The Mushrooms of Inspiration


Happy Lughnasadh (or Lammas) to those of you who celebrate it :)
You can read about it here and here.
Today is very...as we say...auspicious. Not only is is Lughnasadh, but it is Day 17 of the 19 Candles for Brighid, and my day to hold the Candle of St. Brighid
(as you can read about here), and those days are always full of inspiration, inner-desires coming to the surface, and a kind of "full-moon" quality for me.
Inspiration, which is said to come as a fire from deep within, has seemed to come to me more like this little mushroom...something coming out of nothing, needing loads of water and a certain amount of shade to pop up. Mushrooms are linked to the Full-Moon for me...could be the shape of the cap, and the color, or the fact that they come out of cool, shady spots...
I'm not sure if I can explain the connection, as it comes straight from my GREEN HEART.
But, today has been the day of all sorts of inspiring thoughts coming to the surface...I've wanted to make these necklaces, and crochet, and have been planning the colors to paint my kids' rooms, and thinking about creative scheduling and planning for the year,
playing in my garden and talking to my tomatoes (which have made one tiny green bubble - joy!!!)
