working as part of a ‘Japanese 72 season micro-climate’ artist collaborative initiative within Treesisters)
Japanese season called ‘Taisetsu’ / greater snow, 7th December – 21st December
Micro climate ‘bears start hibernating in their dens’ 12th December – 16th December
Stayed up nearly all last night following the election reveal.
It really is all such a mess!
No proportional representation. Little co-operation between parties.
All tactics and no substance.
Extinction Rebellion is the only ‘politics’ that makes any sense to me now.
People’s assemblies the way to go.
Found myself writing that I am so sick, of all these fences and walls, that now I choose to sit firmly on the ground that runs UNDER all of them.
Thank goodness for the clarity of Clare Dubois’s December Full Moon Call.
There was reference to the reflection of the moon in water, so I was excited by the divine timing of seeing this from the bedroom window (when I crawled to bed at 4.30am!).
So I grabbed my camera, went out barefoot, into the frozen night and attempted to capture it.
I love the moonlight.
I quite like these ‘arty’ shots.
The moon was also shining as the sun rose……
This is the stuff of life.
And then I peeked at Facebook and this was pretty much the first share I read!
“Enlightenment is like the moon
reflected on the water.
The moon does not get wet,
nor is the water broken.
Although its light is wide and great,
the moon is reflected
even in a puddle an inch wide.
The whole moon and the entire sky
are reflected in one dewdrop.
Treading along in this dreamlike,
Without looking for the traces
I may have left;
A cuckoo’s song beckons me
to return home;
I tilt my head to see
Who has told me to turn back;
But do not ask me where I am going,
As I travel in this limitless world,
Where every step I take is my home.”
