Pat Shingleton: "THE Honeymoon..."
Moonrise tonight will be at 5:20 pm. This full moon was referenced by Native Americans as the "Full Beaver Moon." "Honeymoon" dates back to the 1500s when newlyweds enjoyed the fullness of the period, after their marriage. Once settled, it was presumed that the experience would "wane," similar to a waning moon. Four years ago Erika Svanstrom and her husband, Stefan, experienced an unusual honeymoon, including six natural disasters that began with a major snowstorm in Munich. In Cairns, Australia they experienced a cyclone with flooding in Brisbane. In New Zealand a magnitude 6.3 earthquake struck. Their next stop was Tokyo and another earthquake and tsunami followed by a monsoon in Bali. The Svanstrom's have been in therapy ever since.
