Thanksgiving

Samain                                                                          Thanksgiving Moon The waxing Thanksgiving Moon has been on daytime display. It stood directly east of us yesterday, splitting the lanes of Highway 6 going into Denver. In the clear blue, baby blue sky it looked like one of those establishing shots in a movie where there are two moons visible in the day […]

Not Getting Easier

Samain                                                                       Thanksgiving Moon Learned from Elisa, my astrologer, that the Hebrew word for dog is kelev, like the heart. Lev means heart, not in a physical sense, but as the mind or spirit. Not sure, but kelev might mean something like, a dog embodies the spirit of a human. This came up when Elisa spoke […]

I heard the news today, oh boy

Samain                                                                    Thanksgiving Moon Just posted this on Caringbridge, but I know some of you don’t read that: Post-hospitalization appt. with G.I. doc yesterday afternoon. Disappointing. Dr. Rhee shook his head, “I don’t have anything. The bleed was an independent event. Your weight loss, nausea, abdominal pain, I don’t know.” Kate’s weight has moved up and […]

Inflection Points

Samain                                                                           Thanksgiving Moon A day of ice. Dewpoint and temperature have danced together for the last 24 hours. Right now 15 degrees and dewpoint of 12. Result. Ice. My least favorite weather condition and one in which I will not drive unless I have to. The hoarfrost on the lodgepoles is beautiful and the light […]

Synthesis

Samain                                                                Thanksgiving Moon Wonder what the stars (and the planets) have to say about reading my full chart for the first time today? We could look it up. I’m going to Golden, under Table Mesa, to the Bean Fosters coffee house. Elisa, a petroleum geologist, dean of academics at a consortium of community colleges and […]

Adversity unveils gratitude

Samain                                                                           Thanksgiving Moon The Days of Our Lives conflated with General Hospital and LA Law. That’s been the last six weeks or so. Adversity unveils gratitude. I mean it. I’ve seen it. I’ve lived it. Judging an incident or situation by its summary description: Kate’s bleed and four weeks away from home, Jon’s troubles with […]

Kate

Samain                                                                      Thanksgiving Moon SeoAh left. CBE, neighbors, and Kate’s sewing friends stepped in. We have food from Marilyn and Irv, Jamie, Holly and Eduardo, and Tara. Joan and Lauri will bring dinner on Wednesday and Friday. Helps a lot, easing back to full time cooking. Helps a lot, too, feeling the caring and love of […]

Long

Samain                                                                         Thanksgiving Moon 15 degrees here on Shadow Mountain with a light, fluffy snow falling. Hard. Could be as much as 8 inches. Let it snow! First full day yesterday without SeoAh and Murdoch. SeoAh texted last night and said they’d made it back home. Kate’s feeling a little low. Her stomach has been giving […]

Life is good.

Samain                                                                       Thanksgiving Moon As the moon gains presence in the sky, waxing until November 23rd, Kate’s weight has started to increase. May it continue. Here’s some interesting information about the November full moon.* Big hugs all round. SeoAh and Joe and Murdoch left yesterday at 10 am. We’ll miss them. The house feels less energetic […]
