“Wolf Moon” I as Virgo, hunger and howl ‘entre le chien et le loup’

The fifth in my Full Moon series. A Canadian friend of mine recently introduced me to a new french term for twilight: entre le chien et le loup. The literal translation is between the dog and the wolf. It’s such a perfect poetic expression!

My moon series is progressing as I contemplate my own struggles with returning to a regular sleep pattern. With each piece, the caption embodies aspects of my battles with sleeplessness. Here in the desert we don’t have wolves but we do have plenty of coyotes who call to each other at twilight, and later in the night too. There is nothing more comforting to me to hear them and imagining them running free in an alternate universe right outside my window …..
