A Quiet Thursday

I really enjoyed watching the Equinox moon rise last night and I woke up early enough to still see it in the morning. I feel wonderful when that happens. To see it rise toward the front of my house and see it set in the morning on the other side of the house makes me feel so good. 

It always occurs to me that every single person on this earth is looking at the same moon, sometimes hours before me, or hours after me. I never tire of pondering that.

I don't know why, but I've always loved looking at the moon, especially when it's full and close to the horizon. I always think of the movie Moonstruck when I see a low full moon that looks enormous, and think of "Cosmo's moon".

I did end up trimming a tiny bit last evening. Well really, it was more of a dusting, because I literally trimmed off so little that what came off looked like dust. It won't make much if any difference in length, but I just felt the need to follow the age-old ritual of trimming a bit on a fortunate day. 

Call me superstitious; I don't care. I feel as though I'm following in the footsteps of the ancestors when I follow old folklore.

Today it's been a quiet day, and very pleasant. Since I'm not going anywhere, I decided to let my hair marinate in a large quantity of coconut oil for most of the day, and I'm going to do a deep moisture treatment this evening. 

It's another movie night for me. I haven't chosen what I'm going to watch as yet, but I think I'm going to go with something new and mainstream. I've been watching a lot of indie movies of late, so it's time for a movie that perhaps other people I know may have actually seen.

I want to say hello and welcome to the new followers to this blog. I am ever humbled by the idea that anyone follows this blog, and very appreciative.

I myself need to start commenting more on the blogs that I read. I am the worst at making comments. I don't know why, but I often think that what I have to say is irrelevant. I need to change my thinking about that, because I know just how much it means to me when people comment on my own blog.

I do want to say that I enjoy all of the blogs to which I am subscribed, and I am going to work on being more interactive.

Well, it's time to start with the hair routine before I decide on a movie.

'Til tomorrow, my friends. Much love to all, and extra hugs to anyone who is worried today.


  1. Hello dear friend! I too watched the moon last night (but missed it coming up as I was trying to catch lightning shots from the storm to the northwest) and was up at 6 this morning with my two youngest kids watching the misty moon for a few minutes before they went to early-morning church. It is a simply wondrous and fantastical thing, the full moon. I feel so blessed to have such a fascination with something so earthy (and yet heavenly at the same time. Or is it the other way around??? ;) )

    Have you ever seen the movie Birds of America (with Matthew Perry and Lauren Graham)? It's a pretty darn good "indie" movie about a dysfunctional family. Right up my alley.

    Much love

  2. Hi! I've been following your blog for about a month now! I've learnt how to do so many things via you! The Rope Braid (And a bun to go with it is it the Rose bun?),Gibson tuck, Peacock Twist etc.. Since my hair is so short I have to do the braids on my Dad, but you are inspiring me!!! =D

  3. I've always loved to look at the moon, especially the full moon. I love the way things look in moonlight.


I love hearing from you.
