My Distant Neighbour

There is nothing quite like standing in the garden, in the middle of the night, under the gaze of the silent moon. The frogs may croak, the bats squeak, the rodents shuffle through the undergrowth. The moon is a constant, my silent companion, ever watchful.

Indeed a distant, yet steady neighbor, Carrie.I see him here in Colombia too, even if bats, frogs and crickets are more intense in their demands for attention.

Very beautiful. I love moonlight, especially during a full moon.

Hi Carrie, I had to smile when Christer said he can see him too! I think he forgets that there are two Moons, how else can we all see it? Mind you there could also be three, or more, as in the song Blue Moon😂.

Sharing a Post

Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. Only club members can read posts submitted into a contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!

Gems Stories are public:  On the other hand the Gem stories are different, since there is no voting on Gems. During a Gem event, your friends and fans can come on and read without a SignIn. This is one of the great advantages of the Gem events.
