It’s Been Quite Some Time…

well hello there gorgeous

It’s been quite some time since I last posted.  Last October in fact!   I was kinda disinterested in maintaining this blog and lack all motivation in keeping this going.

My priorities have changed now and I think that it is a really good idea to keep this going.  My original intent is still here and I think it is a good thing to have this creative outlet to come to if I need to vent or to simply put something out there.  Blogging is also very therapeutic too as well.

I don’t intend this to be an online diary of my day to day activities.  I have my own personal journal on my nightstand that I put my pen to paper.  I still intend to post own original work here and other things that I love as well as things that inspire me that I hope in turn inspire you as well.  Think of it as a peek into my soul  and to who I am.

I invite you to come follow me, into the wild unknown.  Journey into the depths of a soul, of a story that has many, many levels, that are not always simple, cut & dry.

The Full Snow Moon

image

I hope you guys got out last night and caught a glimpse of the Full Snow Moon last night.  What a sight!  Chris got out of work last night about quarter to 10 last night and even though he worked doubles, 12 hours, straight through with no break, he offered to take me out to somewhere that offered an unobstructed view.

First, we stopped at Country Fair for something quick to eat along the way and decided to drive up to Phieffer Nature Center on top of Lillibridge road in Portville.  There is a big open field and ranges in elevation from 1,900 to 2,300 feet above sea level along a steep valley wall that faces west.  The views are spectacular and on a clear day you can see twenty-two miles west to the peaks of Allegany State Park.  Totally unobstructed and none of those pesky power lines that always “photobomb” my pictures here at the house.

It was pretty cold out so we didn’t stay long.  I got a dozen or so shots, a good group to choose from. 

Did you happen to see Jupiter was out?  The bright object in the sky below it to the left was Jupiter.  I got some shots of it too but either my camera is not powerful enough to capture it or I just don’t know how to shoot star and galaxy’s.

Did you get any amazing pictures last night?  Did you see the Full Snow Moon last night?  I’d love to hear about it in the comments section below.  If you liked this post, please like, share, and follow my blog if you haven’t already.  I’m trying to get a 100 followers by Spring.  Thanks!

The Full Snow Moon Is Happening Now…And It’s BIG!

image

The Full Snow Moon or “Snow Moon’ is the traditional name of the moon that occurs in February in North America.  Usually, February is a time for freezing cold and lots of snow, thus the name of the snow moon, hunger moon, Little Faminine moon, and the full bony moon, are some of the other traditional names this moon of February go by.

image

The Wishram Native Americans called this moon “Shoulder to Shoulder Around the Fire Moon”.  The Zuni Native Americans referred to this moon as “No Snow In the Trails Moon”.  The “Bone Moon” was the name given to this moon by the Cherokee.  So little food was available that people gnased on bones and ate bone marrow soup that Bone Moon got its name.

image

The Snow Moon is very special.  Lunar cycles are about 29 days long, so February has a full moon once about every 19 years.  This moon will visiable from 1:20PM EST Monday, and will maintain its flourishing, beautiful full appearence throughout the night.  It can be viewed throughout North America’s night sky provided clear skies remain.  She’s going to be HUGE!

Personally, it is such a blessing to me that she will be out because it is my birthday today because I love moons plus it is also a great photographic opportunity as well.  I won’t be able to the Full Snow Moon again until my 52nd birthday or thereabouts!  Wow!  Stay tuned tomorrow for some shots of it tonight.  But here are some photos of the phases of the moon leading up to it tonight.
