Hasn't this build up to the full moon been fantastic? It has been rising in the southeast as the sun is setting in the west. My drive home from Charlottetown on Wednesday night was awesome as I was watching moonrise and sunset at the same time. It's full moon tonight. Will it bring the wildness out? I worked for several years in a mental institution and truly didn't think that there was a difference in mood and excitability at that time but popular lore says there is. I also worked in bars and didn't see a difference. What is your experience?
Peter Mulvey has a moon song, Whole of the Moon. This is listed as being a live subway recording and is on his album, Rapture. The moon was calling Eleni Mandell too. She has Moon Glow, Lamp Low on her album Miracle of Five. Some other moon songs from the past from: Eryka Badu, Carlos Nunez, The Neville Brothers, Blossom Dearie, and Neko Case.
