come together moonday

A heart is coming together here in the spirit of Aquarius. I keep having the Come Together Beatles song in my head with this one . . . I know you, you know me, one thing I can tell you is you got to be free . . . so, of course, I googled the lyrics and up popped this most interesting interpretation that surmises each verse is a description of one of the Beatles. I tell you, I was glad to see it wasn't about a drug trip like I thought.

                                                                                                                                      come together

With this moonday being a waning moon in Aquarius, it feels light and airy and free. This can be an imaginative, outgoing time when it's easy to connect with people, but it also lacks a deeper emotional quality. And that's just fine --  I see it as a little rest from the seriousness of it all. With the moon in the process of waning, the time has come and gone for celebrating our accomplishments. We can go easy on ourselves now, let go of stuff (on all levels), and clear spaces (on all levels) to make room for what comes next.

Aquarius rules the lower leg  -- standing still for long periods of time goes against the very nature of this day when you think about it. It's feet up tonight!

Project-wise, I hope to sew on some things I've already taken the first steps on, being inspired as I go and without trying too hard. For instance, the mending pile -- another pair of jeans soon-to-be capris or maybe even bermuda shorts? Does anyone even say bermuda shorts anymore?

Deanna, that's one easy thing about a black background, you can use any color and it looks pretty good.

Oh good about bermudas -- they could've gone the way of petal-pushers!

The colors you have chosen for your split heart go together really well :)
How special to have thread that is your mom's.
And yes, people still say Bermuda shorts. I hear it on a regular basis.
Regarding the mooday...I need a rest from all the seriousness! :)

Thanks, Marie -- seem to have a green thing going -- craving green food and green cloth! I love my mom's threads, they must be pretty old because they have funky labels, and I know she likes me using them, from out there in the great beyond.

Cindy -- oh, wow, your sister's hearts are so cool, I love the gold one with the red stitching/binding! And, they're real hearts, well, not real, you know what I mean. Thanks for telling me about them. They make me think about longish stitching now.
Feet up!
