The contradiction of 12 months and 13 moons highlights the fundamental disconnect of life outside the rhythyms of the universe. These illustrations reflect the natural flow of life in the Appalachian foothills, from the gathering of crows in September with hawks to the stormy weather of July. These are the moons in the calendar along with some of my earlier versions.
