Remembering and reminiscing – we miss you, amigo.

And right on time, we've got October's full moon - aka the Hunter's Moon - sometimes called the Blood Moon. Named for hunters who tracked and killed their prey by autumn moonlight, stockpiling food for the winter ahead, not for sport. Full blood tomorrow, Oct. 17th.

Those of us here on the left coast get a partial reprieve in the guise of a partial eclipse. If you're awake Monday morning at 5:00 a.m., you'll see the edge of the Moon dipping into the darkest part of Earth's shadow. Only a little bit of the Moon will be shaded. Subtle, but any eclipse of the blood moon is something to build some folklore - and optimism - around. Perhaps Sofa is haunting those oh so sporty hunters and messing with their bloody moonlight.
