It’s the Full Worm Moon, about which Jamie says:
“When I first heard the phrase ‘Full Worm Moon,’ I was less than enthusiastic, but as I discovered that this March moon is when the earth starts to soften and the burrowers of her soil find their way to the surface, I started to change my mind. What if we took our cue from spring and allowed ourselves to soften?”
I’ve been craving spaciousness, both internal and external, which is why I included the larger photo of the girl in the open field of flowers, arms outstretched. Since external spaciousness, for me, would require a good spring cleaning, I included the image of the clothesline. Creating this spaciousness will require me to soften my grip on things that no longer serve me, to let go of the constant “need” to be busy, and to be gentle with myself during that process.
If I softened, words would find their way to the surface to be written, hence the image of the pen and notebook.
Finally, I can’t not celebrate the official start of Spring tomorrow, or notice that daffodils are blooming all over. I can’t help softening into the season, with the return of warmth and color.
These are the things I am dreaming of for the lunar month ahead. What about you? What are you dreaming of?
