Inspiration – Moonlight

26 Feb

Moonlight plays a part in many of my stories’ scenes. My characters might take a quiet walk as the day settles. The intimacy of the night’s shadows closing in can allow a private moment to steal a kiss, or two, or lead to much more. The dark and silvered lake water might lure them to peaceful, sensual swim. It can encourage quiet conversation. Or the night’s shifting light might be a welcome cloak to mask troubling  emotions.

What does moonlight inspire for you?

I also wanted to share this wonderful piece from The Piano Guys. I love Beethoven and cello.
