Harvest Moon Honey

Duran Duran sing about a New Moon on Monday, but today’s week opener involves a Full Moon. Tonight, she will be whole and aglow with harvest offerings, as today is the Harvest Moon.

I’ve always thought the Harvest Moon to rise later than September, so I’m always surprised when she rolls around. At this time, I feel drowsy; my mind bobs in a milky fennel, cardamom, and rooibos mist. I ponder over recipes for milk cake and sweet-bean, custard, and pandan Mooncakes: the mid-Autumn festival arrives tomorrow. These are all words that I enjoy hearing and saying.

Harvest Moon blessings to you all.
