . . um . . . because we can sleep better there. It’s quieter there. Simpler.
One night the moon was rising over it, behind a fantastical mist, and I attempted a few shots of it.
I was pretty sure I would make mistakes.
I have no idea how I got it, but here it is.
I discarded several attempts, due to my lack of knowledge about how to make a good picture of this sight. However, I think I did capture the essence of the beauty of the valley in one mistake:
I caught the moon in action.
All my life, I’ve thought it was just rising and shining, but here we clearly see that it actually comes and goes. I actually caught it in the very act of dropping in. Of course, it brings quiet and dreams with it, right?

thanks for the link, Katharina!
You’re totally welcome, Frizz! 🙂
What a really charming post! I enjoyed this 🙂
Bringing enjoyment to those who bring it to us: one of life’s finest pleasures! SO GLAD you enjoyed it. Not the best quality photography, but I was having fun, and caused a diversion for you, in your busy existence. Yay! 🙂 You go on the book, Dearie, and TAKE OFF THAT CAST! 😉
I just loved the idea of you sleeping in the little guest house in the valley, under the moon. Sounds like a book for YOU to write 🙂
Mmm. I am writing a book, actually, but it’s about how to endure suffering unjust treatment. (I’m an expert, which explains why I love hilarity — an escape.)
Hey, maybe I should include a chapter about escaping from time to time, to rest from the brave front and just turn off the phone.
Hey, I could offer my little guesthouse for low rent to the suffering! Hmm. Would have to fix the leak . . .
I REALLY do (as in: not joking now) REALLY do think I should include a chapter on how we should get away, when and if possible. Great idea! You have inspired an entire CHAPTER and I WILL give you credit and a link to your book! 🙂
Excellent! I’m always happy to be of service 🙂
And, of course, you must come visit my guesthouse! 🙂
Definitely include a chapter on that!! Love the concept of sleeping in the guesthouse and hearing the night settling in…how peaceful, leak and all 🙂
Hi, Kate! Yes, it is peaceful and the leak only happens during enormous downpours when the ground is already saturated, because it is in a valley. 😉
It’s even peaceful there in the mornings, when we wake up, as I wrote in the post I’ve linked in this one. It’s just a peaceful place, you’re right.
That is way cool.
So very glad you liked it! Come on down and stay in the valley! 😉
Sleeping in the guesthouse or the guest room is a good getaway for a couple, especially if there are children at home (with the proper supervision). What a treat to have such a beautiful night!
Thanks for stopping by, Ruth! I feel the same way about your ocean! 😉
You’d be welcome any time, by the way! 🙂
Yes, charming fits this one just right!
Debby! So glad you could stop by! 🙂 Thanks for this kind comment, Friend! You’d be welcome, too — in fact, wouldn’t it be fun to collect a whole group of blog friends for an overnighter! 😀
oh YES that would be so awesome!!!!!
C’mon over, Kate. Highway 82 runs about an hour south of us! You’d be so welcome, any time! 🙂
