When the Moon Hits Your Eye Like a Big-a Pizza Pie

When the moon hits your eye
Like a big-a pizza pie
That's amore
When the world seems to shine
Like you've had too much wine
That's amore
-Dean Martin

Last night the 'super moon' lit up the Long Island Sound like a, well, a big-a pizza pie:

The view from our sun room which last night was really more of a moon room.  Make that, a super moon room. 

A super moon makes me dream of all things celestial.  And, of course, I love a good star or moon in my wardrobe.  Yves Saint Laurent dreamt of stars and moons in silk.

Margaret Wise Brown dreamt of a bunny who said Goodnight Moon

And Mother Goose dreamt of a cow who jumped over the moon

My daughter dreams of the New Moon (don't ask - and she is only 8 - should I be worried?!)

Creedence Clearwater Revival dreamt of a bad moon arising in An American Werewolf in London

Elvis dreamt of someone who whispered, "please adore me" in Blue Moon

Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golighlty dreamt of a Moon River, as a dream maker, a heart breaker, wherever you are going, I am going on your way...

Gianni Versace reached for the moon and the stars in silk chiffon and beaded embroidery

and in leather, beautifully embroidered, with a buttercup yellow silk lining with Japanese characters, Gianni Versace dreamt of the 'land of the rising sun'
