Thank goodness for my Sparky Jones Hat!

Today the wind is blowing 30 mph which means so is the dirt. YUCK! Definitely not a day to run errands, but off to the post office I go.  Luckily, I bought this adorable hat from Sparky Jones.  Her unique hats and accessories are made from vintage clothing items.  So not only do you get a great hat but you get to help out the environment too.  See more of her goodies here.
Here is MY hat!  (Sorry no makeup today-my allergies are crazy due to the wind!)
It’s even cute on the inside!!
 Do you have a favorite hat or accessory?

The day after the Super Moon…

Wow!  The “Super Moon” lived up to all the hype.  I thought I would share these photos taken by fellow Albuquerque-an Alix King.  He has an amazing eye and was able to create some stunning images.

The Sandia Mountains are west of the city.  I love this shot because you can see the mountains silhouetted on the moon’s face and the lights of the city look so small.  Helps to put things in perspective for me spiritually.

I like the juxtaposition of the two worlds, the urban and the mystical. 
Did you get any photos of the “Super Moon”?  Or were you too busy dancing under it’s glow?

Happy Ostara!

Super Moon Tonight!

Don’t miss tonight’s “Super Moon”.

Why is it a “Super Moon” 
“On 19 March, the full moon will appear unusually large in the night sky as it reaches a point in its cycle known as ‘lunar perigee’.

Stargazers will be treated to a spectacular view when the moon approaches Earth at a distance of 221,567 miles in its elliptical orbit – the closest it will have passed to our planet since 1992.

The full moon could appear up to 14% bigger and 30% brighter in the sky, especially when it rises on the eastern horizon at sunset or is provided with the right atmospheric conditions.”

Wow!  The universe is just amazing.  Will you be moon gazing this evening?

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

An Irish Blessing:
May you always have
Walls for the winds
A roof for the rain
Tea beside the fire
Laughter to cheer you
Those you love near you
And all your heart might desire.
May the luck of the Irish be with you today and always.
