Time to Occupy Christmas

An usually large, warm, Full Moon was visible and clear in the sky today over Madison, NJ.

According to earthsky.org "the big and bright waning gibbous moon shines directly in front of the constellation Gemini the Twins, the radiant point for the Geminid meteor shower (going on tonight). Gemini’s two brightest stars are Castor and Pollux. They shine quite close to the moon tonight." 

I looked up and down, all around, and inside and out, and though I did not see the Twins of Gemini, suddenly I knew what Time it was.

Time to go home to San Diego for the holidays (on Friday).

Time to leave Occupy Wall Street behind for awhile and focus on other things.

TIME TO OCCUPY CHRISTMAS with family and friends.

"There is a time to every purpose under heaven..." (Ecc. 3)

There's a time to cook and clean and mend.
And there's a time for crying with a friend.
Look around, do you see what time it is?
Put down your pots and pans awhile.


There's a time to do what's proper and polite.
But there's a time to break away and do what's right
Look around, do you see what time it is?
Put down your pots and pans awhile.

Are you bound to mop and broom and stove?
Are you bound to walls that will not move?
You try so hard to please and still you find no peace.
Stop and listen, cause there's another voice a'calling.


There's a time to work without delay.
But there's a time for putting work away
Look around, do you see what time it is?
Put down your pots and pans awhile.
Put down your pots and pans awhile.
