Am Beannachadh Bealltain (The Beltane Blessing)


Bless, O threefold true and bountiful,
Myself, my spouse, my children.
Bless everything within my dwelling and in my possession,
Bless the kine and crops, the flocks and corn,
From Samhain Eve to Beltane Eve,
With goodly progress and gentle blessing,
From sea to sea, and every river mouth,
From wave to wave, and base of waterfall.

Be the Maiden, Mother, and Crone,
Taking possession of all to me belonging.
Be the Horned God, the Wild Spirit of the Forest,
Protecting me in truth and honor.
Satisfy my soul and shield my loved ones,
Blessing every thing and every one,
All my land and my surroundings.
Great gods who create and bring life to all, I ask for your blessings on this day of fire.


Merry Beltain to All.

Knee-Jerk Stupidity

Why is it that so many people just react when they see something that they assume will be in conflict with their beliefs?

All reason seems to fly out of the window in favor of defensive posturing and canned fury.

People are so quick to take up the banner of their rhetoric that they don't even pay attention to that against which they believe they are railing...

Wouldn't the world be so much more productive if people stopped and paid attention before leaping into hysterics?

Blogger for Android!

I just found out that they released an official Blogger app for Android so I just had to give it a whirl.
So far, so good. Maybe this will inspire me to blog more often... Doubtful... LOL
At least I have a nice way to do it from my Android device now though. :)
