This year there were three full moons that were called 'supermoon' because of their unusual closeness to earth at that time. At the supermoon of the 22nd of july this year (the last one) I went out for a short bike ride with my brother to watch it. Normally my brother is really not into watching the night sky or the moon, nor in spirituality, but he had seen the moon and it gripped him, so we went.
I had taken my camera to maybe make a nice picture. We stopped halfway to see it trough a circle of trees and there we met a bat. The bat circled around us again and again, as if it was as curious as we were. I tried to take a picture of it and BAM.. There I got it! On the photo, together with the supermoon. It was so perfect it made me insanely happy.
Lately there have been more and more moments as perfect as this one, with 'coincidences' and symbolism that perfectly fits the moment. I am losing my belief in a thing like 'coincidence'. Everything is exactly the way it should be.
My life is becoming more and more magical.. filled with surprises, but it actually feels more normal or natural. This seems to me more what life really looks like.

Bat: Symbol of rebirth, depth, dreams and intuïtion.

I love the bat picture. Once in a while I will see tiny bats darting about where I live, but I've never seen a really large bat before. They are such interesting animals!

Actually, this one looked like a smaller bat flapping around.. When I captured it on photo I was surprised about the size of it too! :)
They are definitely interesting..
