first off it's Mabon! Happy Mabon! for those of you who aren't sure of that exactly I can propose some help which I got from Wikipedia as follows....
"Autumnal Equinox: The holiday of Autumn Equinox, Harvest Home, Mabon, the Feast of the Ingathering, Meán Fómhair or Alban Elfed (in Neo-Druidic traditions), is a ritual of thanksgiving for the fruits of the earth and a recognition of the need to share them to secure the blessings of the Goddess and the God during the winter months. The name Mabon was coined by Aidan Kelly around 1970 as a reference to Mabon ap Modron, a character from Welsh mythology. In the northern hemisphere this equinox occurs anywhere from September 21 to 24. In the southern hemisphere, the autumn equinox occurs anywhere from March 18–22. Among the sabbats, it is the second of the three harvest festivals, preceded by Lammas/Lughnasadh and followed by Samhain."
Next stop: Samhain (Oct 31)
Well enough of that! I HAD to post this video (I will in just a in a minute after I finish babbling) because although this video has really nothing to do with anything else in this particular post except itself, I love it!
The people in the video are my friends Glen, Stu, and Hillary and they are this awesome folky rock trio called Gathering Time (http://www.gatheringtimetrio.com/) Angus and I are groupies of Gathering Time's and we are called The Gatherers (thanks to Hillary for the name). We gather at their shows, sing, dance, harass the band, and generally just have a swell time!
So anyway, Angus posted me this video on facebook and I felt like I just had to share it with my blogging world. After all this is my blog and I post whatever I want. The band is also particularly awesome and they write their own songs too. They have a CD out now called Songs Of Hope And Freedom and the songs and harmonies are killer. Really killer. So without further blathering on from me, here they are....
Insanely good aren't they? Try to get to one of their live shows! Even better!!
Well that's all for me for now!
