With the gorgeous full moon that is now high in the sky, it’s time for a new dream board with Jamie Ridler. This March’s full moon is the Worm Moon, which doesn’t sound all that appealing. Jamie does a little unpacking of that term, though, and comes up with the following:
as I discovered that this March moon is when the earth starts to soften and the burrowers of her soil find their way to the surface, I started to change my mind. What if we took our cue from spring and allowed ourselves to soften? What if we let what’s within us find its way to the surface? What tender dreams would be revealed?
Because life has been incredibly hectic…again…which has to change, by the way…I have had to resort to pinterest to create my board.
I noticed that I pinned a great deal of words this time around. Not so many images, which I think is odd. I’m not usually draw to words. But right now I’m thinking about growth. The idea of and the need for growth is stirring in my soul. It’s time to make a move. Not necessarily on from the space I currently occupy but to make some transition. To step up in ways that I haven’t in awhile. To step forward. To grow. To make the move. To mature.
Part of that growth, I think, is that I really, really, really want to write. I’ve been making a stab at it for the last couple of months, but I haven’t been consistent. I need to write. On a regular basis. Whether here or in my writer’s notebook, I need to do it. I can’t let work get in the way of the things that are important to me. Along with the need to write, is a strong need to be with other writers. I miss my writing project friends. Terribly. I miss the work that we did together. I miss the camaraderie. I miss belonging to that community, and I need to find a way to get back to that. I’m not sure how to make that transition. But I feel the stirring of that desire.
There is, of course, the literal stirrings in the soil. My husband and I made a trip to Lowe’s tonight. I only intended to bring home one plant. I just wanted one. Something to make me feel better. But somehow, my sweet husband who told me to just wait, we needed to wait because he didn’t want to leave the plants sitting on the porch for five days, started gathering up slightly sad plants and telling me we needed to bring them home. $27 and six plants later, we were on our way home. I’m never going to say no to plants, and after today and prepping for tomorrow, I could use a ton of plants.
What stirrings do you feel with this full worm moon? What is beginning to come to the surface for you?
