Tuesday, April 22, 2014 — I guess I’m just one of those wacky weirdoes who feels the effects of that old fool moon tuggin’ on me. Some folks can just sprawl out across the bed and go right to sleep with the silvery light shinning down on them, but not me. I’m a bundle of twitching, burnt nerves who tosses and turns and winds the sheets and blankets into knots for a couple of days on either side of the full moon.
I worked for years as a musician, and I can tell you the full moon brings out the crazies. I worked as a restaurant manager and that was my experience in that profession as well. Ask any law enforcement officer, and I’m sure they’ll agree with me — things get a little bit nuts around the full moon.
So despite the emails I received about the imminent rapture, the arrival of the great tribulation and the end of the world as we know it during the last week’s total lunar eclipse, I gladly grabbed a folding chair and wandered out into the back yard late last Monday night to check out the celestial light show.
