First freedman from the summer sun!
Spice high the bowl, and drink your fill!
Thank heaven, at last the summer’s done!
-Thomas Constable (1812-81)

ThoughtCo: Tir na nOg – The Irish Legend of Tir na nOg

In the Irish myth cycles, the land of Tir na nOg is the realm of the Otherworld, the place where the Fae lived and heroes visited on quests. It was a place just outside the realm of man, off to the west, where there was no illness or death or time, but only happiness and beauty.

Daily Good: Creative Chaos

The transcendent artistry of Green Renaissance Films allows us to enter into the life of a young man who has journeyed through mental disorder and arrived at a place of wholeness with an openness to the chaos of life. He has come to realize that he does not need to hold fear at bay by trying to order his world, controlling everything. Rather he embraces the chaos and unpredictability of daily living as the magic of the real world, allowing more beautiful things to happen, a world full of possibilities. The beauty of the film’s location in South Africa adds an even deeper dimension to this young man’s profound insights. { read more }

MNN: Why is the sky so blue in autumn?

The color of the leaves isn’t the only thing that changes in autumn. Have you ever looked up on a crisp fall day and noticed how brilliant and clear the blue sky is? That’s not just your imagination — the sky really is more blue, and all because of science.
To understand why the sky is so especially vivid in autumn, you first need to understand why it’s blue in the first place.

EarthSky News: Watch after sunrise for a daytime moon

The Northern Hemisphere’s full Hunter’s Moon has passed. The moon is now in a waning gibbous phase, rising in the east later and later each evening. That means you can catch the moon over your eastern horizon before going to bed, and then over the western horizon after sunrise in the coming days.

Patheos-Pagan: Of Light & Shadow: Connecting with Anubis at Samhain

With Samhain approaching in just a couple of weeks (wow, already?), many pagans and witches are already well into their preparations for the celebration. I often find that I am scrambling rather last-minute to get my preparations in order, as I get wrapped up in so many other things going on in the fall season and my own personal life.

Inner Journey:


“No one can find his work, what he really wants to put all of himself into, when everything he does he is made to do by others. This kind of searching must be done freely or not at all.”
— John Holt

We all need space — free from demands, deadlines, expectations and judgments — to explore who we are and what life is all about. Free time, with absolutely no agenda, is rich with potential. How can we grow if we have no space and freedom to dream?

“Deny children — or anyone else — the chance to do ‘nothing,’ and we may be denying them the chance to do ‘something’ — to find and do any work that is truly important to themselves or to someone else.”
— John Holt

A Note from the Universe

What makes you richer is the picture, that you hold in your mind.

Today’s Recipe: Butternut Squash with Macintosh Apples

I just love winter squash. I like it a bit sweet, but do not like having to sweeten it with so much sugar. I thought maybe I could cook apples with it and sweeten it naturally. This is so good, you will love it and you will have the kids eating their veggies like never before!

Daily Wisdom
October 15, 2019


“There is not a single true work of art that has not in the end added to the inner freedom of each person who has known and loved it.”

-Albert Camus (1913-1960)

The beauty of creativity is that it teaches us about ourselves. We are, by nature, creative beings, and when we express our creativity we feel free, we feel boundless – and that is what we truly are.

-Lissa Coffey


Daily Tarot: The Emperor

You’ll need determination and perseverance to accomplish anything of substance today. Pick something (or accept something that has been assigned to you) and stick with it until day’s end. If you apply concentrated effort, you should be able to make a huge headway. Even if not, your single-minded approach will attract allies for tomorrow. You have more influence and authority than you suspect. Use them wisely.
