With the waxing moon in this week’s night sky, one can always look up and bask beneath the spell of the moon!

One always treasures memories of watching late-night eclipses. This memorable one was shared with friends Hank and Marie Groff at their home in Costa Rica. Enjoy that post HERE.

Staying up late to enjoy and eclipse is always worth the loss of sleep!

One of my favorite Georgia O’Keefe images is The Lawrence Tree. I often think of that image when I gape up at lovely trees!

Many times I am mysteriously prompted to pause and look up.   Of course I’m rewarded with what I discover!

How can we not love moments when Mother Nature smiles back at us?

Who wouldn't be enchanted by a precious monkey like this?  I was looking up, and it was looking down!

Hey There!

If one looks up with an open heart, Mother Nature is often smiling at us!

Many of you might remember the Let’s Be Wild challenge of “Look Up” from earlier this year.  I always enjoy that ‘look-up’ experience when I see the flowers hanging overhead like the opening image for that POST.

The internet is struggling at a snail’s pace, and hopefully this post finds its way out of preview mode!   Have a great day and a great weekend, everyone!

Thanks, WordPress, for a great challenge!
