To work at another job, often at night, mostly informal.
It sounds like a great idea. There is something special about completing a task by the light reflected from the surface of the moon. It also sounds recurrent, incessant, it needs to be...limited.
We can enhance creativity as we resolve and conquer a challenge. I try this all the time with students. It really is more fun when there is a dare, like when the instructions are to only use slits on the paper to connect a paper structure. No glue, no tape, no problem.
There is nothing better for a creative boost than working with what you have, limited tools, or materials that have not been used before. We could define limits on styles, options, time frames, budgets, even moods and feelings. Another way to create a limit is to have a sense of categorization, which reminds me and takes me back to my original point:
Blogging should be categorized under moonlighting.
I’m thinking about those who don't consider it a second or main job but it really is, and they share personal ideas, crafts, kid's activities, hobbies, or thoughts and views without thinking much about how time consuming and technically demanding it can be. I’m glad you are all out there. Because of you we learn something new every single day. As for me, I have decided to set a limit on how much time I can devote to this moonlighting practice. I know a blog can be unstructured and untimely but for mine I have decided to create a limit, a pattern, a beautiful, monthly, enjoyable pattern: blogging with the moon.
Twice, a log, by the light of the silvery moon, will talk nineteen to the dozen soon, not long.
I heard so much about full-moon influence. Such common stories come from fishermen guidelines and lunar gardening enthusiasts. I will too try to keep it as a guide line/light. How can I forget, every month I will be reminded by a New or Full Moon (or both). I hope this limitation will fill this mind with motivation, inspiration, and imagination.
So sleep tight, satellite. I will see you soon, sweet old moon.
