Full Moon Rise

Tuesday night I spent time watching the moonrise. A #Supermoon #Pinkmoon brought people around the planet out to pause and admire its beauty. Watching it travel through the clouds as the sky grew dark was powerful. In spite of everything that’s going on right now, the moon doesn’t care. She does her thing, looking allContinue reading “Full Moon Rise”

It’s fun to watch them respond to the story and then talk about it afterwards. I also share a slide show withContinue reading “Reflections on a School Visit”
