August 8/Third Quarter Moon
It takes as long as it takes.
I write this from our yearly family camp. I wrote a little bit about where I am and how I got here last year when full moon came around while I was here. This year it coincides with the halfway point between full and new. Still in the forgiveness part of the cycle. Last year when I wrote from camp, the thing I chose to emphasize by the light of the moon were the values that have allowed this project to flourish. This is our 18th year. Last year I wrote this post by faint cellular out by the picnic table, I broke with off-grid practice to write the newsletter. Read it here. This year there is full wifi and I haven’t been practicing off-the-grid, after a summer of being off-grid, this is an in-contact retreat. So here I am with my computer able to write captions on my photos and link to other pages.
