Alban Elfed 2015

Someone asked me, "Under what circumstances would you go to see the pope?"

I said, "Not while there's one tree that needs a hug."



A blessed Alban Elfed to you all! Not long ago we had a wonderful Pagan Pride Day in Philadelphia. How very different from the circus that will come to town with Pope Francis! Here is our altar for the Main Ritual:



Beautiful, huh? Everyone in the circle got to Hail their deity of choice. No one even flinched when I said VULTURE. Pagans understand these things.

This is actually the hardest holy day for me. I don't like to bid farewell to the Sun, the bright Sun, that kisses our fields and brings the fruits of the harvest. It's not a good-bye, though, it's a "see you later." The Southern Hemisphere needs to have summer too.

Therefore, on behalf of all the (not so very) bored deities out there, I wish you and all those you love a bountiful and happy Alban Elfed. May Vulture love you, and keep you, and make His wings to fly above you.



Blessed be!

Blessings of the Autumn Equinox to you, Anne. It's very funny -- I chose the same initial graphic as you for my equinox post tomorrow! But hey, yours is a nicer, blinged-up gif . . . so I'm going to steal, I mean, borrow it from you. Many thanks!

Blessed Autumn to you! I love the cooler weather when the sun isn't so strong to keep you inside until dark. I'm going to hang in my hammock and feel the blessings of the day

Bless you cause I can see you're a very beautiful person. When people have a pure soul I think they will be always better even if they are no Christian, Muslims Catholics whatever, the one of that who is evil in his minds.
