Okay, so that might not have been the first time I had that realization, but it was the most recent. I mean, how great is that describerizing? Sounds pretty hellish to me.
And it just so happened that I had several hours as a back-seat passenger on the way to my Very Important Meeting (referenced last week). I entertained myself by figuring out how to describe the scenery.
This photo was basically all I had for a while:

Only my moon sliver was more on its left side.
The easy description here is the Cheshire Cat grin. Bright smile and all that, but it didn't feel true to my moon.
It took a while, but I decided that my moon looked much more like she was showing off her bright, glowing belly.
Then an orange glow started pushing at the dark night sky.
At first it was sleepy (like me):

But then the glow started to wake up the sky:

And you know what? The describing game is actually kind of fun.
I didn't take my own photos, but I felt like these ones did the job quite nicely. That is all for today.
(And, yes, I am ever so super entertaining on long car trips - especially crazy early in the morning.)
