Full Wolf Moon - Jan 2017
The moon woke me up this morning at 5 a.m., it was blazing bright through the skylight. I watched it for at least 20 minutes through the bare branches of the trees. Clouds came and went and the light muted or popped, dancing against the tree silhouettes.
My mind has been racing lately, what with starting a new job and getting up to speed and entering at a very busy time, with long days and longer to do lists. When I was first awakened I closed my eyes tighter and tried to get back to sleep, but then thought, why not take advantage of this stillness and just drink in the moment. Following the advice of the poet Roethke, I wake to sleep, but take my waking slow...
The moon is officially full this morning at 6:43 am.
