Full Wolf Moon
Today is the first full moon of 2010 and the biggest one of the year. It's at its closest point to the Earth. If you live near the ocean, tides will be at their highest for 2 or 3 days. This should make for some great wave watching. These are the days I miss the ocean the most!
Instead I watched it early this morning from my hilltop in Idaho slowly make its way to the west. Called the Full Wolf Moon due to the hungry wolf packs that used to howl at the edge of Indian villages. We heard the coyotes yip down at the creek, remembering the wolves howl up in the mountains on camping trips. Thrilling and scary all at the same time. Very primeval.
I stitched these strips together from scraps this morning and added a very large moon. Will this become part of larger piece or have some bare trees and wolves added? Time will tell.
