My friend P., the photographer, took the above photos of the full moon.! Isn’t it just gorgeous.?! Did I mention that P. went and bought a camera because of all the love and support she received from this blog for her photos.! Thank you dear readers and fellow bloggers.!! Now P. gets to do what she so dearly loves and we get more photos of beautiful Playa.!!

The photo directly above and directly below of the full moon were taken by a former colleague of mine in Playa del Carmen, Ricardo Pincilotti Ezcurra. It’s a little difficult to see even by the light of the full moon, but they are releasing turtles into the Caribbean.!! How exciting.!! And of course, the moon is amazing as usual.!! Gracias Ricardo for letting me use your photos.! And I hope you enjoy your 5 seconds of fame 😀

There was a beautiful full moon last night. The picture above is from one of my favorite beach bars in Playa del Carmen – Zenzi Beach Bar.!! I didn’t get a chance to see the full moon here in Chicago last night as it was covered by the clouds. And then I went to sleep…too tired to say “hola” to the moon 🙂

I also missed the beautiful meeting of Venus and Jupiter in the sky. Hopefully, tonight will be less cloudy and I will be able to see the conjunction. If not, the two planets will meet up again late August.! So I will have to be on the lookout then too. The picture below of the two plants converging is from June 28th, 2015 over Los Angeles. Breathtaking…

I didn’t forget about the moon last week. Here it is in all it’s lovely glory from last week.! Plus a poem from me 🙂 Enjoy…

The delirious night
murmurs to my love
sky magic
sea rose
and the language
of exotic rain

La noche delirante
murmullos a mi amor
la magia del cielo
mar subió
y el idioma
de lluvia exótico

The countdown to the end of the year has begun. It’s December. Christmas and New Year’s Eve are around the corner. Time Magazine has picked it’s Person of the Year – the Ebola Fighters. The Nobel Prize has been announced and awarded. Pretty soon, we will start to see the best photos of 2014. The top songs of 2014.

Today, I offer you the last full moon or la última luna llena of 2014 from Playa del Carmen. It’s been over a year since last I was in playa. I hope I can make it back there in 2015 for a visit. But I especially hope it’s around a full moon.! So I can once again say, “hola luna, soy Rosa”.!

la luna…la luna…la luna llena…

Last night’s full moon was beautiful.!! In playa that is; not in Chicago. Yesterday in Chicago, it was super cold and super cloudy.! No me gusta.! Therefore, I wasn’t able to see last night’s display of la luna llena or the full moon.

But luckily for me, I had some hot chocolate to go with the cold and that made it a little better 🙂 Along with Zenzi Beach’s photo of the full moon in Playa del Carmen last night.!! For a moment or two, I was able to forget about the cold and remember warm beach nights made for sky gazing.!! One day soon, la luna…you and I will be closer….te prometo.
