 “The first flash of color always excites me as much as the first frail, courageous bloom of spring. This is, in a sense, my season--sometimes warm and, when the wind blows an alert, sometimes cold. But there is a clarity about September. On clear days, the sun seems brighter, the sky more blue, the white clouds take on marvelous shapes; the moon is a wonderful apparition, rising gold, cooling to silver; and the stars are so big. The September storms--the hurricane warnings far away, the sudden gales, the downpour of rain that we have so badly needed here for so long--are exhilarating, and there's a promise that what September starts, October will carry on, catching the torch flung into her hand.”
~Faith Baldwin, Evening Star~

 

 “We know that in September, we will wander through the warm winds 
of summer's wreckage. We will welcome summer's ghost.”
~Heny Rollins~

but the days grow short when you reach September."

“Ah, September! You are the doorway to the season that awakens my soul... 
but I must confess that I love you only because you are a prelude to my beloved October.”

Warning, I'm bored

Changes are afoot.

I haven't known where I'm going with this blog for a long time. I don't like what it's become as it's not me anymore, not sure it ever was completely. Those who know me know my Aspi brain likes things in themes and order. This blog has moved far from its origins and I’ve had tried to get it back but I’ve slowly come to realised that in the time I’ve had this blog I’ve also moved on. I've tried to make it traditional witchy as it once was but my heart keeps leaping into flights of fancy too often to keep that up. I've tried to make it all whimsy Halloween and fantasy but I have qualms of about witches just being linked with Halloween. I keep trying to get away and start different blogs, but I always drift back here, this is home. Some of my new blogs I like and will stay, they fit different themes like my dolls and crafting which can move from here to be just use as and when but I'm still back here, searching for an everyday blogging home, a home that represents me, not a stereotype public image of a witch.

I keep taking posts out, then putting them back in, trying different looks. I love the colour black but I'll never be a truly dark witch even if it matches my mood perfectly sometimes. Black makes a dash of colour dance. I like vintage and modern. My heart and soul was born witchy. I treasure the old ways, yet also happy to dance with the new. This witchy home needs to either move into the 21st century, mix old and new and come complete with cactus, dinosaurs and flamingo's if it's going to represent me. Time to redecorate, move this blog forward and take another of these damn masks off. I wear so many trying to fit in with everyone else it gets tiring.

Hopefully someone may still visit. Lots of changing and redecorating ahead.



Edit - No, this blog still isn't working for me, no matter how I fiddle about with the name I just can't seem to combine all I want into one blog, a bright a side of me with my internal love of darkness along side fantasy and spiritual side.. My aspi brain refuses to accept the mix. Going to have to rethink.

Happy Post 2 and Sussex Love.

I had a surprise package from Debi of Puddleduck Grange yesterday, still haven't stop smiling about it. It's nice to get happy post, especially when it wasn't expected. She sent me this lovely hand knitted scarf and gloves, so I'm all set to face the cold weather now. The colour was just perfect, orange so bright, full of the joys of Autumn and happiness.


I also can't resist sharing this magazine cover. I don't normally buy the Country Life magazine but how could I resist with this handsome boy modeling on the cover. It's got a very good article on Sussex Spaniels inside and it's so rare they get a mention anywhere I had to buy the issue.


I also picked up my dolls house magazines which I'll cover in another post this week. I'll finish this post with a photo of my very own Sussex lad.

Dinosaur Britain TV program

Dinosaur Britain is on ITV tonight at 9pm, a set of two programs with the second episode on tomorrow night, at 8pm. Most previous programs on dinosaurs have concentrated on the ones found elsewhere in the world, hopeful this program will do something to redress that balance and raise some interest in our home grown dinos. This is the news quote about the program.

Dinosaurs! The very word conjures up fascination and intrigue with millions of us dreaming of becoming a palaeontologist when we were younger. Yet few of us realise that over 50 different dinosaur species have been found in Britain.
Dinosaur Britain tells the amazing story of many of the dinosaurs that once roamed our country revealing how they hunted, what they ate and how they died from the evidence revealed from their bones.
Presenter Ellie Harrison, who fell in love with dinosaurs as a child, teams up with 25‐year‐old Dean Lomax, one of Britain’s youngest palaeontologists, to bring Dinosaur Britain to life as never before. Ellie and Dean come ‘face to face’ with incredible CGI dinosaurs against the backdrop of some of Britain’s most famous landmarks – including Big Ben and Stonehenge.
Britain has yielded one of the best dinosaur fossil records anywhere in the world. Giant Sauropods measuring over 20 metres – the length of two double decker buses – once lived throughout Britain.
Raptors, fast moving and carnivorous pack‐hunters, were discovered in Dorset – along with three types of Tyrannosaur. Huge teeth from the Iguanodon were discovered in Sussex while stegosaurs, with armoured plates positioned along their back, lived in Swindon and Peterborough.
From the world’s first dinosaur discovery in Stonesfield, Oxfordshire in 1824 to the most recent discovery – a new dinosaur species discovered in Wales in 2014 – Dinosaur Britain features the most fascinating dinosaur finds across Britain to tell an enthralling story 200 million years in the making.
