Because of the dog’s joyfulness, our own is increased.


“Because of the dog’s joyfulness, our own is increased. It is no small gift.
It is not the least reason why we should honor as well as love the dog of
our own life, and the dog down the street, and all the dogs not yet born.
What would the world be like without music or rivers or the green
and tender grass? What would this world be like without dogs?”

Full Moon Blessings!

This February Super Full Moon is the biggest and brightest moon in 2019. The Full Moon will be at zero degree in the Virgo sign on February 19th. Zero degree of any sign is a special occurrence that contains within unlimited potential of un-manifested opportunities. Full Moon encourages us to bring to the forefront our dreams, ideas and soul longing and unveil the new self on a personal level and in the collective. Dream the new, unlock possibilities and have a fresh start.
The name of this Full Snow Moon came from the native tribes of the north where the month of February usually had the biggest snowfall. Sometimes it was also referred to as the Full Hunger Moon since food was scarce due to difficult hunting in harsh winter conditions.

…..anything or anyone that does not bring you alive is too small for you.


You must learn one thing:
the world was made to be free in.

Give up all the other worlds
except the one to which you belong.

Sometimes it takes darkness and the sweet
confinement of your aloneness
to learn

anything or anyone
that does not bring you alive
is too small for you.

Hello, sun in my face.


“Hello, sun in my face. 
Hello you who made the morning and spread it over the fields…
Watch, now, how I start the day in happiness, in kindness.”

#Omens&Symbols . . . . Nereids


Nereids are Sea nymphs. They symbolize everything that is beautiful and kind about the sea. They have melodious voices and sing as they dance. They are part of Poseidon’s entourage and carry his trident

Goodnight . . . . Oh, Man in the Moon

“Oh, man in the moon, send an evening star to wink at my dreary eyes,
and I shall make a wish for a peaceful world that spins with no more lies. 

Oh, man in the moon, send the night’s cool breeze to lull my leery heart,
and I shall cast my fears to the wind with ease, and watch them all depart.

Oh, man in the moon, send the sandman’s dust to rest my weary soul,
and I shall slumber in happy dreams until the morning bells do toll.”

― Richelle E. Goodrich.
