Once in a Blue Moon
We’ve something of a magical weekend ahead of us. Not only is it Lùnastal (or Lughnasadh, Lammas, or Gwyl Awst, if you prefer), but it’s a blue moon as well. The last time Lùnastal and a blue moon fell together was 2004.
Lùnastal marks the beginning of harvest and, coupled with the second full moon of July, we’ve got ourselves a strange brew in the making.
For my part, after work I’m looking to hit the Converse Town Rummage with Kim, then play a board game with Connor before the three of us wrap up season nine of Smallville. Then we’ll see about lighting a Harvest Fire.. and writing the first lines of a new project.
It’s also a time to reap what’s been sown. There is a lesson that I keep having to relearn and it is this — It is not enough to be published. You need to be published well. It’s time once more for some soul searching, to reevaluate where my writing is taking me.
Lùnastal is the perfect time for this…
