New Moon Song: October.

New moon rising at 7.56 am.

The new moon is a time of beginnings.

The dross and nonsense of the previous month has been washed away by its waning moon, and the path has been cleared. Nature is there to lend some oomph for the changes you wish to make; if you observe her rhythms, if you let the dark of the moon become the deep earth where the new month is sown. So make your list, and watch the things you wish for grow, night after night, as silver and quick as the waxing moon.

My List:

More hiking.

More silence.

More writing.

More laughing.

More food.

Less wine.

Less whining.IMG_0504.JPG

“Like some winter animal the moon licks the salt of your hand,
Yet still your hair foams violet as a lilac tree
From which a small wood-owl calls.”
Johannes Bobrowski.

Here’s how to charge up your charm to the new moon: watch for her slim crescent sitting low in the west, and almost translucent above the setting sun; think hard about change, blow her a kiss and press play.
