White Magic

Luna…she is the most loyal of companions.

Physically visited only by a dozen in her lifetime, yet all living (past and present) on earth know her. We see her appear, strong and steadfast, consistent and unwavering, night after night…. she comes to us.

She arrives in many versions; always changing, day by day. Never the same as she was yesterday or who she will become tomorrow. Whether just a sliver of her greater self, or so full her light bursts upon every being across Mother Earth’s surface… no matter her shape, we all find comfort in her arrival.

Luna… a great mirror of our human nature, our greatest comrade when the lights of the world shut off and we lay awake in our mind’s wanderings.

Bright white in appearance after Sun’s falling,  yet below what our eyes can’t see… it is here where her darkness resides… her creases and craters of imperfections. It’s these same impurities and hues of darker matter that enable her to shine light on us all, day after day. She teaches us the necessity for balance and grace, of time and patience.   She is an ear to the lonesome, a hand to the wandering, a rock to the restless, a fire for the imaginative…. drink up the moon, walk hand in hand, cup her with your palms and create life’s white magic by her side.

  1. such a lovely ode to the moon…my favorite phase is when the it’s at it’s fullest bathing the land in its silvery shimmering light….it’s simply magical to go for a night hike under its enchanting luminescent glow!

    The Weaver Of Words…..give me 15 words and I’ll tell you a tale

  2. Beautiful concept and photos, but as someone already said on Pinterest, it is questionable to put someone in front of a teepee with the term “White Magic,” especially considering past and even present interactions between white people and Native Americans.

  3. Bonnie,
    1) It’s Taegan
    And 2) I’m not sure if you’re telling me to get over it. If so, please do not tell me what to feel.

    Thanks.

  4. Showing an interest in a culture, and standing in front of something like a tepee is not disrespectful. Just the opposite, in fact. She is not mocking or destroying them. All I see in this post is admiration for the culture. And that is something to be proud and happy about.

  5. And let us point out that white magic is a type of magic, and i’m sure they mean more with the title than just that she is a “white” girl
