July is normally the month when the new antlers of buck deer push out of their foreheads in coatings of velvety fur. It was also often called the Full Thunder Moon, for the reason that thunderstorms are most frequent during this time. Another name for this month’s Moon was the Full Hay Moon.
Last summer, I was in Cape Cod where there was an amazing full moon on Labor Day weekend. I texted a friend of mine the picture of the moon from the marsh I was at. They texted me back their full moon. From miles and miles away we were sharing the same experience.
I think the vastness of the universe can be unnerving. Something as simple as a full moon lets us know we aren't alone and we are connected.
The game, Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, proves that too. In my own life, I have been surprised to see who I am mutually friends with on FB. Add my sister Jane to the mix and here in Westchester, between the two of us, it gets almost comical.
Here's to the full moon and friendships near and far.
With that in mind, I once again ask for your generosity for the Anders Family. HERE is the link to the fundraiser. xoxo
