πŸŒ™ Happy Leo Season! And how fitting that tonight, my research on the Lion-Serpent brought me to the Tibetan deity Senge Dong-ma or SiαΉƒhamukhā, the lion-faced dakini and "Guardian of the Secret Tantric Teachings." Some other deities associated with this powerful time of year are Ancient Egyptian Sekhmet and Lugh in the Celtic cosmology. β˜‰πŸ¦

πŸŒ™ Dreamy summer day on the trail. πŸ’“

πŸŒ™ Towing the line
I watched the host drink all the wine
And now she rambles through the who've and who have nots
The old man is a painter of tired seascapes
Tired of adventure
So my mind wanders
Picking at the table to cure the wrong
Like a bird in a world with no trees
You were hung up there in your disbelief
I know I'm a hard rock to drag around

Love is in the early mornings
In the shadows under the trees
Not in the cuckolded ashes
Floating down from the rookery

Down here I crow for you
You crow for meΒ 
Down here I crow for you
You crow for me

Towing the line
I watched the host drink all the wine
And now I’m purring for a drop of anything
Throwing stones at your window
You turn to me as if it’s simple
Why can’t you be like the blackbird and sing
I said I'm the westerlies in Ireland
So decadent and violent
Can’t you see I'm a forager
Crawling at the bedrock

Love is in the early mornings
In the shadows under the trees
Not in the cuckolded ashes
Floating down from the rookery

Down here I crow for you
You crow for me
Down here I crow for you
You crow for me 🎢 #benhoward #towingtheline

πŸŒ™ Growing and arranging flowers is therapy to me! Who would have thought that my journey would take me here? All I can say is thank you, thank you, thank you. This life is so beautiful. 🌻 @moonbirdfarm

πŸŒ™ Forever, forever... such a beautiful thing.

bedtime story: "It’s easy to feel uncared for when people aren’t able to communicate and connect with you in the way you need. And it’s so hard not to internalize that silence as a reflection on your worth. But the truth is that the way other people operate is not about you. Most people are so caught up in their own responsibilities, struggles, and anxiety that the thought of asking someone else how they’re doing doesn’t even cross their mind. They aren’t inherently bad or uncaring β€” they’re just busy and self-focused. And that’s okay. It’s not evidence of some fundamental failing on your part. It doesn’t make you unloveable or invisible. It just means that those people aren’t very good at looking beyond their own world. But the fact that you are β€” that despite the darkness you feel, you have the ability to share your love and light with others β€” is a strength. Your work isn’t to change who you are; it’s to find people who are able to give you the connection you need. Because despite what you feel, you are not too much. You are not too sensitive or too needy. You are thoughtful and empathetic. You are compassionate and kind. And with or without anyone’s acknowledgment or affection, you are enough." β€”@DaniellKoepke

πŸŒ™ Trying something new today - preserved garlic. It's SO simple! All I had to do was peel the cloves, boil some vinegar and pour over top. From there you can leave it in the fridge for up to a year or can with water bath or steam method. Apparently the garlic does not take on the vinegar flavour as the outer layer protects the clove from being saturated. All you have to do is rinse before use, or leave the vinegar taste for extra flavour. Yum! πŸ˜‹
