ugh. I'm sick - again.  I think i'm just sick of being sick really.  I've had this damn cold/virus whatever on and off for the past 4 months and to be honest the novelty has worn extremely thin.  Added to it the various worries and stresses that seem to be piling up with alarming speed, i just feel like crawling into a nice warm bed and not getting up till  may sometime...

...pity party over, back to the day...

Lunar musings

I've been noticing the presence of the moon more than usual in the past week or so.  I'm not sure why, it just seems to be closer and clearer than it has been for a long time. 

My relationship with the moon (at the risk of sounding "fluffy") has always been quite an intimate one.  A long term insomniac means that the moon has been my only companion on many a walk at 2am.  I aways have to be able to see it in the sky through a window or i can't even attempt to sleep, and I often spend time just watching it with a warm drink in hand, silently conversing with who or whatever entity may reside there.

The phases of course are important, at new moon I tend to be laconic and uninspired, full moon is (unsuprisingly) when i have the most energy, although a side product is that I fall over more...full moons also mean that i tend to get slightly odder, but in a positive way.

The half is what i feel to be the most spiritual phase.  It is at this time i become introspective and focused, and am most likely to perform rituals.  I have been reflecting on why this is recently, concluding that the balace between light and dark makes it a perfect time to work in.

I think its the weather here that has brought the moon to my attention.  It has been those amazingly crystal clear winter days, with frosty blue skies and that slight icy tinge in the back of your throat when you breathe.

I saw the moon in the afternoon today.  It made me happy.

I'm hoping that having this livejournal will help me to carry out a resolution i made to write more this year.  So far its not been a successful endevour, but having a lj will change all that (crosses fingers).

As a result the entries here will be a variety of musings, rants (of which i'm sure they'll be many), poems and stories and whatever else floats across my head.

I originally wanted to write something every day, but i think i'll start with something every few just to warm up. 

here's to the next entry!

Greetings

Well my first entry...

I guess i should put something thought-provoking and profound here about my intentions, but to be honest i have no idea what they are at the moment.  I really just created this as a way to record thoughts and ideas so theres not really any sort of theme going on.

Its 2:00am and i'd really like a coffee - except we dont have any...this happens a lot in my life...
