It has got to be an appropriate day to write a Blog today. Spring Equinox AND a full moon – a powerful combination together. Easter in all its glory.
Gareth has cancelled tonight (here) as he is going to an important meeting. Well, he is a Pagan at heart!
It is also Good Friday, of course, and an important day in the calendar of the Christian Church universally; not just the Catholic one but other denominations besides.
Actually, I prefer Easter to Christmas. For one thing its warmer (normally), but its not bogged down (rather suppressed) by commercialism. At least, the real meaning is often ‘suppressed’ by that human desire for greed, and all the rest of it. This still applies to Easter, of course, but to a lesser degree I think That is mainly limited to the sale of Easter eggs, and the greeting cards hardly touch the Christmas ones in contrast to sheer magnitude.
Please do not get me wrong anybody. I am not opposed to the real meanings behind Christmas and Easter in the TRUE sense; only the hypocrisy of many people and big businesses who try – indeed do – make huge profits out of these.
That is just the way of the ‘material world’, I suppose, but there can be no harm in pointing this out. It is only an observation in any event. It is not just my personal observation – anybody can see it if they care to look.
Aside from this, I went to a small meeting this evening. (I usually do on a Thursday, and ‘no’, it wasn’t a religious one!).
I got back to find a hand-delivered letter a friend had dropped round. It unnerved me a little as I thought the person had completely forgotten about myself, and she did not live so close in any event so must have made a special trip. She was deeply into mediumship and spiritualism when I last saw her, although I didn’t particularly agree with some of the conclusions she was trying to convince me of. Which made the letter intriguing. It didn’t mention any of these, but the fact of unexpected contact again; well, it was just a little unnerving!
I may make contact. But it won’t be yet. I have a hundred and one other things going on at the moment, and I don’t want to make it one hundred and two!
Cat has been back getting me to talk about prison of all things. I suspect he could have been put in a Cattery at one point in his mortal life, and has never quite got over it!
For the moment,
