Two Attempts...

Two Attempts:
1) To Understand the Culmination of the Moon, and
2) To Get Through this Cold Dark Winter

This is more a single piece of 14 parts than a series.  The night sky or the darkness of the whort winter day is the "shodo" here and lets in more page, or light, as the drawings move from Winter Solstice to Spring Equinox.  Over this "backdrop" I've tried to lay out the "Culmination" of the Moon: its highest point on that night.  I still don't really understand it, but it helped with the winder...
