Welcome to your weekend!
It’s Fab Five Friday when you get to see five of my favorite things this week. Enjoy!
Listen: The season is turning into Autumn. The winds grow colder and the leaves fall to the ground. Clear night skies reveal stars returning from their journey in southern skies. My thoughts turn to my ancestors, the mighty dead, and all those who inhabit the next world. I’m among those who believe the barrier between world’s grows thinner at this time of year. Raise that hot pumpkin latte, cold beer, or any other drink in the air and thank the ancestors for their presence in your life! Listen to this song while you do it. Meet Wardruna.
Legends & Lore: Of Coles County! That was the class I attended earlier this week with host Becky Guymon of CIL-CON. We covered familiar ground with Rag Doll Cemetary and the Mad Gasser of Mattoon. We also learned of hauntings in town that got media attention in the early 1900’s. That was fun and insightful! I hope you all get the chance to attend an upcoming class! See the photo on the left.
Mars Makes Historic News!: I grew up obsessed with space. I haven’t lost that obsession. In the wake of a supermoon / blood moon (ritual anyone?) NASA announced they found rivers of briny water on Mars. That’s amazing! The more we explore, the more we learn. We might even stumble on missing parts of the history of life itself.
Skate For Diabetes: The event came and went here in Mattoon. We had a great turnout and raised a few thousand dollars to support the JDRF! I thank each and every one of you for your support! You can still make a donation online to help our cause. Thank you!
Kickstarter Tarot!: The long awaited campaign for the Lunar Fire Tarot deck is finally here! It’s not too late to get in on the action. Stretch goals are already being offered. Hurry up before you miss out!
