What a difference 90 plus days make. Here’s my new dear companion…meet Bodhi…she’s a little less than a year old and I found her at the Virginia Beach SPCA on December 10. We’ve had a bit of time to get to know one another and we’re happily racking up the miles as we walk the wooded neighborhood or the maritime forest paths at the park right across from the beaches of the Chesapeake Bay…she’s a happy girl.
Shortly after she arrived so did her new sister…meet JuneBug, born October 1 and truly full of herself and all that each day offers.
It’s been a long time since ’Following the Moon’ posted yet truly, and wonderfully, La Luna has been in the lead the whole way.
Instead of posting here, or anywhere, there’s been a lot, a lot of long-hand (ahhh…don’t you love the feel of the pen gliding across the page taking a line for a walk ‘-) writing and drawing going on and out of that some new sense of space has been created. That space has been made up of silence in both long walks and in taking an opportunity, during the quieting time of the natural year to simply step back. I have learned anew that trusting the feminine process of being, as in ’not doing’, is clearly… not easy….somewhat unnerving…but oh my…I begin to sense into how excellent the dividends and possibility can be. Right here. Right now.
In conjunction with Following the Moon…each year since 1998 between October and December I write the Yearly Lifecycle Forecast. This is a way of walking around the natural wheel of the year in tune with the cycles and the seasons while also aligning with the global energy that can drive creativity in an uplifting and impassioned way.
Year after year Lifecycle Forecast is a creative way of looking at and mapping a new relationship with time.
The article is always published by my friends, and fellow ‘Luna-tics’, Sandra and David Mosley over at ZodiacArts…also on their site…throughout the year, at the New Moon, I add the current natural/creative energy read.
Round we go…creating the Art/Life by ‘Following the Moon’.
The 2013 Lifecycle Forecast article is long I know… (it addresses the energy that will be visiting all year)…and our attention span is known to be shorter all the time…so the article is something that can be bookmarked and savored.
I send you so much quiet joy from the land of puppylove.
