    I have never been across the way
    Seen the desert and the birds
    You cut your hair short
    Like a shush to an insult
    The world had been yelling
    Since the day you were born
    Revolting with anger
    While it smiled like it was cute
    That everything was shit.

    Re: What're you doing for Samhain?

    I ended up doing a "dumb supper". I intended to say things about those close to me who have passed on within the last year but couldn't do that without crying and going off track so I just kept quiet for once in my life! I had quite a few trick-or-treaters, and ran out of candy a few minutes before I was planning to turn the lights off anyway, so that went well.

    Can you hear me, Major Tom? I think I love you.

    Re: What're you doing for Samhain?

    On the 30th did a house cleansing of spirits and energies...opened all the doors and windows, cabinets, drawers etc and did a thorough sage smudge. Then blessed salt sprinkled all over the house, and outside around the foundation.

    Yesterday, put up the ofrenda for Days of the Dead, burned copal incense, put out food and offerings for our dead loved ones. put out their pics or their names on cards if we didn't have a photo. LOTS of candles. We ate all our fave traditional DoD foods, and sat in front of the altar listening to music for a few hours. Will keep candles lit, food on the altar, flowers, incense until mid day on Sun when we say goodbye to our dead loved ones until next year.

    Re: What're you doing for Samhain?

    Because of the witchlets (and the distraction of Halloween), we've started doing Samhain the next day (which would be today)... So, dumb supper tonite!
    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."
    ~~Stephen Jay Gould, Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    The hubster was supposed to have his surgery yesterday, but postponed it for superstition's sake. Instead we went to our new house & I fell over a pipe. Then I fought w/a non-working irrigation system for a few hours. Then we got nekkid & did stuff in the moonlight. Way better than surgery recovery, lol.

    So is rain a trick, or a treat?

    We're due for lots of rain too. Been a bit overly dry this year. This summer will be a bad one if we dont get a decent down pour in the next month.

    Kinda glad I won't be here for it lol, so we wont run outta water at least!

    Re: What're you doing for Samhain?

    I was really sick, so I didn't do anything. I just watched a couple of scary movies and drank some ginger tea. Usually I like to do a bit of divination, but I didn't have the energy for it and I figured my runny nose would be too distracting.
