Porte Photos’ Daily Quote: January 7, 2023

Tell me what you feel in your room
when the full moon is shining in upon you
and your lamp is dying out,
and I will tell you how old you are,
and I shall know if you are happy.

~ Henri Frederic Amiel
Swiss – Philosopher September 27, 1821 – May 11, 1881

Porte Ponderings:

The first Full mOOn of 2023, the Wolf Moon rose up on the Epiphany (6th of January, the celebration of the baptism of Jesus)

Full moons with all of their wonder, tales and tides. Tales of creatures only appearing on full moons, or only seen during a full moon. Tides at their highest and majical happenings. Seasons changing and wolves howling. Full moons mark the passage of time.

Art imitates life was seen as being so true this week as on the Epiphany in Tarpon Springs, Florida, young Greek Orthodox men gather to dive into the waters to retreive a sacred cross for blessings for the next year. In Nora Roberts trilogy Dragon Heart Legacy, young people dive into the waters to retrieve a sacred sword and become the leader (taoiseich). I’m certain these parallels were drawn on by the author as age old mythology relies on the finding of a sacred object in the waters.
