Today JD Salinger died.

I am trying to not overly connect all these dots events of recent days, but sometimes I just can’t help myself.

I had a couple of really good shots of tonight’s moon taken using a tripod, but I chose this hand held one instead because it had Mars. And the fog against which I was racing to see said moon and planet.

It is good to live on an outlyig island away from the big city lights sometimes.
