elsbeth & the blue moon
today is a blue moon because it is the second full moon in december.
today i heard on the radio about a 70 year old woman named elsbeth.
she has lived outside all month in cold england in a little shack.
she didnt want to go indoors from full moon to full moon.
she has a little fireplace and an alter in her shack.
she makes beads and wears them around her neck.
every night for the first 2 weeks, she would go outside
in the pitch black and plant a bead somewhere in the earth.
after the 14 days had passed, she began to search for the beads
in the ground. night after night. digging and looking.
finding new places of blackness in the night and
little white beads as the moon was waxing.
tomorrow she will go back inside the house ♥
i found the BBC iplayer with the whole program!
if you are in in the UK you can listen *here*
(i wish the interviewer had been more into it..
i think we would have heard much more)
picture: we ♥ it
