9 words for February 9

Feb 9, 2020. Sunrise 7:05 AM.
Berkeley, CA.

About three minutes before sunrise, I walked out on the second-floor balcony, and the first thing I saw was the full moon in the west. Irresistible to photograph! The wind was very strong, so I decided to use slo-mo video as the sun rose. I forgot that the audio would be slowed down, too, so the ceramic bell I was ringing sounds like a drum!

- Wendy Reid
This is an amazing video- Real time sunset from Wendy and her daughter Ariel. Starting with the glowing sky just as the sun it about to set through the log drain of color from the world to darkness. Accompanied by bell ringing until the final moments. Then into the quiet, dark evening- another light appears (wait for it)!

A new decade dawns. Yawns.
Honor pause.
Ten years, twenty years... would I have thought about now?
I did.

Celebrating fellow artists. So many!
Take stock of the Light.
Respect the rain.
My home country burns.
Cry. Tears. Memory.
Rain. Ringing.

Gratitude and Fun

January 16, 2020. Sunset 5:40 PM.
Cincinnati, OH.

I brought bells to share with folks at The Hive happy hour Cincinnati. The Hive is an intentional community and offers workshops in mindfulness, creativity, body work. This is a new community for me but I invited them to mark the sunset with me, and everyone was so into it! It brought me so much joy and a feeling of belonging. (if Sonya gives permission) Afterwards Sonya Verma who I had just met, shared with me and later the group, her daily practice around the sunset and sunrise. Sharing and marking the sunset as a group, brought us together in a deeper way. There was a lot of willingness, gratitude and fun.

Here we are

January 11, 2020. Sunrise 7:24 AM.
Oakland, CA.

An infusion—
The perfect fade in.
Coming up from underneath and greeting each cell individually.
Hello. Peace be with you.
An invitation to come alive. To light the love lights. One by one.
A ground that manifests without orientation. Can’t place it or hold it down or reach it.
Trickling without drops.
Changing without changes.
Here we are.

Wolf Moon Sets

January 10, 2020. Sunrise 7:24 AM.
Berkeley, CA.

Wolf Moon Sets, Sun Rises

Wolf presides, dipping down
Having leaped up & over this atom of sky
I stand gazing.

Ever so, Sun climbs
Dousing night & crows wing towards
Arising day.

Greeting moon I howl.
Greeting crows I caw.
Ringing bells, I greet Sun
Bearing us, our day.
--Evangel King

Full Moon Sunrise

January 10, 2020. Sunrise.
El Cerrito, CA.

My first full moon sunrise recording. It has a tiny bit of post production (I doubled and staggered the track to create a continuous vocal drone). This recording was made in a eucalyptus grove on top of a hill in El Cerrito, CA on 1/10/20 at 7:24-7:26 am PST. I'm unsure how else to share this at the moment, so if you have any bright ideas, feel free to download it, and do what you will with it :)

I thought it would be random words

January 10, 2020. Berkeley, CA.

I rang in the 7:24 am sunrise today. I took out my favorite temple bell from Japan and set it up in the garden. Here’s what I did:

1. Beginning at 7:22, I struck the large bell 10 times and rang a small bell. I took a video for part of it. (Sorry the beginning is a little shaky) I didn’t do 2 minutes of video because I thought it would be too large to send to you.

2. Then did a 1 minute recording on voice memos app.

3. I wrote down 10 words that came to me. (Beforehand, I thought it would be random words - maybe next time!).
Redwood tree
Misty breath
Saturated ground
Crumpled leaves
Clear sky

4. Took some photos in the garden

I’ll send the recording & photos from my phone. The 10 is for the date. Next month it’ll be 8. I like keeping track of the full moon day -uposatha practice in Buddhism.

I was kind of busy - haha! Maybe next time will be more contemplative!

The Latest Sunrise

January 10, 2020. San Francisco, CA.

Today is the last day of the latest sunrise. We have been stuck with the same sunrise time ever since the beginning of this year and have held steady ever since. The days have grown longer only because the sunset has drifted later each evening. So, Hallelujah for tomorrow because of the earlier sunrise, the day will expand from both ends! Yay we are on our way into the light. (At least as far as the length of the days go).
