I woke early this morning, wondering why I didn't have alot to say here on my blog. Then I realized that my body is going through the autumn... settling down in readiness for winter. I felt a very real connection with Mother Earth - the Goddess. This connection started a few weeks back. Remember when I mentioned Mary Magdalene and how I felt her presence? well, I am sure my settled-ess, my satisfied feeling, my contented-ness is due in part, a big part, to her. I am part of the Mary Magdalene clan, part of her tribe, I am sure of it. My great-grandmother Laura, my cornish connection is also a Magdalene. I just know it...... and since 'discovering' this, I am feeling so much more settled. It is like my search has settled, the jigsaw is nearly complete. And I feel wonderful. I am content...... still wondering why the hell I am here in Australia instead of my soul home... but as dear Sr.K says : "all will be revealed"
My garden is slowing down too.. a few weeks ago, I planted parsley and lettuce and both are thriving. I have been watering them with my comfrey tea and it is certainly working and making them look healthy. My persimmon tree is heavy with fruit and the birds are enjoying it at the moment. Last week, Rudy, an old german man came by and picked a basket.. he is wonderful to talk to. So full of knowledge. He told me a few old folklore rememdies and dropped off some of his notes for me to read. Yesterday, the currawongs were in the my garden and their calls were haunting ~ Listen to the Currawong ~ I love it !!! once I hear these birds, I know that it is truly autumn and my soul feels at peace. Maybe it harks back from my life in the UK - the cold and mist.. not sure but it makes a lot of sense to me..
I am going away for the weekend for a ride on the bike... up to Morpeth, in the Hunter Valley. My maternal great-grandmother was born there and I hope to find some information.. It should be a fun weekend, hopefully it will stay dry !!
so what is it now since I visited your blog? a week? or two?..... once I have been away on the bike & blown the cobwebs away ... I will be over to visit.... then I am sure it will be back to normal to my chatty self!
