‘The perfume of sandalwood,

travel only as far as wind.
But the fragrance of goodness
travels with us through all the worlds.
Like the garlands woven from a heap of flowers,
fashion your life as a garland of beautiful deeds.’
— The Budha

Labor Day ~ End of Summer ~!

The weekend is winding down .. the weather has truly been glorious.
My garden is wild .. for lack of a better term, and I know soon it will settle down into the ‘Autumn’ look. The colors changing .. this is such a visual season for me ..!!

This week, has been a political bonanza to say the least.
The Democratic nomination of Mr Obama was history in the making.
Then we have the Republican rebuttal with Ms. Palin ..

My dearest and oldest friend Kat and I were on the phone ranting and raving watching history unfold on TV …

Though I know a lot of people are over saturated with all the political hoopla, if you are interested in an honest and refreshing view point, please visit a friend of mine’s blog Ms Sarah Campbell over at the Herbs from the Labyrinth Blog and read:: Two messages from Starhawk at the Republican National Convention.

Then, for this month’s reading from Kat, check out her RockTarot.com
Be sure to read her ‘goddess speak’ column on the right hand side of the page,as New Yorkers .. 9/11 has not been forgotten. We have friends and family members that are still healing from that horrific day.

Speaking of which .. I have been watching some movies that really were an eye opener.
‘Stop Loss’ and ‘Kite Runner’ .. two very moving and intense movies. I am not into watching war movies or anything violent. However, these are stories that need to be heard.

For some really beautiful photography of nature .. my friend Sue over at Farm at Coventry Blog is a visual explosion of beauty!

So it’s back to school, vacations are over .. and a new season beginning. After the summer of heat and sun be sure to pamper your skin.
