Concurrence of Auspicious Events

Today is Friday the 13th. It is also the full moon. And it is also my son’s birthday. They all came together one year when he was at that stage when small boys have a fascination for all things scary. He grasped the significance some time before the day, and looked forward to it with apprehension, half fearing and half hoping that he would turn into a werewolf.

However, he came through it unscathed, as can be seen in this fine portrait his sister (FirehorseMia) made of him a few years later. Birthday wishes to Aliveunwed, not here please.

As usual clouds ruined the moonset. My best effort is in extras. The moon was heading for Foggy Peak, the southern end of the Torlesse Range.
