Full Moon Tonight

There is something special about a full moon, especially in August. In the northern hemisphere it is harvest time, for Buddhists it is Obon - a time to express appreciation for those who have gone before us - and everywhere it marks the endless cycles of life and love. Or perhaps it is just that a full moon gets our attention by reflecting the sun so brightly and we stop looking down at our earthbound workaday lives, and start looking up to the heavens and are inspired by what we see.

Here is Imai Miki singing "Moonlight Lovers"....

"Hey, boys & girls, don't be afraid, look at the sky
Can't you see the full moon? Tonight's the night"
