Zoom. Zoom.

Samain                                                                       Thanksgiving Moon Zoom. I remember balsa wood airplanes and matchbook cars. Both earned zoom, zoom, zoom. Later, listening to the Indy 500 on the radio, as I did for years the zoom, zoom, zoom of the Offenhauser engine that dominated that track, 27 wins, was background to the sportscaster’s calling of the race. Now […]

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 […]

What’s My Sign?

Samain                                                                         Thanksgiving Moon At Bean Fosters Coffee House off Golden Ridge Road I wandered into a new phase of thought. Suitable for birthdays and holiday giving in Korea a red envelope contained money to pay my astrologer. Elisa sat in the back at a large table for four, today’s ubiquitous laptop in front of her; […]

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 […]

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 […]

Dark Though It Is

Samain                                                                      Thanksgiving Moon Extraordinary ordinary days. Yesterday. Two things in particular. SeoAh and I picked up Joe from the airport. On the way back we laughed and talked and told stories about the small things. Murdoch and Kepler’s tooth and claw moment. No blood was drawn and Murdoch learned about pack hierarchy. He rolled over. […]

Adversity and Gratitude

Samain                                                                      Healing Moon Kate’s recovery got started under the waxing healing moon. Her weight gain will, I hope, get an equal boost under the waxing Blue Moon which starts tomorrow. She’s doing so much better, still weak and often tired, she’s eating more, smiling, bustling around a bit. The trough of recovery from the bleeds […]

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 […]

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 […]
