Episode 35- March 20, 2015

Eggs are a univsersal symbol of fertility, hope and life.  Host Jennifer Ellsworth explores this humble food as we celebrate Spring and the New Egg Moon.  She also reads "Moving Day," a story about a man with million dollar songs and not much to show for it.  

"...Now that the snow was retreating, the dead soldiers were starting to appear.  Probably three dollars in Busch Lite, Old Milwaukie and Schlitz cans, and another 45 cents in whiskey bottles.  They’d been bagged up once, but good intentions only go so far, and the bag never made it to the bed of Brother Dwayne’s pickup, or the back of Nephew Rocy’s Subaru, or out of the plow’s path...." 

Moon Astrology: New Egg Moon is Aries.  Let Spring Begin!

Mankind's first food, fertility magic and a 60,000 year old Ostrich egg.

March 5, 2015- Episode 34

Busy, busy, busy.  Calendars date back tens of thousands of years.  Host Jennifer Ellsworth discusses the moon's role in Muslim, Jewish and Chinese calendars.  She also reads a story about Wanda, and this new nurse's first day on the job.  

"I was twenty-two when I met the doctor in the lobby at the County Hospital.  He’s not very attractive, and he wasn’t then either.  I didn’t know it at the time, but he’s part Indian.  His grandmother was a full-blooded Wabanaki and they’re short, dark people.  If we were ever standing toe-to-toe I’d be able to kiss his eyebrows.  To be fair, I’m not delicate.  In my younger days I could work the hay crew just about steady with most men, and complain a lot less..."  

Moon Astrology:  Full Sap Moon in Virgo: God is in the details.  

Halaqims, yin wooden sheep and clouds delaying the month's beginning.
