Old Man of the Mountain

Spring                                                                              Mountain (New) Moon Today the new shoulder moon sets. Since I name the moons each month, either using a traditional name or one I’ve created, I sometimes use them to remind me of something over the course of the month. Without melancholy this time I’ve come to an additional revelation, a sudden insight into […]

Gonna Miss Her

Spring                                                                        New Shoulder Moon SeoAh goes home today. Murdoch misses her and Joe needs her. Her flight is at 11:45, so we’ll leave around 8:30 or so. After I get her checked in, I’ll turn around and drive back past Conifer and on to Littleton to Hearing Aid Associates. My hearing aid no longer takes […]

Memories

Spring                                                                     New Shoulder Moon The new shoulder continues its impact on our lives. SeoAh’s here and cooking suppers, cleaning, chatting.

Yesterday and Today

Spring                                                                  New Shoulder Moon Made it to three sets on my workout. This is slow for me since I’ve had this routine for over six weeks, the time frame in which I usually go back for new exercises. No matter. Things have been busy. Feels good to be have gotten this far given the situation. […]

SeoAh Day

Spring                                                                   New Shoulder Moon Yesterday was a SeoAh day. After breakfast we went to the King Sooper and picked up food for Thai/Korean Chicken Soup and a shrimp/rice noodles dish. SeoAh knows exactly what she wants, picking among the produce items carefully, smelling the spring onions and the leek. On the leek, “I can use […]

Liberated and Vital

Spring                                                                        New Shoulder Moon The full new shoulder moon hangs over Black Mountain right now. It’s the middle of Nisan in the Jewish lunar calendar, the first month of the year. Passover is a spring festival, not unlike the ones in Asia that we tend to call Chinese and Korean New Year. It’s especially similar […]

Great Wheel go bragh!

Imbolc                                                                 New Shoulder Moon Made corned beef and cabbage for dinner last night. Erin go bragh! When I decided to write novels, now long ago, Kate suggested I find an area that I could relate to. I chose my Celtic heritage, both Welsh and Irish. It is a fertile realm, filled with gods and goddesses, […]

Moving Forward, Cloud Dissipating

Imbolc                                                                             New Life Moon Under the New Life moon a new life has emerged, related to the old one, but different nonetheless.
