Welcome to "The Gods Are Bored," Lughnasadh Edition 2014. It is a time of reflection.
Pagan practice centers upon the ancient cycle of planting and harvesting followed by our ancestors. But I have always felt that the Wheel is also a metaphor for our lives, both on a year-to-year basis and on a lifetime basis. This Lughnasadh I am thinking about the fact that my life is probably two-thirds over, and my First Harvest is bearing fruit.
My daughters are grown into level-headed young women. They are my most precious fruits.
My husband still loves me. Can you imagine tolerating my antics for 35 years? Hats off to the guy.
This blog is a nice fruit. It's been a good place to kick up my heels, laugh, and let off steam.
Blessed First Harvest to you, reader. Dip into the John Barleycorn for me.
