30 December 2009


As most of you know, tomorrow is the last full moon of 2009. Not only is it a full moon, but it is a blue moon with a partial lunar eclipse. Even though the eclipse won't be visible on this side of the pond, it still has a lot of magical influence. On top of it all, it's a wishing moon. So, before you go to bed or at least before 3:14pm tomorrow, make a wish. Look to our lady moon and tell her your deepest desire.

I'm going to, before I go to bed tonight. I'll walk outside in the freezing temperature and even though it is cloudy and I may not be able to see her, I'll whisper my wish to the wind and know it is carried up to the beautiful, glowing orb in the sky.

My wish is almost decided upon. It is something I have dreamed of and longed for often. Something wished for in the past, despaired over and left forgotten. Something...important.

What will you wish for? (I don't really need to know, sometimes it is best not to share our wish. I just want you to wish for something.)

I've been thinking a lot lately about words. Last year about this time, a woman I greatly admire and respect told of her word for the year. On a friends blog, she had seen the idea of having a word to focus on for the year. It was a wonderful story of how she found her word and the idea was something that I really liked. Try as I might, I could never come up with one word. (I've seen this mentioned several times today on many a blog.)

When I think of what word I would like to focus on for the coming year, my brain is flooded with images of words. It's like a rushing river, words and pictures passing by so quickly, that to grab one is almost impossible. What do I want to bring to my life, I've asked myself. What do I want to improve? What do I want to let go? It seems so hard to choose. I'm still searching for my word. I'm not going to feel pressured to decide before the first. I'm going to have faith that it will come to me when it is time.

I'm sure I'll share when I find it. I hope you'll share yours, if you want, with me.

I am a little supersticious so I won't post what my wish will be. But I will be making a wish.

I hope you wish comes true.

I hope you find your word but if not I think many words can be just as appropriate.

I'm sure your word will come to you - perhaps "wish" was meant to be your word, because I've heard it many times this week, and until reading your post just now, it has not really resonated with me.

I'll make my wish tonight too - thanks for the inspiration!

Whatever you decide to wish for, I wish for you that it comes to pass.
