The Frosted Moon ...

Tried sleeping, but I couldn't.  Got up and saw the moon through the skylight in my bedroom.  The Enchanted Moon was blazing brightly and covered by wispy clouds.  The whole scene looked wicked cool, so I grabbed my camera and tried taking some snaps through the glass of the skylight.  Did not use a tripod and the glass distorted the image slightly ... was also a bit dirty.  So I played around with the image and smudged the clouds a bit, etc.  Not great but it looks kinda cool ... Not bad for 3:00 a.m., with no sleep?  Oh well, it was fun to play : )

See what you miss if you just blindly sleep through the night?  So there is perhaps an upside to bad dreams and "insomnia"?

Guess, I'll try to finish up my latest read now: "The Tempest".  The introduction was about 60 pages, but some of the info does seem to be useful in understanding the play itself.  Funny thing is the play is supposed to be Shakespeare's shortest work, so the play itself is dwarfed by the introduction in the book that I am reading.
So far this play reads much easier than some of Shakespeare's other works ... for me anyway.  I am looking forward to seeing the new movie that was made, in 2010, based on Shakespeare's play, also titled "The Tempest," when I am done reading the actual play.  The movie stars Helen Mirren and the trailers looked rather intriguing.  Here's the movie trailer if you happen to be interested.
