supermoonwpTonight the sky was clear and yesterday’s supermoon reappeared in full glory – the earth, moon, and sun are all in a line, creating a syzygy. I had never heard this term before my student Ryan Bromley brought a composition to the electronic ensemble entitled Syzygy. The piece was a success and my husband liked it so much that he recorded it with Ryan for his Tribute CD.

In celebration of autumn color and inspired by the work of nature artist Andy Goldsworthy, I assembled an ephemeral piece of leaf and flower. redleafmandala1

  1. You’re overflowing with inspiration – abundance is good! Goldsworthy – and all those working in the tradition of ephemeral outdoor sculpture – have always been favorites of mine. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, Lynn.

  2. How lovely to see these garden photos, Lynn, and the music was just wonderful, too. I LOVE the leaf art. I do that, too: isn’t it glorious to use what’s here and gather it together in ways that please? Thank you for a lovely post!
