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 […]

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 […]

Come Home

Samain                                                                    Thanksgiving Moon I’m at Dino’s on far west Colfax, near Kipling. This is an Italian place that my friend Alan Rubin used to visit when he grew up on west Colfax, further east, into Denver. The old orthodox neighborhood. Much like, I guess, the northside of Minneapolis at about the same time. His dad […]

Merging Strengths

Samain                                                                      Healing Moon Friend Mark Odegard sent this to me, something he found in an old journal from his hippy days traveling the earth, searching, finding, losing. In the way of art, even to its creators, he saw something new when he came upon it this time: “Yesterday I saw in the drawing you and […]

Grrrr

Samain                                                                     Healing Moon When it snows, it blizzards. Gabe’s in the hospital, surgery this morning. Appendix out. (late breaking news. Surgery stalled to be sure appendix is the issue.) Come on stars, planets, fate, random chance, whatever the f&*! has descended on this family. I mean, aaarrrgghhh. I’ll see Gabe later today at University Children’s […]

I Know

Fall (last day)                                                                 Healing Moon The weather gods have chosen an apt offering for the last day of fall, 8 inches of snow. In true Colorado fashion it will probably be here tonight and tomorrow, gone by Thursday if not late Wednesday. Looking forward to it. A difference between Colorado and Minnesota exists in forecasting […]

Incognitum

Fall                                                                     Healing Moon Another of life’s inflection points. I want to consider it, honor it, respond to it, but I’m having a hard time. Just too tired. And, I feel guilty about that. Like somehow I should be able to just power my way through and get back to the usual. Which is unrealistic. Certainly […]

Stop the Squirrel Cage

Fall                                                                     Healing Moon Went to mussar yesterday for the first time in three weeks. Lots of hugs. Lots of obvious caring for Kate.  One of the ironies of this whole situation is that three weeks ago yesterday Kate and I co-taught a mussar session on compassion, rachamim. The next morning at 6 a.m. she was […]
