Teinei, recipes and Samhain
I'm late, I'm late, for a very important date! It's been a busy week here full of wonderful distractions and inspiration...here are your prompts, ripe with reflection, a little history and plenty of imagination!
Words hold meaning.
Some words hold whole patterns of thought and philosophy.
Some foreign words hold a sensation or capture an idea or emotion in a way other languages cannot.
This little book is full of such words, Japanese words that express this mindful magic as only Japanese can.
Teinei - courtesy expressed through attentiveness.
What does attentiveness look and sound like for you?
A recipe for everything!
So much fun in this book!
Simply follow the recipe on page 213-214…(above)
Samhain/Halloween…the witching hour
There is always something worthy of celebration, and when we forget why, there are plenty of good books to remind us!
Halloween is around the corner and though we groan about all the in-your-face marketing, beyond all that is history rich in seasonal magic, so let's get back to source, call on your inner witch or wizard and cast a few spells!
Of course, in Australia the seasons are the opposite!
Check out this little book, 'Sunwyse' for a down-under comparison and here is a little reading to get you started.
What are you celebrating?
For me, it seems there is not much difference between wondering and wandering. It has always helped me find inspiration. Creative dabbling is good for the soul, I couldn't imagine life without it and often surprise myself by what I come up with.
