International Observe the Moon Night will be “observed” on Saturday.   The event started about four years ago and is aimed at increasing “the sense of wonderment and curiosity” about “our nearest neighbor, the moon,” according to the event website,www.observethemoonnight.org.

International Observe the Moon Night is sponsored by scientific organizations including the Astronomical Society of the Pacific, which bills itself as the “largest general astronomy society in the world, with members in over 70 nations.”

The website lists a host of professional and amateur moon gazers who are prepared to look up Saturday, from the Seattle Astronomical Society to the South Florida Amateur Astronomical Association.

I was born in Croatia, at that time Yugoslavia. My family moved to the US when I was very young, but I still treasure the memories of my grandfather teaching me how to protect myself against the "evil eye," my grandmother shopping early every morning, at the open air market, to buy the freshest vegetables for the day's meals, and the traditions that were the underpinnings of our society. Someone once noted that "For all of us that want to move forward, there are a very few that want to keep the old methods of production, traditions and crafts alive." I am a fellow traveler with those who value the old traditions and folk wisdom. I believe the knowledge they possess can contribute significantly to our efforts to build a more sustainable world; one that values the individual over the corporation, conservation over growth and happiness over wealth.
