Why is this a blogue?

  • Why is this a blogue, not a blog? It’s just an old-fashioned touch that harkens back to less-hurried (and harried) times, when a letter took a while to get delivered, and a reply took a while longer. When books were savored for their precious rarity. When news came in slowly for the most part and could be thoughtfully considered. A rapid-fire flow of constant info-junk tends to make me twitchy. When you visit my blogue, I invite you to take a nice deep breath, absorb things a little at a time, wander in a serendipitous fashion, and generally remember that even in the ultra-speedy world of the Internet, you control the pace of your life.

I'm hoping to harvest a new, stable relationship.. And I am for the first time celebrating Lammas together with likeminded people.
Full of hope indeed!


Actually, I'll be...harvesting! And you are right: it is all about the timing. This is my first garden in a number of years, and I find my timing is off--is the tomato really ready? Do those beans need a little more time? And I think the corn could've used a few more days... A wonderful working, waking, growing allegory of life. I find I'm confused, but glad to be gardening (-living?) anyway :) I hope I'll harvest a knowing of harvesting, for both the garden and my life, for the future.

Tarot Card of the Week

  • Moon

    When the planet turns its face toward the dark, our nocturnal nature draws us out into the realm of Moon. This is a dominion of dreams that we explore with our senses fully awake. The subconscious spills into consciousness, allowing us to see what is not revealed by sight alone. Strange sounds come to our ears, intoxicating perfumes reach our noses, things appear that only emerge in darkness. We creep softly, following our moonshadows over the colorless world.
