About this deal

Originally a newsletter series, the Moon Lists brings together strangers from across the globe each sharing a response to a series of personal questions and prompts. I personally use a favorite pen, set aside a time to do it each month, and literally schedule it into my day like I would an appointment. Maybe you develop your own ritual surrounding self-reflection (lighting a candle or a stick of special incense). Journaling can synthesize our idea of who we appear to be and who we actually are, serving as a hinge between our abstract ideas of personhood versus the tangible details of our days. And while that seems like maybe a parent’s cliched nightmare-ish combo, today my work for Moon Lists and also for my studio LUCCA (aka my “real” job) touches on all these things.

The Moon Lists by Leigh Patterson is a workbook filled with questions, list-making ideas, and prompts for taking inventory of the self; One step in a direction of exploring parts of the mind + present tense that are new, unknown, and full of possibility. We are so excited to welcome our founder and director Olivia Crighton as a practitioner in the therapy room, where she will be offering a variety of healing services. Appropriately for summer, Cancer is a water sign ruled by the moon, both of which symbolize Cancer’s tendency towards changeable moods and their deep connection with the rhythms of the world. Self-care is the ability to detach from my autopilot mode and production-driven monkey mind: maybe that comes through in a walk or a bath or a nice tea moment.Some of the things I collect are tangible and mount into piles of many layers and when the time comes to use those saved images I dig like an archaeologist and sometimes find what I want and sometimes don’t. A set of evolving monthly writing prompts and suggestions for physical activities can be completed individually or with a partner, and will offer readers some perspective on the present and their recent past. These questions, prompts, and lists are an exercise in drawing the connection between memory and experience, a reminder that daily choices matter, habits are defining, and objects can hold layers of significance. I realized the evolving sets of monthly prompts could be templates to be shared and exchanged with others.

If you can see a thing more as a whole you can better understand it or see that it’s beautiful, or necessary, or stupid. with a generous glimpse into the questions on his own personal Moon Lists, which were a set of questions they used to guide conversations and stay anchored in time and place every month. We spoke with Leigh about the inspiration behind this project and the importance of making time for deep and unexpected modes of thinking.I realized recently that the narrative I was telling others in casual conversation needed adjusting.
