wolf moonJanuary 26, 2013 marks the night of the "Wolf Moon" and it will be the biggest and brightest of 2013, sure to impress all of its viewers.

This year, Mars supersizes the view making the moon appear 30% brighter and over 14% larger than other moons. Once ever 29.5 days, the moon makes a trip around Earth. But, its orbit is not a perfect circle, but more "elliptical".  According to NASA, "It will appear about 14 percent bigger in our sky and 30 percent brighter than some other full moons during 2009."

We want our Eastern Pack and Pride members to know we’re thinking of them during this tragedy. While we mostly feel helpless over here in the States, there are many things we can do to help:

  • That old cell phone you left in a drawer when you upgraded to the "next best thing" could become a life line for a volunteer pulling a survivor from rubble.
  • If you're physically challenged, help out online with some of the networks seeking to find loved ones and pets that were lost in the chaos.
  • Fostering an animal here in the States could save the life of an animal overseas. Volunteer to help train an animal for Search and Rescue, or to be an Assistance dog.

Adam and Eve said, 'Lord, when we were in the garden, you walked with us every day. Now we do not see you any more. We are lonesome here, and it is difficult for us to remember how much you love us.' And God said, 'I will create a companion for you that will be with you and who will be a reflection of my love for you, so that you will love me even when you cannot see me. Regardless of how selfish or childish or unlovable you may be, this new companion will accept you as you are and will love you as I do, in spite of yourselves.'

And God created a new animal to be a companion for Adam and Eve.
And it was a good animal.

And God was pleased...

And the new animal was pleased to be with Adam and Eve and he wagged his tail.

This is a touching video about a soldier returning home from Afghanistan. It reminds me of Odyseus returning home after 20 years and the only one who recognizes him is his faithful dog...

People seem to worry about me a lot. Not for all the normal reasons, like “Am I getting enough to eat?” or “Do I need more sleep?”  No – their main concern is that I work in an isolated environment, namely – my home office.  And I write...

All day long, I write.  My tools consist of computers and dictionaries and pens. My wardrobe has morphed from blazers, dress pants and heels to shorts, tank tops and flip-flops (Arizona is HOT all year long and I mean ALL year long).  My work lunches have gone from pasta at a five-star restaurant to a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

These things don’t really concern people, though. It’s my coworkers that concern them.

You see, I share my home office with 18 cats, three dogs and 3 tanks of fish.  Oh, and a turtle.  (The turtle has been in hibernation for the last 5 months, so he often escapes my mind.  He’s the best pet…)

My loved ones believe that I am too isolated, and that sharing my home office with my pets could eventually create, shall we say, an “alternate reality” for me.  To put it more frankly, they are afraid I will go insane if I continue in this manner.
