Artist Leonid Tishkov, who is also a Moscow physician, created the project  Private Moon. Through a series of photographs from around the world, he features himself with a large glowing crescent as a visual poem about man who met the Moon and stayed with her for the rest of his life. In Russia the significance of the space efforts reflected communistic ideals. Here we have a mindful artist communicating that the moon in a sense can be a private utopia to anyone. Be swept away by the beauty and stillness, the loyalty and dedication, the tale and the treasure.

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
