  7. Ooooh, very nice! Don't you wish you could read the mind of an animal who is howling at the moon? What are they experiencing? Awe, fear, kinship, frustration...?

    1. Hi Silver I often wonder what animals think. I am sure they share many of our human emotions. I once read that wolves tilt their heads upward when howling for acoustic reasons. It carries their voice far into the night. So if you plan to howl your intentions this weekend be sure to tilt your head towards the moon and let the vibrational sound carry your intention towards the heavens.

    2. Hmmmm. Well, if "wolves tilt their heads upward when howling for acoustic reasons," maybe they're not literally howling at (because of) the moon? They might be howling for some other, more practical reason. But the idea of them howling at the moon is so more intriguing, I think.

    3. Hey Silver,

      I too like the idea that they are howling at the moon. The full moon effects humans and animals. So, perhaps during the full moon they howl a bit more or louder.

      Hey, let's keep the werewolf folklore alive and well.

      On a side note, who doesn't like Hugh Jackman as Wolverine?

  8. "howl your intentions" - YES. Oh, that we could do this, like wishes on stars? Why not. Perhaps somewhere deep, we were all raised by wolves. ;)

  9. Let's all howl our intentions - for peace and social justice - at the Women's March on January 19th. Here in Tofino, tomorrow I will be at a march in support of the Wet'Suwet'en people , opposing the fracking gas pipeline that wants to run right through their traditional territory.

  11. Have to howl them out and see what comes about. Be interesting to know what they really want when some animals howl.

    1. I think it is basically to communicate a need and it depends on the pitch. You know I will be howling.
