4/29/2018 is the night of April’s full moon. We usually have a campfire the night of the full moon so if you’re in the area, stop by!
April’s moon is the Pink Moon which comes from one of the first spring flowers, Wild Ground Phlox, as they cover the ground like a pink blanket, according to the Farmer’s Almanac.
I like to be outside during the full moon (day or night, rainy, overcast or clear skies). I am more grounded, more centered, feel stronger and energized. It has become a ritual practice for me to toss my burdens/worries into the blaze. The light from the campfire is also very hypnotic and meditative. Relaxation is the only thing on the agenda. BYOB if you wish and a blanket to sit upon. We usually begin at dusk or shortly thereafter. Any/all topics are welcome and at some point I generally do a guided meditation for the group.
One summer evening after the fire had long gone out, my son and I were sitting on top of the picnic table. I remember looking toward the tree line. The fireflies were lighting up the trees like twinkle-lights and the night bugs were providing nature’s song. I told my son to commit that moment to memory because it was perfect. More nights should be like that. More moments. More memories.
