PORCH SENSES: Episode 14

The full moon from last night is still hanging up in the sky this morning. A stark contrast against the cold blue sky. Is it affecting the tides in the oceans right now? Yes. Teachers will tell you it affects the children as well. ALL the teachers tell me this in fact. Is it reasoning to explain a cause? Is it so anticipated that it itself causes behaviors to be off? It is a 30 day cycle so chances are the classroom will have a worse day than normal at some point. I am not a scientist but it is difficult to not believe in this monthly behaviour when all teachers speak of it, schools and daycares. Is it the pull that affects mood and behaviours? It would certainly give some solid ground to horoscopes. They always seem too vague to be believable. Knowledge of the horoscope seems to be the forced reasoning behind mood or behaviour and not realistic cause and effect. Humans have always made up magically reasons for the unexplainable over time. It is the reason we have so many gods. The moon has no idea how much power it welds on the humans.
It does look pretty up in the sky though.

The moon has all but disappeared in the skies to west as the sunshine becomes brighter in the East. The edges of the sphere have become undefined and now streams of clouds are visible across the front of the moon. We wouldn’t know if anything was happening across the backside. The moon knows what it did here and moves on to wreck havoc in other cultures now. It did occur to be that the circle t steeple and moon beside each other looked a lot like a baseball and bat. On top of ALL that, it is Friday the 13th… have a great day!
