Forgotten Magic

Starr Pass, Tucson Arizona
2008

How could they have forgotten? The signs were all there. A full moon rose over the mountain and the canyon was in bloom. It was then they realized how much they needed her. They had always resisted Grandma’s advice. She would have reminded them that the potatoes should be cut on this day.

Could they go on another day or were they simply too late? When they arrived at the canyon mouth, tardy and regretful, they knew why a full-moon was needed for the magic to work. Good luck potatoes could not be planted in the dark.
