Carry On

I first learned about the effects of the full moon when I worked in a hospital laboratory. It never failed at full moon we'd be busy, requests from the floors would keep us hopping, and the emergency room would be insane. Full moon effects are like a virus: three days coming, three days with you, and three days leaving. And the effect happens at the new moon which is a full moon we can't see.

I've been straining under the full moon for a year now. Maybe even longer. And there's not much to be done except carry on. Put one foot in front of the other and dance as fast as you can.

I can't even remember when I started this journal piece. Fans of Supernatural will recognize the song, Carry On My Wayward Son by Kansas as one of the theme songs used in the show.

What about you? Do you believe in the effect of the full moon?


  1. Not really...I think crazy can come at any time. :)

  2. Absolutely! In my ‘younger’ days I worked as a telephone operator. During the full moon we always got more calls than usual from the whackos! LOL

  3. I'm a believer. I work with 5-8 year olds at church and they get even crazier, I mean energetic, at full moon time.

  4. YES! I do think the moon's pull affects. I didn't know about the 9 day effect that goes on though.
