A Full Strawberry Moon on the summer solstice evening shines over the house. (Photo by A. Keith Carreiro, June 2016.)
At the beginning of this year, I made a wish list in scheduling a launch date for the Penitent – Part One. I gave an approximate time of April/May as the target date in doing so.
One of them is pictured in the lead photo to this blog. The moon that is in the photos pictured here in this posting is called a Full Strawberry Moon, which is also the name for the full June moon. It is also called the Mead Moon.
The next one will occur in 2094.
The moon I saw in this narrative provided an eldritch, yet radiant and vivid light to everything around Pall. The forest, the farmland and the action occurring in and around the farmstead where he had been earlier were soaked, drenched, in this light. It is in this light, as well as in the competing darkness, that the tension in the story is tightened even more gradually as the story continues to unfold.
I don’t want to wait another month, or another Full Thunder, or Full Hay, Moon, to do so . . .
