Is it in Our Genes?

Last night both on the way to and from our Christmas Eve service at church, I noticed the beauty of the full moon and how it lit up the clouds around it. I longed to take a picture, but was quite frustrated that my camera could do no better than what you see here.

Later, after I got back home and was on the computer, I happened to see a post from my younger nephew on Facebook. I don't often see his posts, and it's been ages since I've talked to him. Although we both like to read, our taste in books is not really very similar. It seems sometimes like we have little in common except blood. But he had posted this:

“I'm wishing my camera was good enough to capture the beauty of the night sky tonight. The full moon illuminating the clouds surrounding her is like some magnificent painting. “

Is it in our genes, or do great minds think alike?

When such things happen ,we can only marvel at them.I do not think we can explain these things.

I agree too. My camera does no good at capturing the moon

Yes I saw the beauty of the moon also. That is extravagant. Please change your category. Your article is not about animals.

I think it was just coincidence that both of you thought that. I hope you had a good Christmas day.

It gave me this incrdible feeling of connection that did not exist before, as though we may be kindred spirits after all.

I didn't have a tripod, either, a must for taking night photos.

Thank you. I will change it now. I was in a hurry to watch the West Point holiday Special.

We were looking at the same moon and were equally sensitive to the sight. I learned that he also noticed and cared about it the way I did.

I don't think it is a coincidence. Literary talent appears to run in your family .

I think St. Francis of Assisi would smile that both you and your nephew appreciated Nature's gift of a full cold moon for Christmas.

Never thought many of us are fascinated with a beautiful moon, I want to show you mine, but I already posted it in the instagram, and one of my friends might come across this flat form and might discover that I am writing here as crowntower. Hehehe...

My family is in arts, we love to draw and love designing. But we took up different courses when we were in college... but still find time to do what we all love to do and that is art!
