On the evening following an lunar eclipse that was hidden by clouds, we were blessed with mostly clear skies. Our small group of ladies paddled out into a slight breeze. As we sat and floated as the sun set as the current of the water caused us to drift. Then we practiced a walking on water meditation and then gathered back together to share things we were thankful for while sharing a snack on the water. We meditated on what it meant to “Release the Petals”.  As we waited for the moon to rise over the horizon, we floated, and released what didn’t serve us by tossing rose petals into the air. The sky grew dark, and we waited patiently for the moon to rise. And she did, in a bright pinkish orange.
