I wonder if sentient beings on other worlds created myths about their multiple moons to comfort them in their long evolutionary awakening as we have here on earth for our one moon? Now we know there are no goddesses dwelling on the moon - no mythical creatures at all. Now we know the intrigue of moonlight is not even the light of the moon itself but a reflection of the sun. Though the old mysteries have died with the space age, our moon remains mysterious and alluring in our consciousness.
Should I reincarnate to earth in a future lifetime, when humans will have mined and polluted the moon as surely as we have the earth, I wonder if she will be held in any reverence whatsoever then.
|The Lakota Moon of the Shedding Horns, the last full moon of 2016 setting over the west bend of the creek at dawn|
|And in the east, the Supreme Beings attentive to something only they can hear.|
|The same morning as I was leaving for work.|
|The last full moon of 2016 slipping behind the prairie hills for the last time.|
|The rising of the 2016 November super moon|
