I remember one day sitting on the bus, still in middle school and one of the last stops I would sit up at the front and talk to the bus driver, and she with her southern drawl said "I don't normally believe any of that new age stuff, but I've been a bus driver for 25 years and the kids are always crazier on the full moon." And ever since I've paid attention the subtle effect the phases of the moon have on our emotional state, and where we are.
And working in 28 day cycles is such a nice way to chart growth, and regularly check in with yourself. On the new moon you set intentions, turn inward, and take care of yourself and as the moon waxes into full you can feel those coming into light and fullness, then the moon wanes and you begin the process of turning inward, and then again, in waves, in cycles.
So, with that, and my own deep connection to the moon - it felt right to make this a resource for others. I illustrated a calendar with heavy inspiration from Tove Jansson, and then set to the task of drawing 366 little moons - kind of meditative - also 2016 is a leap year - hey.
