  • Moonflowers are your favorite bloom.
  • When you see a painting of a moon-gazing hare, you whisper, “Me too.”
  • You nibble your sandwiches into crescent shapes.
  • You call glitter “stardust” instead of pixie dust.
  • You know the name of every full moon (Wolf Moon, Snow Moon, Worm Moon, Pink Moon…)
  • Sometimes you whisper the names to help yourself fall asleep.
  • The full moon’s gravity pulls at you like the tides.
  • You plan your garden by what looks good in moonlight.
  • Winter is your favorite season … the better to see the moon’s face shine through the bare branches.
  • You don’t understand why no one else is awake at four in the morning.
  • Your favorite jewelry is all moonstone.
  • You know which hills near your home are the best to watch the moon rise.
  • You recognize all the faces the moon can wear.
