How November’s new moon is guiding us to our own personal evolution

17 Nov 2017 la luna

It may feel like it’s a bit early, but it is time to begin to look back on this year. Twenty seventeen is slowly drawing to a close, and the energy of hibernation, darkness, and incubation is settling in. This is the time of year when it feels as if nothing is happening. And, yet, beneath the surface, all is being renewed. We can’t see it, we don’t feel it, and we don’t have any proof of it. So, it’sRead More

I’ve had enough of thoughts + prayers. I want to see empathy in action.

Why must something happen to us in order for us to begin to give a damn?

Why aren’t people able to step out of themselves, see another person, understand that they are struggling, and offer a bit of compassion?

27 Jan 2017 la luna

It’s just what we need, isn’t it? Hope. Because right now it’s dark. Literally + figuratively. Literally it is the first new moon of the year. The darkest night that rolls around every month.

Making the night more dark than usual. Figuratively, IRead More

23 Nov 2016 culture + art
