Féile na Marbh soon…

Monday Morning… Mist is low over the area today. Grey, very grey. Cut back all my Salvias last night, in fear of frost. Now I have a huge pile of cuttings. Moved all the cold sensitive plants into the garage as well. Watched Constantine last night. If you don’t suffer from Catholic Guilt before you see this film, you may be infected with it after. All those Demonic Possessions! So many bodies, so little time! Aiyeee! Actually I like the…

Harvest Night…the Birth of Bacchus!

From The Edonians, by Aeschylus One on the fair-turned pipe fulfils His song, with the warble of fingered trills The soul to frenzy awakening. From another the brazen cymbals ring. The shawm blares out, but beneath is the moan Of the bull-voiced mimes, unseen, unknown, And in deep diapason the shuddering sound Of drums, like thunder, beneath the ground. On The Menu: The Links Obiwan’s Used Car Bacchus Is Born…..! Ainu Tales: The Man who Married the Bear-Goddess Wine Poetry…

Down to the Sea…

Flags on Tuesday So Mary and yours truly went off to the seaside for a couple of days… this is a view landward down the bay on Tuesday mid afternoon. We picked a quiet sleepy town not overrun entirely with the machinations of the developers and the second householders… but a village still rundown, no Starbucks, no mall, not even a resturant. Lots of quiet though, lots of that. The bay was 50 yards from our porch. The sound of…

The Friends of The People of Faery…W.B. Yeats Part 2

Our second visit with Mr. Yeats. I like to visit him when I can, and especially with the beauty of Autumn around us.. I often consider Yeats a nature poet, and then a metaphysical one as well. His love of country and land sings through his works. The man had a great gift, and I think we can all share in it, if but for a short time… Gwyllm ____________________ THE FRIENDS OF THE PEOPLE OF FAERY – W.B. Yeats…

ENCHANTED WOODS Yeats Part 1

Nothing like a bit of William Butler Yeats to clear the head and to restore the spirit. Yeats has been a constant companion of mine since my teens, and he still whispers in my ear to this day. The power of poetry, the power of love, who among you can doubt these basic elements of life? Happy Reading, Gwyllm (thanks to Robert Venosa for the wonderful art!) ____________ (Robert Venosa – Garden of Delights) ENCHANTED WOODS – Y.B. Yeats I…

The Faint Glimmers..

Friday Morning: I get the Faint Glimmers… almost like a humming of the eyes. I get the dreams and the hopes, telegraphing into my mind, my body, my soul. Though I am often weary of the world, I get the faint glimmers that we are still in the middle of a great change, and no one, no one, can truly know where we are going. Faint Glimmers… incremental and massive change. Here is to the times we live in, the…
