Aparently tonight’s full moon is called – who knows where?- a worm moon. It’s also a super moon, which is to say it’s very close to the earth and so appears very large. Possibly it’s a worm moon because this is the time of year when the worms come up from their hidey holes deep in the earth and make their presence felt on the surface. But today there wasn’t much time for gardening or anything else because both Madame and me were at the local hospital – Madame overnight and me for some tests – neither of us needing overmuch concern.
So things to be grateful for today:
- It’s the spring equinox.
- We love the NHS and feel very cared for.
- We love our bus passes and the wonderful bus service here.
- People are so much bigger, better, kinder than we’re led to imagine by the media.
- The trees are in bud.
- As I walked home tonight from the bus stop the moon was peeping through the clouds and it was very beautiful.
- The word ‘orthodox’ is rooted in the idea of ‘right glory’ and not ‘right belief’.
- Tomorrow the Potwell Inn will be functioning on a full staff – even if we’re a bit creaky.
