moon clouds


We've had a heatwave here -- it was in the 70s again yesterday so I watered all the recently-planted trees in our yard. Last night I went outside to walk around and take photos of the night -- the sky was cloudy but the full moon shone brightly through them.  Then during sleeping hours it started snowing and it snowed all day long today -- we have over 19" of snow! Heavy wet snow I might add, I tried to keep the house on the warm side in case the power went out.

The moon cloth I worked on this afternoon reminds me a little of those moon clouds or even a moon halo. It's an older piece that doesn't require anything from me other than a needle and some thread, no decision-making required. Which can be so nice.

Now is the time where the edges of winter and spring (or summer and autumn) overlap. A spring snow clearly fits the description but I'm thinking about what other edges might overlap, both literally and figuratively....

Wishing you a happy spring and may mother moon shine brightly upon you. xx

the overlapping is here too...first I quicken, then slow, retreat, then advance. Like Spring....prickly with activity internally. Blessings and light. (as for your question on my last post--"May you be light" might be Buddhist...it's a wish with a double meaning...light meaning both illuminated and not heavy :-->

Liking the gentle spring palette in your moon cloth. There is a blurrying of season and mind over here, too. Sweater one day, t-shirt the next. Of knowing and wondering, too.

Your photo looks like an indigo night. Beautiful color. I see a triangle surrounding the moon. Another geometric thought going through my head.
