Life is going to be very interesting around here over the next few weeks. But remember that the Chinese curse is this: "May you live in interesting times."
Ever notice how we try to lull ourselves into a sense of peace?
I don't count praise and worship of the bored gods as lulling us into a sense of peace. Proper deities challenge you to confront the social ills around you, to guard the planet and do right by those who want to harm you.
We at "The Gods Are Bored" applaud those of you who confront the world head-on and hold your banner high. You go.
It's just that, right at this particular moment, we at "The Gods Are Bored" need some lulling. Therefore it has been hard for me not to drop everything I ought to be doing to go ogle the many fabulous pictures of the May Day Fairie Festival at Spoutwood Farm, now pouring into the Spoutwood site.
When everything is topsy-turvy, it's really tempting to sit for hours and watch a slide show of beautiful people, dancing in the sunshine. Beautiful children with big smiles and face paint. Performers. Faerie houses. Some crazy muddy guy with a gorgeous dog. Men in kilts. Tattoos. Dancers and drummers.
I'm going to let the world go on without me while I watch Fairie Festival photos. Tra lull lull.
