“Taxi September along Jessore Road
Oxcart skeletons drag charcoal load
past watery fields thru rain flood ruts
Dung cakes on treetrunks, plastic-roof huts
Wet processions Families walk
Stunted boys big heads don’t talk
Look bony skulls & silent round eyes
Starving black angels in human disguise.”
Allen Ginsberg, September on Jessore Road

SEPTEMBER 21, 2022 BY IRISANYA MOON
I remember the early days of my witch-ventures. I read all the things, all the books, signed up for those mailing lists that sent you pages you could put into a binder, wrote about how I felt about the moon – and much more (now) embarrassing things.

VALUE JUST BEING
“To do great work a man must be very idle as well as very industrious.”
— Samuel Butler
Many of us have been taught to believe that we are valued for what we do, not just for who we are. ‘Doing’ is important, but to keep life in balance, we also need time to just ‘be.’
Henry David Thoreau expressed this so well in Walden Pond:
“There were times when I could not afford to sacrifice the bloom of the present moment to any work, whether of the head or hand.
“Sometimes, on a summer morning, I sat in my sunny doorway from sunrise till noon, rapt in a revery, amidst the pines and hickories and sumacs, in undisturbed solitude and stillness, while the birds sang around or flitted noiseless through the house, untilby the sun falling in at my west window, or the noise of some traveller’s wagon on the distant highway, I was reminded of the lapse of time.
“I grew in those seasons like corn in the night, and they were far better than any work of the hands would have been.”
A Note from the Universe
Emotional pains are just truth knocking upon a door that’s been closed too long.

“The task of leadership is not to put greatness into humanity, but to elicit it, for the greatness is already there.”
-John Buchan (1875-1940)
Great leaders see the greatness in the community. They understand what the community has to offer and they seek ways to express that. We can each be a leader, right where we are, just by noticing all the good around us, and bringing it to the attention of others.

Daily Tarot: The Tower
The biggest danger you face today is being aloof and thus fail to see an approaching problem. This can cost you the chance to intercept the difficulty and minimize it, if not avoid it all together. Pay attention without getting paranoid, and take nothing and no one for granted. Danger may not lurk within every single shadow, but a small misstep can sometimes cause problems that are way out of proportion to the cause.
