Touch the Moon

The Heavens were spectacular last night. The Moon stole the show! She stepped out in front of the black velvet curtain, sang her silent song of adoration and basked in the glory of the ovation offered by the stars. I watched in awe.  Then closed my eyes and looked for that Sister Moon within, the one who travels my inner-verse, spinning, waxing and waning. I began to move my hands across the white page in hopes of catching some glimpse of her story.  My hands did not betray me. They let what was within pour forth.


At the beginning of 2011, I took on the study of Touch Drawing, an expressive art practice developed my Deborah Koff-Chapin (Note: Deborah has a Touch Drawing community you might enjoy checking out.)

More recently, I matched it with my love of watching the Moon and honoring her rhythms and presence. Here are a few of the images from my full Moon Touch Drawing session.  I will be sharing this as a moonthly spiritual practice.  The drawings are raw for the most part, although a few have been treated to a bit of mixed media lovin’. They are about image, story, process, practice…..and about healing. I hope you enjoy them.

Do you have a practice that is important to you?  How does the moon play a role in your life?  I would love to hear…drop me a few lines in the comments!
