Aloha Mike and Edie,

I was up at 1:30am approx and watched as one of the brightest full moons ever was nibbled by earths' shadow...

until only a bright orange sliver was visible.... Then the clouds obscurred as they had on and off throughout the night---opening up at JUST the right times!

Later, I saw the moon had returned to fullness but was a big soft glowing orange color as it dissapeared behind the mountains on the horizon...around 4am... Wonderful!!! I was at a gathering with about 40 others on rural land with abundant gardens, tipi's (Native American tents) and respect for the harmonies/cycles of nature. We did ritual around the fire. I sang and played my battery powered CASIO with other musician/drummers in this powerless, yet powerful environment. we each spoke our intention of our selfs and planetary healing.
