Put Down that Computer, Young Lady, and Go Outside

In the end, you are either connected to your landbase or you are not. You either have a personal relationship with your watershed or you do not. Those things take time.

You can buy all the books and athames and tarot decks and Celtic-knot gimgraws and plasticene statues of Goddesses in the world. You can go to festivals, you can take on-line courses, you can wear t-shirts with air-brushed pictures of wolves under a full Moon, and you can dress like a RenFaire refugee 24/7. (Not that there's anything wrong with that.) But those things won't make you a practicing member of a nature religion.

Just saying.

What did you do to "practice" your religion today?

I weeded the lavender, and encouraged the arbor vitae of the circle. I also practiced some tough love with the lemon balm.

And for dinner, I had a large, glorious, still warm from the sun heirloom tomato from the garden.

Teacats said...

Watered parched pots of herbs and chided fat morning doves and chased annoying starlings. When the storms threatened -- I dashed outside and stashed the umbrella and the cushions! And then asked for rain .... and watched disappointed as the dark clouds didn't cry a drop. Drat. Sometimes the answer is "NO" ....

And pouring a few drops of cream for a whining cat ....

.... who will not take NO for an answer. Maybe I should follow that example and be more persistent.

I sat at my computer and wrote about the Goddess Sunna. So there!

I also did weed the herb garden a bit, but I really didn't have the energy for it.

All I need to do is look out the window and I become so thankful and feel so connected. Yesterday was an inside work day. Today I can enjoy the garden.
