shine on harvest moon~*~




i have always loved neil young's harvest moon..it just struck a chord with me, but then i like neil young anyway..when my sister lived in long beach, california years ago, her and her friend picked me up from the airport and we immediatley headed off shopping and ended up at some divey little bar called barneys beanery on santa monica blvd in hollywood, california..so we are sitting on a picnic table inside the bar by thefront window and this restored old sedan pulls up and the driver gets out and opens up the door for its occupants and out gets Mr. Neil Young and some model looking woman and they make their way into the bar and I am going OMG, do you know who that is and they did and that was my first brush with anyone famous, so of course he is in there giving a radio interview and no one is bothering him and i am just watching him, so so cool..so long story short, he signs a matchbook with the words..my my hey hey...another cool song...so tonight when you are looking up at mr harvest moon, think of me and neil young humming the words to harvest moon!~*~*~*~*~
Neil's song***
Come a little bit closerHear what I have to sayJust like children sleepinWe could dream this night away.But theres a full moon risinLets go dancin in the lightWe know where the musics playinLets go out and feel the night.Because Im still in love with youI want to see you dance againBecause Im still in love with youOn this harvest moon.When we were strangersI watched you from afarWhen we were loversI loved you with all my heart.But now its gettin lateAnd the moon is climbin highI want to celebrateSee it shinin in your eye.Because Im still in love with youI want to see you dance againBecause Im still in love with youOn this harvest moon.

I love Neil Young!! Did I put one of his songs on the Tab Lovers Unite CD? My current faves are Powderfinger and When You Dance You Can Really Love!!!! I listened to the Mr. Chesney CD on the way to work.....it might be a bit of an acquired taste...I like Neil Young better. Mr. Kenny has a great voice though...I will keep listening. I want to like it as much as you do cause you were so sweet to send it to me!!

What beautiful photo's Kim!! I have never seen a moon like that here in Australia.
It's funny last night I was out and we had a big , white full moon in our night sky.
I think it's kinda nice that we are all looking at the moon from different sides of the planet!

The moon here looks so mysterious and dark and spooky ! What a great series of pix to Shine on Harvest Moon....

Yes ! the Harvest Moon was gorgeous this weekend (Friday night) and boy did it seem to affect people !!!

Wonderful time of year, reaping our harvests, reflecting on the things we planted and created in the Spring....ready to move into our quiet regenerating time....

Shall I tease you about quoting Neil Young ?

Or will you just say "Shut it !" ?
Laughing.

Happy Autumn ! Love, S.
