Time for Thorns

An independent view on life.

Pink Moon tonight?

leave a comment »

Actually,  the moon won’t  be pink,  but is so called because it typically coincides with the flowering of the brightly-colored herb ‘moss pink.’

It’s also known as the Grass Moon and the Egg Moon,  and the naming of full moons served as  time-keeping  markers for many cultures, especially the American Indians,  who knew a great deal more about the world than the colonists.
