Re: Autumnal Equinox


Where I grew up, we did not have street lights. I was in the Mining community of Rovanna, just outside of Bishop, [sign in to see URL] desert, right up next to the foot of the Sierra [sign in to see URL] the "Mine company" was to cheap to have street lamps installed except around the offices, us kids all grew up playing under the stars and moon and in clear view of whatever or whomever wanted to watch!
I loved [sign in to see URL] I married we had to move to San Diego, (hubby was in the Navy)...but when we'd go home, as we drove the 300 miles from San Diego to Bishop, the night sky would grow clearer and clearer and I'd always have to say out loud how much I missed the night sky and the stars.
When I had my [sign in to see URL] would lay outside (mind you this was MINNESOTA) all bundled up in sleeping bags and watch the meteor showers and the Northern [sign in to see URL] was magikal. And to think of what my son has enlightened me [sign in to see URL] back, it was even more magikal than I knew.
I still have to sleep with my bedroom window blind open even if only a few inches, so that I can see the stars and the moon! emoticon

Re: Autumnal Equinox


Fun read, this thread. Not sure I have much to offer it. Ya'll are bringing stuff to the front of my brain I've kept safe, in reserve, in the back, repitian portion, just above the spinal cortex. I like the phrase somebody uses, "the good dark". I may have to steal it. The kind of night sky mentioned I once captioned this way in a prose poem: night sky ocean. The autumn equinox, and the stories involving Mab (or Lug), has special meaning for me. I was born on that day. Mab is a hell of an act to have to follow.

I'm glad you are enjoying our postings, and I'm even happier that the things of what we speak are making you bring forth memories long stashed away.. emoticon

I like your description as "night sky ocean"...makes me think of a vast, darkness, alive with wondrous things and possibilities.

Re: Autumnal Equinox


Queeny, we used to lay in our back yard when I was growing up, and look at the stars, but there was still way too much light [sign in to see URL] were very close to Redstone Arsenal (Army base in Huntsville), and you know how well lit those buggers are! I envy you the ability to watch the stars and meteors and the Northern Lights so frequently.

We have blinds on our bedroom windows, but we never put them down. Where I lay, I can look outside and see some stars, and how bright the moon is, and such, but still not as good as I'd [sign in to see URL] well.

Terreson, I'm glad that you're finding things here that interest you, as well as finding parts of yourself again. We all tend to push too much to the backs of our brains.

Re: Autumnal Equinox



when this thread started I wasn't even looking for a homestead, and bemoaned the lack of a fire, this equinox.. All has changed, and we can enjoy properly. Every year, at this time, when I sit by a fire, I learn of all the things I need to learn, for the next year. I was rather worried that this year might be a first when this could not happen. The RV park I was on at that time forbids any fires..

What a lucky little wise ass I am...

Re: Autumnal Equinox


Muladzh, my brother,...fire can be done in many different ways. Granted, a good actual campfire type fire is best, but if worse comes to [sign in to see URL] lot of candles, indoors may have worked when all else would not have been possible. Never the same, but [sign in to see URL] you just have to make do with what's available.

I am glad, however, that you were able to do things your [sign in to see URL] even happier that you now have your [sign in to see URL] the work you need to do. At least it will be the way you want it! emoticon
