The new moon, of no importance, lingers behind as the yellow sun glares and is gone beyond the seas edge: earth smokes blue; the new moon, in cool height above the blushes, brings a fresh fragrance of heaven to our senses.

Moon Laundry

Love Calls Us to the Things of This World
Richard Wilbur 

The eyes open to a cry of pulleys,
And spirited from sleep, the astounded soul
Hangs for a moment bodiless and simple
As false dawn.
Outside the open window
The morning air is all 
awash with angels.

Some are in bed-sheets, some are in blouses,
Some are in smocks: but truly there they are.
Now they are rising together in calm swells
Of halcyon feeling, filling whatever they wear
With the deep joy of their impersonal breathing;

Now they are flying in place, conveying
The terrible speed of their omnipresence, moving
And staying like white water; and now of a sudden
They swoon down into so rapt a quiet
That nobody seems to be there.
The soul shrinks

From all that is about to remember,
From the punctual rape of every blessed day,
And cries,
``Oh, let there be nothing on earth but laundry,
Nothing but rosy hands in the rising steam
And clear dances done in the sight of heaven.''

Yet, as the sun acknowledges
With a warm look the world's hunks and colors,
The soul descends once more in bitter love
To accept the waking body, saying now
In a changed voice as the man yawns and rises,

``Bring them down from their ruddy gallows;
Let there be clean linen for the backs of thieves;
Let lovers go fresh and sweet to be undone,
And the heaviest nuns walk in a pure floating
Of dark habits,
keeping their difficult balance.''

Moon thoughts

Hello Friends and Dreamers,

I've been reminiscing a lot these days--about my year with the Moon, about love and where it leads us, and how a single pure moment can change the course of a life forever. 
I've also been thinking about the beautiful souls who have come together with me to bring the Moons into being. I can't begin to say how much I love them all. I wish I could name a star after each bright spirit. 

wishing you all well!

Ooo La La La!

Happy May! 
The 2nd Annual Ooo La La May Day Parade was celebrated downtown Friday evening by members of what is sometimes referred to as the Ooo La La Gang. It meant a lot to me to take the Golden Egg for a walk. Big thanks to the Pink Door for graciously hosting our party of May revelers. As Cody said the other night, "If you see a pink poodle on May Day, it's a really good sign. Expect to fall in love." 
It's true!
Happy May Day!

Thank you to John Small for the photos!

These are some of the many hands that bring the Wonders into being. I am wildly grateful for each and every finger, seen and unseen.

With sweet wishes to you on this Valentine's Eve,
