East of us, west of us, full summer. Though the Starry Virgin ascends and the Nemean Lion slinks off through the sky, still we are within the season’s fullness. Ripe are the plums of Portland, ripe the garbage piles of alleyless New Amsterdam. The sun hits the fields in that old familiar way. Everything seems lit from within.
What will you do with these last even now-fleeting moments of this Turn of the Wheel? Will you bid it turn faster, so that you may inhabit the autumn of your half-memories and invention? Or will you praise the month as it is, spread out before thee? Not that I’m trying to nudge you either way. A witch should never play favorites with seasons. I have the cicatrices to prove it!! I’m not naming names but inter-way can be a real erkoff-jay.
Just what I’m saying is don’t let it be October and you’re like, WHY didn’t I go to the beach like I said I would.
