Tie Dyes and Drumming!
I ended up not having to work overtime last night so I decided to throw together an impromptu drum circle for myself and anyone else who happened to show up. The weather was nice and the vibe was right so why not right?
After dark, the view from behind the drum looked something like this. May you dance, drum and sing to the rhythm of your heart and spirit. May your ancestors join you in celebration and may you always have tribe to join you by the fire. If not, may you find peace in being a tribe of one.

Okay, whosoever was under the impression I was pure anyway? Have you seen my picture of the three pigs that got me in trouble on Google+ twice?
I was told I spent too much time bragging about my big deck on Facebook after having it expanded. But it was a very proud moment for me and I had looked forward to the upgrade for a long time. Now all my friends enjoy coming over and sitting on my deck which brings me great pleasure.

Temple Of the Standing Stones Drums!
Video recorded by Mark K. at 8-20-2016 Wing Ding at Deep Woods Apothecary where some members of my temple joined me for a little drumming after we had our full moon ritual that night. Thank you Mindy and all the regulars for having us. We had a great time!
So, I just recently finished the first book in the Tufa Novels by Alex Bledsoe, ‘The Hum And The Shiver’ and started on the second book ‘Wisp Of A Thing’. These books inspired the album Tufa Tales which one of my favorite bands, Tuatha Dea released a little over a year ago. There’s still a copy of it available for the enterprising person who finds the Ostara egg hidden on Our Pantheons Way as one of my ongoing contests by the way. Anyway, a new book in the series is out now ‘Chapel Of Ease’ and I’m reading my way toward it this week so I can be caught up on these Appalachian Fairy tales about a mysterious clan of people who some say are the remnants of the Tuatha De Danann of the green isle far away. People who were said to already be living in a secluded valley in the hills of Tennessee when the first European colonists arrived. Very interesting stories indeed and I can’t recommend them enough. Anyway, while reading I learned of this interesting painting called The Fairy Feller’s Master Stroke by the English artist Richard Dadd which he worked on for 9 years between 1855 and 1864 in which he used a layering technique which produced 3D like results. It’s a fascinating piece with references in it from old English folklore to Shakespearean works to a host of other historical tidbits and nods. Have a look:
Anyway… Because I haven’t been online collecting memes much lately due to all the reading this will have to do for today’s ‘Daily Roundup’ I’m afraid. Happy hunting!

I hate it when that happens. I swear, I’m going to put one of these signs in my back yard just so I can watch people looking up in the trees for the monkey. Lol!

May your magickal skill be between me and all ill-will and ill-wishing. Morrigan, Great Goddess. May your protection be on me today, tomorrow and forever. – Morgan Daimler
I think I like reason number 13 the best. 😉

“Every gardener knows that animals know when things are ripe before the gardener does. Same for foragers. Squirrels have begun ripping open pine cones which tells me I should, too. Each scale of the pine cone has a small but delicious nut at its base. It takes some effort to get to it but its worth it!

Listen up motherfucker!
Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling is the first billionaire to fall off the Forbes billionaire list because of charitable giving: “You have a moral responsibility when you’ve been given far more than you need, to do wise things with it and give intelligently.”
Okay, I have a bit of an issue with the “first billionaire to fall off the Forbes billionaire list because of charitable giving:” part. I don’t know just how long Forbes has been keeping that list but I do know that history has had many philanthropists before who have done great things for society as a whole with their wealth. Perhaps it might have been better to say “the first billionaire in recent history”? In any event major kudos to J.K. Rowling and her philosophy of giving back. The world needs more like her and I admire her work as well as her philosophy.
Oh my gawds! LMAO!!

Yep. Best not to let them linger and grow. That’s how they can manage to take over your life and lead you to misery.
