'The little space within the heart is as great as the vast universe. The heavens and the earth are there, and the sun and the moon and the stars. Fire and lightning and winds are there, and all that now is and all that is not.' -The Upanishads.

Thanksgiving is early this year

We survived a devastating storm and an election. And right now, we're being pounded by a Nor'easter. Miraculously, superstorm Sandy did very little damage to our house and property. For that, I am deeply thankful. I protected the big trees in our yard with offerings of cornmeal, according to Native American tradition, and red strings, according to some other tradition I had heard about. Maybe Celtic? A version of a Scots clootie, perhaps? In any case, it worked. We never even lost power. In between cooking pots of soup for not so fortunate friends, I managed to make and list a few bracelets on Etsy. And make my first sale!! (Thank you, dear Kristin.)
