I didn’t see much of the Fall in Maine this year because I’ve been seeing so much else of the country, but my friend Peter sent this image of last month's Hunter Moon to bring me a little bit of home. Headed that direction myself in the morning. Going to take the night off and rest up. I’ll see you tomorrow.
Home misses you, dear friend, but you are out there on a noble mission, one that history will not forget. You are Making history......
Love that moon! Rest well, Heather. You are balm to troubled spirits, and sanity in a mad world.
Thank you for all the events you did in the SF Bay Area! Rest up in your beloved Maine. And Happy Thanksgiving to us all.
Beautiful photo! Thank you. I am transporting myself right now to that lone sailboat. Rest well Heather. I just finished your book. You are a beacon for democracy.
Spectacular photo! Almost like a baby’s blanket...
Safe travels, Heather.
Goodnight. Rest up and have wonderful thanksgiving week. Let’s all hope for the long pause that allows a good number of hostages to come home and the badly needed relief into Gaza. If that happens we all can have a much needed sigh of relief on Thanksgiving. ❤️
What an unexpected picture. My mind was filled with Trump and Gaza, then along comes this other-worldly dream; the melting pink Hunter Moon above mounds of trees and streams of quiet water. Thank you Heather Cox Richardson and Peter Ralston for taking our minds elsewhere.
What a breathtaking image! It makes my night. Who knew the moon could look like a setting — or rising — sun.
Buddy and Peter's photos are always a welcome break, a reminder that madness in the world is no match for the beauty of nature.
That’s beautiful! Good rest tonight and safe and easy travels tomorrow. Thank you for all you do.
Those who love you want you home, rested, and well.
This Thanksgiving, HCR will be near the top of my gratitude list.
I’ve never heard of a Hunter’s Moon! Beautiful. Someone needs to write a book on where all these sayings and names came from.
Good morning, Professor Richardson:
I caught one of your appearances, via a recording, and was buoyed by it, by the intensity of your scholarship and your dedication to our experiment with Democracy.
Thank you – for all of it.
Kommen Sie gut nach Hause
Beautiful images always. Teach our children to observe and appreciate changes, night and day, seasons, growing up. Life. Everyone in the world sees the same moon, the same sun. We share this planet. We need each other. This sweet verse is a reminder for the young and the young at heart: “The moon on the one hand, the sun on the other: the moon is my sister, the sun is my brother. My brother good morning, my sister good night. “ Sweet dreams.
Beautiful photo. Nature can be so calming. Outside - one of my favorite places to be ❤️
It is still a mystery to me if on Nov. 7th at Book Passages in Corte Madera, north of San Francisco, the staff gave you or your agent my information below? Maybe it is in your high to-do stack, which is fine, but I am concerned it ended up in the trash like it seems so many of my communications to experts.
So, did you get the $100 check with some of my 40-year replies from the government on the 1979 H.R. 2206 bill "The National Service Act," which called for a youth wake-up call in every zip code encouraging civic values & education talks, locally nationwide between their 17th and 18th birthdays?
It also required 18th birthday essential feedback on considering civic voluntarism with local non-profits or contracted full-time community or military service by replying yes, no, or maybe later.
It proposed using all-youth rather than male-only draft registration "ONLY" as a catalyst, inflection point for more positive civic awareness, the benefits of sweat-equity in making their communities a better place to live, and national service to help keep the USA a strong participating democracy to its citizens and the world.
I hope you cash the check and offer me a few pages of feedback on a lonely Vietnam-era veteran's dream for a better USA.
I am confused as to why there seems to be 100% apathy and indifference to any formal discussion on the implications of this Federal policy that the U.S. Congress would have to vote on to make it a reality for both improved domestic and national security for 2025 onward.
You love beauty and truth, dear Heather. And you're quite good at sniffing out both. I think it's because you love life, too. All best, Larry Kinney
