Livingstone: Be Here, Be Romanced. Once Upon a Time a Lunar Rainbow...
Livingstone is a place full of surprises. Everyone you'll meet, will tell you so.
At each corner, you'll be romanced by what you see, you'll be inspired by who you meet, you'll be interested by what you talk, you'll be challenged by what you do...you usually sleep tight after a day like this.
However, those last days i wasn't sleeping very well...I had a great weekend, but since i couldn't get a good night sleep...nightmares, too hot, rolling and rolling in the bed over and over again, picking each single noise...you know the feeling I am sure.
"NO WONDER, IT IS FULL MOON!!!", a friend of mine said.
Surely, one of those grandma's beliefs you heard when you're kid. But maybe not...
For sure, there is something about The Moon. You can't ignore that the moon has fascinated people over ages. And people always thought that the moon affects how people act. Popular legend used to say that the full moon brings out the worst in people: more violence, more accidents, more aggressions. The influence of the moon and behavior has been called "The Lunar Effect" or "The Transylvania Effect." The belief that the full moon causes mental disorders and strange behavior was widespread throughout Europe in the middle ages. Even the word "lunacy" meaning "insanity" comes from the Latin word for "moon."
Some are saying that influences fertility. Many obstetricians and nurses for example will tell you that more babies are delivered on or around the full moon. Fact or coincidence?
Black magic, werewolf legendary creature, and ever heard a wolf howl at the full moon? No one really knows why, but for sure, the moon has influenced our superstitions and our fears of the night.
I can invite you to make up your mind about it.
Go to the Vic' Falls during the Full Moon, i'm sure you won't have any doubt on how mystical the connexion in between the Moon and Nature can be. You'll face one of the most special thing i've seen in my life, a lunar rainbow. That will turn your brain upside down and if you're feeling it enough in your blood, you'll find the way to scream your rage as loud as you want at Victoria Falls' Bridge by bungee jumping on Full Moon. (You can do it on wednesday March 27, meaning today, and thursday March 28, this week).
Let's be as fascinated by the moon as our elders were. ;-)
