*Note: The full moon has been an object of fascination, lore, and storytelling in our human culture even before written history. The movement of the moon across the sky is seen by many cultures as a sacred journey that represents the rhythm, ebb, and flow of life and the universe. This One phase of the moon, in particular, has created more intrigue, symbolism, and mythology than any other and that is the full moon.

Entangled confused~

*Note: what most people don’t know is that dementia sometimes takes root at a younger age, the signs may not show themselves until middle age. (Below is a link to more information about dementia.) I dedicate this to my best friends mother Juanita (she was like my second Mom, we even shared the same birthday). She was a brilliant woman (she was an integral part in instituting the bilingual program in the Chicago School System) and a much loved teacher by her students. As always a song.
