Often we’re too busy to notice the view right in front of us. One of my students, when I asked about what they missed being away from home, softly described the view of the city at night from his bedroom window in what he called ‘the projects where I live.’
“At night,” he said, “the lights go on forever, and every light, I think, is a soul.”

Personal matters and responsibilities had grown to the point that I simply didn’t have the time or energy to keep up with my daily prompts.

Make art about feeling overwhelmed, about stopping to breathe in the midst of the onslaught, about caring for yourself in spite of the stress.

When I was a little, little girl, I saw an episode of the original Star Trek series in which all of the voices/souls of a lost planet swirled in a huge sphere of multicolored, sparkling light, floating through space. At five years old, I thought that must be what God is like.

Lunar eclipses occur when the moon passes into Earth’s shadow, and supermoons occur when the full moon happens at the same time the moon is closest to Earth in its orbit. On Jan. 31, all three of these celestial events will happen at the same time.
