Baby lizards, woodpeckers, and moon lessons...

Very nice Full Pisces Moon this past Monday.  The cloud patterns around the moon were picture perfect... only my I have no idea how to get my camera set to capture the image.  Here the Old Hippie is getting schooled on Lunar surface features.  Tadpole has absorbed every word of a book on the planets that I found for him at Goodwill and readily shares his knowledge on the subject... 

Isn't he cute?  This is just one of dozens of these little guys that scattered out from under the Rose of Sharon.    I imagine a few will be breakfast for the birds.  Tiny frogs seem to be everywhere you look, too....

 I snapped this picture through my kitchen window.  There were two Red-Headed Woodpeckers on the suet log feeder - the reason I ran for the camera - but I wasn't quick enough.  If anyone goes outside in the morning, one of them will perch itself on top of the power line pole and chatter away.  There are also Red-Bellied Woodpeckers and Downy Woodpeckers that eat from the feeder each day.

Have you ever thought to yourself, "What would the Honey Badger do?"

Honey Badger don't care.... Honey Badger don't give a shit.  If you have had the good fortune to have already been introduced to the Honey Badger, 'nuf said.  If you have not, well let me do the honors......

Bastards getting you down?  Channel the Honey Badger.  I read somewhere that each individual is accompanied in this life by nine animal spirits or totems to guide them through life and protect them.  I don't know about that, but occasionally drawing on and projecting the attitude and essence of the Honey Badger is abundantly helpful.  Caution:  Use wisely and sparingly to avoid someone hurling household objects at your head....

Symbology of the Honey Badger: fearlessness, personal power, 
overcoming all obstacles, forward movement.
A favorite animal to work with for a good many people going through a rough time is the honey badger. And, don't let its sweet sounding name fool you, as the honey badger is downright fearless and will give those working with it the energy to move on in whatever direction is needed, even if that direction is difficult. Honey badgers have the remarkable energetic capability to remove fear from your path. Once fear is removed the strength it takes to overcome obstacles is more easily found.
 Whenever feeling less empowered or wallowing in pity, or stressed out by the all the crap that whirls around in the world, call on the energy of the honey badger. The honey badger will take on an enemy like a poisonous snake even knowing that it will get bitten. Research shows that venom will temporarily slow it down, but once revived…it will track down the snake, kill it, and then eat the snake’s prey. Now that’s what I call a power animal! The honey badger owns its space and accepts its personal power.
The honey badger shows us by example to be relentless and to attack problems or obstacles head on, even when it means going against the norm. Relentless forward movement can mean success even when temporary setbacks occur. (from Jennifer Adele at
Ever needed to own your inner Honey Badger?

Happy Honey Badger meditations to all.......

When you've made your plans and they've gone awry
When you've tried your best and there's no more try
When you've failed yourself and you don't know why,
I'm jumping back in, ready or not, so please be patient with me while I dust off and oil the rusty.  I'm not quite ready to share the details of what has kept me away, but maybe bits and pieces will surface here and there.  Soooo....  I'm just planning to jump back in, pick up where I left off some eleven months ago......
Peace, Love, and Happiness

Old Hippie
& Tadpole, too......
