Remembering where I came from

I published my first post on Auntie Moon on February 28, 2009. I knew I wanted to write about living daily with the Moon and the extraordinary lunar influence on everything. I didn’t know where to start, so I decided to publish a youtube video of one of my favorite songs ever ~ Cat Steven’s Moonshadow.

So much has happened since publishing that post. This morning, I got the news that this blog has been viewed a million times. It may not be a big deal for some, but it’s a major milestone for me.

I would never have published that first post had it not been for the encouragement I received from my dear friend and mentor, Donna Cunningham, aka Moon Maven. Donna passed from this life in July and is most assuredly working on her next already. I wish I could share this news with her. (It would probably have spared you from having to hear about it.)

To mark the milestone, I want to share that Moonshadow video with you again today and, in memoriam, to give a public thank you  to one of the most amazing and generous women I’ve ever known.










  1. Congratulations!!! That is a huge deal!! HUGE!! EPIC! No easy feast and certainly lots of hard work and dedication. I am so sorry about the loss of your good friend. I am sure she is proud of you from the other side and is helping you succeed in her own way every day. Those kinds of friendships never die. Cheers to you and everything you do to help us and enjoy your own journey. Big hugs, Lisa 🙂

  2. Congratulations on your Million views. I say that’s a milestone to be celebrated. What better way to do it than with a mention of your mentor, Donna Cunningham. Although I didn’t know her personally, her books and blog clearly demonstrated her brilliance and her caring nature.

  3. Congratulations on your 1 million views! Definitely not a small milestone. Besides, celebrate whatever milestones you reach, my friend. I all but celebrate a good cup of tea. 😉

    Sorry for your loss. It’s so difficult to lose someone that was such an inspiration in your life, but clearly her mark was made and her legacy honored. Your comment about Donna “most assuredly working on her next (life) already” made me smile. I’ve been blessed to have someone like that in my life, and I too feel her tenacity was in no way hampered by death. There’s simply no way she’d stand for it! =P Some people truly have an extra little sparkle.

    Congratulations once again! Blessings! ♥
