The full moon -

Tonight is the full harvest moon, which should be spectacular, since people were exclaiming over the moon last night.

Today is Chris's 29th birthday, and he received the gift of a huge raise yesterday, so he has much to celebrate.   We will celebrate tomorrow, for tonight Steve and I have tickets to the MV Film Festival.  I look forward to that, while again today struggling with the political news.   There are so many great columns on the ethical side that I should be comforted, and I again find myself wondering about continuing to live in this country.   This happens to me every once in a while, and  I will adjust, and somehow am feeling hit particularly hard right now.  Maybe it is just a way to integrate.   A year ago I was awaiting surgery.    Now, I am healed, and finding my way backward or forward, whichever way it goes.

When I began painting on silk, I formed what I called Sacred Hoops.   I painted in circles.   I was told that form would be hard for people to accept.   They are used to squares and rectangles.  Today, I saw a painting of a sandpiper and it was round.   It was hanging amidst squares and rectangles, and it is what I loved.  It came toward me.  I felt the sandpiper in my midst.   May we live in the circle of the teepee today, the campfire, the seasons, the rhythm, the harvest of a circular, circulating life.
