Spirit Moon - January

photo credit
Sometimes when the full moon passes over the skylight, it is so bright it wakes me up.

Ojibway call this moon, Spirit Moon, or Gichi-manidoo-giizis.  My grandmother (father's mother) was Ojibway, and although I never really had a chance to meet or speak with her, I feel a connection to the tribe.

This time of the year, with the blanket of snow for reflection, the moonshadows are especially bright, even in the heart of the city.

And speaking of moonshadows and great spirits.....
