Full Egg Moon - April

Songkhla Hash House Harriers

Ah, the mysterious full moon has arrived again, right on schedule.

Known as the pink moon by some North American Indian tribes because of the pink ground phlox that grows with the waxing moon.

Also known this year as the Paschal Full Moon because it's the first full moon of the spring season.

Egg Moon - March 2010
But, as this is the full moon before Easter,  I think I'll celebrate the occasion of the Full Egg Moon.

In fact, the Moon Society sounds like it is having fun with its Carnival of the Egg Moon - no invitation required!

Serendipity and searches on the Full Egg Moon are bringing me some wonderful illustrations and musings on fellow lunatics' blogs and websites.

And of course I mean lunatic in the most affectionate way!

Singing songs, telling stories, painting beautiful images.  Honouring the moon in all its unique faces and places.

It makes me contemplate the many weird and wonderful people alive this moment on the planet, the many who have come before, and those whose time is yet to come.
The Daily Bite

Billions. All of us arising, abiding, dissolving.

As impermanent as a full moon, as magical as a moonbeam...
