January New Moon
January comes out of darkness, the new year bringing new promise, new hope and new adventures.
Cold has taken hold of the land at this time but...Mother Nature is working away behind the scenes and I have already noticed the evenings becoming lighter slightly earlier than before.
We always refer to the earth as sleeping at this time but there is magic underfoot...
