Let the Chase of Lugh begin! We will follow him through the three harvest festivals of Lughnasadh, Mabon (Autumn Equinox), and then finally Samhain (Halloween).
Lughnasadh is the beginning of the grain harvest, and the harvest season in general. Now is the time to enjoy the fruits of our labor. We give thanks to the Earth for her bounty and beauty. We celebrate with feasts and festivals, fire and bread. We acknowledge the return of the darkness and gather our harvest to see us through the coming winter.
Tomorrow I will be in the studio creating beautiful pendulums charged with the fruitful energy of Lughnasadh. I will be posting to my Etsy through out the week.
You can find more information about Lughnasadh/Lammas here.

Nature comfort your soul.
Sometimes I get so busy “running the race” that I forget to breathe, relax, connect. So today I remind myself to take time to enjoy the beauty and wonders of Mother Earth. I will watch the fluttering butterflies, I will hear the droning bees, I will taste the sweetest fruits, and I will feel the warmth and guidance provided by Nature. Will you join me?

Several weeks ago I borrowed my Dad’s Nikon SLR camera. I have been thinking of investing in a new camera and I wanted to give it a test drive before I purchased. Wow! What a difference! I would never have been able to capture a shot like this with my old camera.
So I will be holding my Dad’s camera hostage until I can afford my own. Click here
