The Strength to Rise Up

During the month of January 2018, we will be treated to two full moons, and both will be “supermoons.” According to, in the Western Hemisphere, January 1st will bring, “the largest and brightest supermoon of 2018.”
I’ve been watching the waxing gibbous moon rise in the afternoons over the desert mountains. There was a lovely US Forest Service webcam photo showing the pinks and purples of sunset a couple of days ago as well. I was drawn to the possibility of depicting the not-quite-full-moon rising as the setting sun colors the sky. Then came the quote.
I’m looking forward to celebrating the arrival of the new year with the arrival of the full moon.
May we all find the strength to rise up.
And the full quote: Mountains know the secrets we need to learn. That it might take time, it might be hard, but if you just hold on long enough, you will find the strength to rise up. – Tyler Knott Gregson
