The Harvest Moon

Today is the full moon sometimes called the Harvest Moon. It's a time to reap the benefits of all the hard work we've done, gathering the fruits of our labor in preparation for the colder months ahead. Autumn is my favorite season, with Winter a close second. Knitting, writing, hot cocoa, and bundling up under... Continue Reading →

Focusing on Happiness—Week Eighteen

What I'm happy about this week: new projects. That trip to my favorite yarn shop yielded the above super-cheery yarn. I plan to make myself a set of vibrant wrist warmers. Colors are said to influence people's psyches. I've found that very true for me. Yellow is supposed to stimulate the intellect and creativity, and... Continue Reading →

I like to use the cycles of the moon and sun to remind me of the bigger world that surrounds us—the earth beneath our feet, the air we travel through and that travels through us, the flaming ball of energy that supports life on our planet. It's a fun way to reflect on the world,... Continue Reading →

Making Room

When I sat down to write this post, I realized that I missed the July full moon. Not just posting about it—even being aware it was happening. This is something I try to avoid. Modern society has moved so far from the natural. Much of my life revolves around screens. Computer screens, phone screens, TV.... Continue Reading →

The Strong Sun Moon

Today is triply blessed for me. It's the Summer Solstice and the full moon for June—the Strong Sun Moon. And also, today is the release day for my latest scifi novella (which is not at all a coincidence 😉 ). It's a good time to take stock of the last year, and after reading my... Continue Reading →

The Flower Moon

Another full moon is upon us. This one is The Flower Moon. What would you like to blossom in your life? Financial stability? Flourishing creativity? Improved health and vitality? There are so many places where we can spend our time and energy. While I have many aspects of my life that I'm actively cultivating at... Continue Reading →

The Wind Moon

The full moon in April is sometimes called the Wind Moon. This is a time for action. The Wind Moon can fill our sails, giving us renewed energy to continue on our path. Wind can also be cleansing, and the moon is good for pulling us out of ruts and giving that little tug that... Continue Reading →
