When the full moon is shining

"Tell me what you feel in your room
     when the full moon is shining in upon you
     and your lamp is dying out,
     and I will tell you how old you are
     and I shall know if you are happy."
--Henri Frederic Amiel


  1. I feel at peace in that moment.

    I loved this-it just seemed to speak by itself. And it was one of those things that catches you and grabs you and you can't find a coherent reason why.

  2. There is much wisdom in these words, isn't there? Amiel was a philosopher, so I suppose that explains things. I'm so glad that you liked this, and I thank you for writing. May God bless you.
