We discovered that we can see summer sunsets from the roof of our house. So lately we’ve been climbing up with our picnic basket full of the basics for a Parian aperitif which means, in brief, ouzo and meze (μεζέ). A meze is a snack served with alcohol generally consisting of olives,tomato and cucumber. Eating food when drinking is always a good idea as it helps you absorb the alcohol.
Last night we had a special treat – after the sunset, the rise of the full moon. Spettacolare! A kind of yin-yang experience.
Full moons release a lot of energy and can affect us in various ways. “Lunatic” comes from the word luna meaning moon so maybe that’s why werewolves come out when the moon is full.
The first calendars were based on moon and not sun cycles. There is a synchronous relationship between menstrual regularity and lunar rhythms thus creating a natural bond between women and the moon. Both are capable of waxing and waning.
