Last Wednesday night, as I turned off the bedside light to go off to sleep, our bedroom was flooded with the silvery light of the moon filtering through the open blinds.
One of my favourite things to do is to lie in bed and look out at the night sky, especially around the time of the new moon. As I lay there, feeling quite happy and content, I was reminded of a wise woman story that I have often told around the time of the full moon.
When I sat down to write this week's post, I realized that I haven't told you a wise woman tale for quite a long time now. So, this week, for your reading or listening pleasure (you decide) is my "cobbled together from different sources" version of an old Hawaiian tale, The Old Woman in the Moon.

P.S. In the mood for a good chuckle? Another recorded story you might enjoy is "Mary Sue's Goin' on a Diet". It's a tale I tell only in January and was the recorded story for January 2010.
Have a wonderful week,
