The Names and Dates of the Full Moons in 2002

 

Have you ever noticed how the full moon always seems to catch your eye? The American Indian also had a special relationship with each moon. Indian tribes used the full moon to keep track of the seasons by giving a distinctive name to each recurring full moon. The moons were named by the events of the particular season.

I remember smelling the delicious aroma of simmering spaghetti sauce the minute I walked into the building where our apartment was located. My college senior husband often combined studying with preparing our evening meals. That sauce took hours to cook so I knew this was going to be a special evening.

The four corners of our one room apartment made up our entire living area. One corner, (our living room) normally contained an over stuffed chair. The second corner, opposite of the first...

Children and Christmas

 

The best thing about having children (or grandchildren) around Christmas time, is that they remind you that happiness comes from the simple joy of doing whatever they have in mind.

Dear Cousin,

 

Buttermilk clouds riffle across the wide expanse of the sky this morning, as another mild day unfolds in the hills. One of our sons complained this morning "it doesn't feel a bit like Christmas." It is true that we have had an extended fall season of warm weather, and with no snowflakes filling the air; it is hard to imagine that we are only a few days away from Christmas. Still, I am convinced that Christmas is all about memories anyway. My mind drifts back to a Christmas...
