More Moon Journals

Here are a couple of new moon journals I recently finished and posted in my Etsy shop. The first one is a grey suede journal with red stitching, and has a quote by Willa Cather:

"The sky was a midnight-blue, like warm, deep, blue water, and the moon seemed to lie on it like a water-lily, floating forward with an invisible current."

The second one (seen below) has a quote by Walt Whitman:
Lo! the moon ascending!
Up from the East,
the silvery round moon;
Beautiful over the house-tops,
ghastly, phantom moon;
Immense and silent moon.
The Willa Cather one has already sold, so it looks like I'm not the only Cather fan! It's been so much fun seeking out these quotes--a good excuse to revisit some favourite authors. And it's interesting to see all the different ways the moon is viewed, as representing romance, otherworldliness, insanity, beauty, and on and on.
