Celebrating the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival With Some Chalkboard Art and Moon-Gazing

Our chalkboard in the kitchen reads “Mid-Autumn Moon Festival” with an accompanying full moon.  Interestingly, the Chinese character for fall combines the ‘wheat’ radical and the ‘fire’ radical, which describes the season perfectly, I think.  Throughout the month, I progressively filled in the moon until it was time to go to full-moon Kirtan on Saturday.

Happy Monday everyone!  I hope you got to do some moon-gazing for the Mid-Autumn Festival last night.  It was a bit cloudy in New York, but I could still make out the moon.

So the festival was last night, but as my uncle said, “Tell your sister the moon festival is on Monday, that way you can get 50% off moon cakes.”  It’s like moon cake happy-hour.

Finally, if you are interested in kirtan–yogic call-and-response chanting–and live in New York, the next session will be on Monday, October 15th, at the Integral Yoga Institute.  Hope to see you there!

Did you get to check out the moon and eat moon cakes?
