So Beautiful

Winter                                                                             Waxing Moon Another 6 or 8 inches of snow yesterday. Snowiest January since 1993.

Lunar

Winter                                                                    Waxing Moon More snow on the way. Not too much. When I left the house for the loft this morning, I looked to the southern sky. Two bright points about 10 degrees above Eduardo and Holly’s place. Venus and Jupiter. Had I been a little earlier and the sky still dark, I could have […]

I see Christmas

Winter                                                                        Waxing Moon 8-10 inches of new, fluffy snow Monday night and yesterday. Looking out our bedroom window at night I see Christmas. Flocked trees. The full moon shining on fresh powder. A significant chill in the air. 7 degrees. With SeoAh and Murdoch gone I’m back to cooking, cleaning. Spaghetti with meatballs on Monday, […]

Winter                                                                   Waxing Moon Shhh. Don’t tell anybody or you might jinx it, but I think Kate’s starting to gain weight. She’s at 84, past the 82 pound barrier that seemed so intractable. yay. shhh. SeoAh and Murdoch are on their way today. Back to the warmer climes of Peach and Pecan country. Gonna miss her […]

Seeking the myth beyond reason

Winter                                                                             Waxing Moon A year theme. I mentioned buddy Paul Strickland’s choice: Bumping into Wonder. A few resolute type sentences* laid out some trails I want to follow in the new year, trails I’m already on, none of them new. If there’s a thread underlying them, I don’t see it. There is, however, a potential […]

The Sacred Marriage

Winter                                                                            Stent Moon On the drive over to Tony’s Market to pick up Christmas dinner I got to thinking about ohr, the shards of divine light kabbalists believe actually make up the known universe. When I bow to the divine light in you and you bow to the divine light in me, we say that […]

A Profound Week

Samain                                                                     Thanksgiving Moon Bit of winter. 9 degrees here on Shadow Mountain this morning. No snow and little snow for us in the forecast. Though. Across the divide they’re getting good snow. Our snowpack is 119% of normal and way ahead of last year. Important data for so many people. Friday and Saturday were more […]

Jewish Identity

Samain                                                                     Thanksgiving Moon Friend Bill Schmidt sent me this link.  Jewish Identity in America: Assembly Required. He asked if Adam Platt’s thoughts rang true in CBE. Here’s my response: Interesting. First, on Dec. 6th I will join all teachers in the religious school, board members, and staff for an emergency response training evening. Stimulated, as […]

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; […]

a prepper at work

Samain                                                                       Thanksgiving Moon One more turn to Tarnas before my consultation with Elisa tomorrow. He made his move toward a synthesis of   the modern mind and the Romantic–equivalent to the distinction between the self shaped by the Copernican disenchanted cosmos and the primal, ensouled (enchanted) universe that went before. His initial step came through depth […]
