There Were Days Between

There were days, there were days, There were days between. Summer flies and August dies, And the world grows dark and mean. Comes a shimmer of the moon On dark, infested trees; Singing man is at his song, The holy on their knees, The reckless are out wrecking, The timid plead their pleas. No one … Continue reading There Were Days Between

One Last Beginning (Can You Feel the Crispness?)

It happened during a quick after-work drive through my hometown. It was the last hour of golden evening daylight. Townsend, where I grew up, is a very small and very average town. (Seriously, click the link.) It sits along the north-central edge of Massachusetts, and it’s one of the greatest places on Earth. I ended … Continue reading One Last Beginning (Can You Feel the Crispness?)

Lammas in the Retrogrades

One of the things I hate the most is being forced against my will to take good advice. I hate it even more if it seems like I’m being forced to take good advice by fucking meddling planets.

I have a lot on my plate and feel like I'm slipping behind even when I'm cranking out all kinds of work in like … Continue reading Onward we charge, into the sun

This Year, Equinox Week is Election Week (Dispatches from Campaign HQ)

Bet you didn't know we did elections at the Wizard of Monadnock. Until a couple weeks ago, neither did me. How and when exactly this little endeavor came to me, I can't quite recall. The fact of the matter is, I sprang right into action, putting together a democratic election apparatus and inventing bylaws and … Continue reading This Year, Equinox Week is Election Week (Dispatches from Campaign HQ)

Take heart! The wheel turns on!

This is your official Imbolc post for 2017, right on schedule, just over 9 days late. I often say to my wife, when making excuses for being behind on things or being confused as to how it is already the date that it is - both of which are nearly daily occurrences, as you might … Continue reading Take heart!
