I began writing Crystal's story back in 1995 when my children were very small and quite mischievous. And so, as I tended to my children, I tucked Crystal's story away, but never forgot her...she wouldn't let me forget.

For fourteen years, Crystal’s story simmered in my brain and in my heart, while I played with my daughters, gaining a greater appreciation for humanity's struggles and current earth changes. I dreamed of Crystal and Adam, David and Wyndon, Cosmo and Daniel, Claire and Vincent, Madelynn, Gina and all the others.

MoonPrintsToday is the first New Moon of the Astrological New Year. Everyone loves the beauty of the Full Moon, but the New Moon is just as beautiful and twice as powerful, and even though it's hard to see even a sliver of light during a New Moon, its impossible to avoid its profound influence.
