Unfortunately, we will not be able to see the lunar eclipse this time around but it is still a marvel and wonder to me.
I love the name of the full moon in April....the Pink Moon, also called the Awakening Moon. It is so named for the flowers (moss, phlox and others) that have already bloomed in many parts of the northern hemisphere. I remember the first time Shelley my daughter became aware of the different names for the full moons. She must have been about four and was very excited to get outside and see the moon. In her mind the name implied that it would be big and beautifully Pink. I remember the sour look on her face when she saw the same beautiful old golden glowed orb looking back at her from the heavens. "Hey, where's the Pink"? she grumbled. I will never forget that pouty bottom lip of hers as I explained how it's only the name, not the color of the moon.

One of my favorite childrens books is Everything I see is part of Me. I am the moon, the fire, the wind, the earth and most especially for me.........the stars and beyond.
I hope that this full moon brings you hope, health, happiness and peace. Oma Linda
