Sunday Respite – Summer of 300 Years


The Sun is now beginning to wane. It is a time of change and shift. Active growth is slowing down and the darker days of winter and reflection are beckoning…

Lammas.   Celebrated the beginning of August.

 “Celebrate the Festival of Harvest with the firstfruits of the crops you sow in your field.” “Celebrate the Festival of Ingathering at the end of the year, when you gather in your crops from the field.”

In the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, where it is referred to regularly, it is called “the feast of first fruits”. The blessing of new fruits was performed annually in both the Eastern and Western Churches on the first, or the sixth, of August.

On Loaf Mass Day, it is customary to bring to a Christian church a loaf made from the new crop, which began to be harvested at Lammastide, which falls at the halfway point between the summer solstice and autumn September equinox.

Since the time of the ancients, in gratitude, honor has been bestowed throughout the year with festivals in thanks given to Mother Earth’s blessings. Various religions and traditions have named it differently yet the intention was the same. The Wheel keeps turning. The cycle of life and seasons repeat

Summer of three hundred years by the group 2002.

Legend tells that a person visiting the mysterious northern island of Tír na nÓg for few days, may discover upon returning that 300 years have passed.

I suggest watching this in full screen.

Wishing everyone a wonderful day with much Peace.

    That took me back about 60 years to a time when the world was simpler . The sun shining on my half Cherokee half Irish girls hair . The dark brown Cherokee hair and tan with the Irish red showing through each strand as the sun made it honest . I fell in love at the tender age of ten . How was that even possible but yet I’m still madly in love in my 70’s . The world does not have to make sense when you are in love .

    Excellent post, Bunks. Where I live, the past week has brought a heat index of between 104 and 108, which makes doing anything out of doors a real chore (and dangerous). Thank goodness for whoever invented air conditioning. Blessings to all.
