Stories are magical things which tie humans together with one another, our environments, our ancestors and beyond. They entertain as well as teach us things about life and how others relate to this grand experience of living.
Ok, I’m sorry but that’s just funny. That’s all. LOL!
Speaking of great stories and great story tellers here’s a song by one of today’s great bards.
Went and caught some great rock-n-roll at the summons of my good friend Dale Russel of Outrider. His band played after Blackout. A lot of great bands and a great way to party after our wonderful Lughnasadh / Lammas ritual yesterday.
Lammas is derived from an Anglo-Saxon word, hlaf-mas, meaning “loaf-mass”. It is a festival to mark the annual wheat harvest, and is the first harvest festival of the year. On this day it was customary to bring a loaf made from a new crop to church. The loaf was then blessed, and among Anglo-Saxon people, it might be used afterwards to work magic. A book of Anglo-Saxon charms indicated that the lammas bread should be broken into four bits, which were to be placed at the four corners of a barn, to protect the grain stored within.
