A Quote for Monday


"The moon does not fight.  It attacks no one.  It does not worry.  It does not try to crush others.  It keeps to its course, but by its very nature, it gently influences.  What other body could pull an entire ocean from shore to shore?  The moon is faithful to its nature and its power is never diminished."  Deng Ming-Dao, from "Everyday Tao: Living With Balance and Harmony" 

This is a photo of the Harvest Moon from September of last year.  It's cloudy here (it rained twice today, hooray), and I don't think I'll be able to get a photo of tonight's Harvest Moon.  But, even if I don't see Her, I know the Grandmother is there.  It is Oglala Sioux tradition to call the moon Grandmother.  There are four traditional names, common to many Native American tribes; Mother Earth, Father Sky, Grandfather Sun and Grandmother Moon. 


  1. My dear Victoria, what a haven of peace and beauty you have created here. I want to grab your Grandmother insight immediately.....another for us older crones to celebrate.....a beautiful image of our wonderful moon.....lovely to meet you....

  2. A truly enchanting photo, Victoria. Even the stars glimmer like little flashing jewels in the sky.
    You are such a good photographer.

    May the generous, gentle spirit of Grandmother Moon bless you all on your magical mountain.
