Full Moon Puja, Anniversay Prayers

W14 5 14 ANNIVERSARY1 1Mitchel and I met, had our first date, and married within a week in May, with a few years between meeting and wedding.  We celebrate it as a weekly event.

On the full moon this year Mitchell and I went on walkabout to find a perfect outdoor place to do a ritual in gratitude, and to set intention for another wonderful year together; we had a small kit to do a fire puja.

We to the coast, and the trip is offering topics, not all of them uplifting, to write about on zenkatwrites.  This post, however, is to show my journal entries of that wonderful day with my beloved.

The drive out we took High way 30, a drive through small beach, riverfront and old logging or caning towns.  May is glorious in that it usually is not hot (it was this year) and the wildflowers are in full blossom.

We could find no place that would allow us to have even the small fire of our puja, and so, we did a water puja on that very hot day.
