Far from the Madding Crowd

Moon through the window

Moon outside


At home by the fire, whenever I look up, there you will be. And whenever you look up, there I shall be. 

--Gabriel Oak

Far From the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy


  1. You know what? I often look up at the moon and wonder if anyone in my world of bloggers is looking at the same moon. I did that tonight as I left the Palliative ward. It makes me happy that you were looking at the same moon tonight. Makes the world a little less scary for me.

  2. First of all, happy birthday! And secondly, I'm a big moon fan. Love those pictures and the quote. I've never read the book, though. Thanks.

    Greetings from London.

  3. I need to read that book as soon as I finish The Sociopath Next Door :)

  4. I always think of the fact that we are all looking up at the same moon. Yes, Birdie, it is comforting. That eternal rock, shining above us.

  5. Wow -- you took those photos? Stunning.

    For some reason, when I look at the moon, I always think of my dad who died 2 years ago. I feel like he's trying to show me that beauty still exists.

    Since when was it your birthday???

    Happy birthday? Did you do something special? xo

  6. Beautiful quote (and post) from one of my favorite books.
