February’s Snow Moon was a little special for the same reason Januarys’ Wolf Moon. I got to see it from the other side of the world! Oahu, Hawaii and the Big Sur, California!

I’m not sure why I or us humans like the moon. Maybe like the sun it’s its constant yet ever changing predictable presence. Maybe it’s connection to nature. Maybe as its inspired thousands of stories. Maybe it’s its mystery. Maybe it’s because the night isn’t so dark, there’s light and light always triumphs the dark.
Anyways don’t forget to look up into the sky! Both the night and day sky and dream big!
Oahu Moon. In traffic the power lines caught my eye. Only later I noticed the moon! Okay, I know this is a bad shot, however as you’ll see in the next photoIt was only two days between the two shots. Five hours apart by plane. Two locations on Earth, difference perspective. Here a Big Sur Continue reading “February 2020 Snow Moon”
January’s Wolf Moon or to be precise February’s waxing Snow Moon was a little extra Special. I got to see the moon from the other side of the world! A Northern California and a Hawaiian Oahu moon. A moon so bright and clear in the lesser polluted skies of Hawaii. Even the stars seemed bigger and brighter. I won’t lie I didn’t want to leave Oahu (or California. Big slap in the face when back). As much as I love the mountains there’s something about the sea and ocean that draws me. If I’ve been inland a while seeing the sea and ocean I feel complete as much as I can if that makes sense.

December’s Cold moon’s always magical. The days are shorter, the sun sits lower in the sky lightening up the moon something spellbinding. I don’t think any other month the moon is so visible in sky. The moon has a glow that no other month can match.
This is a hard post to write. Not because of the moon but because leading up the 18th December 2019 my photos are filled with Mr D the cat. Lots of tears coming across them. I’ve never shared here on before 2 weeks last year before his brother Mr AJ said his last see you later, I dreamt about tornadoes outside my window. So many tornadoes. Looking up what tornadoes in dreams mean and the colour they meant a death was soon. I also dreamt of floods or rather my apartment outside being underwater while the apartment was airtight and the washing outside survived. A few weeks before Mr D said his last see you later I kept seeing a lot of jackdaws at the zoo. It’s not like I’ve never seen or heard them there before. This time I wanted to be sure what bird they were if they were jackdaws from the zoo’s resident wild bird list. As I kept seeing so many I looked up their meaning. You guessed it, some cultures see them as a sign of a death soon. Now I think nothing of them as I hear them all the time there. No message there! And lets not mention a dark presence I felt in the corner ceiling one evening before D went. I think that was more I knew what was happening with my mind playing tricks. All I know is I miss those 2 little boys.

Woohoo! Spring’s officially here!
Warmer longer days, yes please! Spring’s being say hi here for a few weeks and only now it’s just just warm enough for a denim jacket, T-shirt with a jumper needed at night. Though I’ve been more like the locals, sticking with my lightweight puffer jacket. Cherry blossom’s out already and trees are getting dressed. Aside from allergies, this girl’s happy spring’s here!
Anyway, for anyone interested a little March catch up. Continue reading “March Catch Up”
Please excuse Weekend Friday Favourites on a Monday. All I had to do was sort out photos, add links and edit last night. My eyes got so so sleepy before I knew it, it’s Monday morning:
I can’t believe this weekend is the 2nd to last weekend of of summer. From next Friday the zoo closes an hour earlier until the clocks go back when it switches to winter hours. That’s weeks from now but it’ll fly! There’s still however a week and half of summer to go. Autumn Fall can wait a little longer.
Anyways, I hope you’re having a great weekend and I’ll leave ya Continue reading “Weekend Friday Favourites”
