Day 83: Full Moon Friday
After a week of roller coaster riding Friday was a pleasant middle of the road day, not too high, not too low, not too slow, not too fast, pulling the strands and the threads steadily together before heading out for a moonlight stroll. My phone, of all things, inform me that this is the night of the full moon while Facebook is littered with notes about the rarity of a full moon on Friday 13th, something that has not occured since 1991 and will not occur again until 2098. It also coincides with a burst of solar flare activity, all in all a combination of events that triggers stories of myths and supersition.
The full moon in June was known as the “strawberry” moon by the Algonquin Indian tribes as it marked the time of the year to harvest the fruit. It is more familar here as a “honey” moon because of it’s colour – a result of the juxtaposition of the sun at it’s highest in the sky and the moon at it’s lowest giving it it’s yellow colour -and the fact that bees in their hives were at the height of their honey production. However honeymoon is probably more familiar as meaning the holiday a bride and groom take after their wedding as June was the traditional month for marriage ceremonies. All in all a full moon with a few more stories than normal attached to it. My experience of it was a game of peek a boo behind the clouds as I tried to take a photo which had me smiling at the end of a rather focused serious day.
100 Days of Awe is a playful project I set up to bring my attention to awe in my daily life. I see awe as wonder, a mixture of amazement and respect. I expect the experience of awe to be about perception shifting awareness and that demands a reframing of some sort. I am excited to see what will awe me on this journey.
