The Hare Moon

Did anyone notice the Hare Moon on Thursday night? Some years ago a friend in Scotland found a dead hare in a field. There didn't seem to be any damage to the body so he was dispatched to the freezer and I was told about him. Some time later I managed to get him sent to a taxidermist in Scotland. I wanted to have him stuffed, standing and staring at the moon and holding a mirror. The Hare has long been associated with the Moon and is a deeply magical creature. Now each year, I stand my hare in the window to watch the Hare Moon, (weather permitting), and to capture the moon's reflection in the mirror.
