About Moondance
Moondance; celebrating creative women
Resembling a nightmarish beast rearing its head from a crimson sea, this monstrous object is actually an innocuous pillar of gas and dust. Called the Cone Nebula (NGC 2264) - so named because, in ground-based images, it has a conical shape - this giant pillar resides in a turbulent star-forming region. ACS made this observation on April 2, 2002. Credit: NASA, H. Ford (JHU), G. Illingworth (USCS/LO), M.Clampin (STScI), G. Hartig (STScI), the ACS Science Team, and ESA

Te Deum by Ivy Peñaredondo
Along with the chicken adobo and rice, I swallow her hardship. I tell her that when Tatay cocks his head, it is as if he is himself again, quick, intelligent and just as conscious of life as he used to be. “Sometimes when Tatay and I talk, moments of clarity shine through his eyes and for that brief moment, he's ok again.”

What's the Buzz? by Patricia Bolten
Positioned with a jar in one hand and a cover in the other, Pat skillfully swiped a bee from the air with his jar and snapped the cover back on the top. He was gifted at his game, as well as graceful, but I wondered how much more difficult it would be when one already had six or seven bees in the jar and attempted an eighth. It was then I realized the object of the game.
