Happy Lammas!

Just updated to the latest rev of WordPress (3.6).  Trying out the lovely new theme which I felt had a bit of a fall feel to it.

Hope everyone has a blessed harvest!


Arrgghhh, Talk Like a Pirate, matey!!

Your pirate name is:

      Dread Pirate  Kidd

Like the famous Dread Pirate Roberts, you have a keen head for how to make a profit. Even though you’re not always the traditional swaggering gallant, your steadiness and planning make you a fine, reliable pirate.      Arr!

Sophia Mae!

Merry Midsummer!

A Prayer to the Sun

The sun is high above us

shining down upon the land and sea,

making things grow and bloom.

Great and powerful sun,

we honor you this day

and thank you for your gifts.

Ra, Helios, Sol Invictus, Aten, Svarog,

you are known by many names.

You are the light over the crops,

the heat that warms the earth,

the hope that springs eternal,

the bringer of life.

We welcome you, and we honor you this day,

celebrating your light,

as we begin our journey once more

into the darkness.
