Black Moon Rising

Dateline – Friday, September 30, 2016: Black Moon Rising 

We are about to experience a very rare lunar phenomenon…a Black Moon. Simply stated, the Black Moon is a second New Moon in a calendar month. Just like the Blue Moon, a second Full Moon in a month, the Black Moon comes to us as an extra day of oomph.

Everyone has their own interpretation of the Moon phases and how to use them in their personal lives. As this is the first Black Moon we’ve had in awhile, I am choosing to use the energy of this Moon in a special way.

On Friday evening, after the Sun has set, I plan to go outside and sit under the dark sky. My goal for the Black Moon is to set some intentions and use the power of the second September New Moon to help manifest the dreams I would like to see come to pass.

My intention setting rituals are very basic. Some tools I plan to use in my meditation are as follows: (more…)

Coming soon…

I’m finishing up a little book of reflections, poetry and meditations based on each phase of the moon.

If you read my novel Velvet you will remember that the book is filled with magical scenes, a few of which involve the moon. As a moon watcher, I tend to fill my stories and my artwork with moon images.

It’s an Echo thing, for sure.

I’m truly looking forward to publishing this little book in the very near future. It’ll be a little book with a little price tag.

My wish and hope is that you enjoy reading and using it as much as I enjoyed creating it and putting it all together.

It’s a little gift from my moonlit heart to yours.

Such a good reminder for anyone with the desire to write. Just write.

I can remember 30 some-odd years ago when I realized that I had a gift in the area of writing. Having made straight A’s in English from my earliest school years through college, I discovered a bit later in life that I could use this innate ability to express myself.

More than anything, I wanted to write.

Back during the summer of 1996, while the Summer Olympics were being played out all across the metro Atlanta area, I was taking the MARTA train to and from work. During the Olympics mania, I was writing what would become my first novel idea.

What enthusiasm I brought to the project. Looking back, I can’t help but smile.

I was writing a story based on a real-life experience I’d had involving an 80’s rock star. I worked and worked on that story for nearly ten years but could never finish it. There was no good way to conclude it. And to top it off, our house was burglarized and my computer stolen. (more…)

September…the herald of things to come

For those of us in the northern hemisphere who have suffered from a terribly hot summer, the first day of September brings with it the hope for a cooler tomorrow. While here in the Southeastern US we are still dealing with the heat (and a tropical storm to boot), we know that autumn is on its way.

When the autumnal equinox hits here in Georgia, the only transitional experience we have is the tilt of the sun on the horizon. The heavenly shadows created as the sun moves further south in the sky gives us a reason to pause and reflect. Sad that summer is coming to an end, we rejoice in the cooler and less humid days that are rapidly approaching.

September is the herald of things to come. Good things. May September bring with it a beautiful autumnal season for my fellow readers north of the equator, and a beautiful spring season to those south of it.
