'Tis the Season..... 😊🎃 👻 🎃😊

 
'Tis the Season...!  'Tis (nearly) October...!  'Tis the time for fun...!   Or, for some, 'tis the time for averting their eyes...  🎃 👻 🎃  Like the painting above, called "What We See," our reaction to this Season, all depends on what we see.
 
✨ 🍁 ✨ 🎃 ✨ 🍁 ✨
If you are an "averting eyes" person, I fully understand!!!  I was brought up, to be *scared-silly* of all things Halloween.   Brought up with an inbred fear of witches, and any depiction of them.  So I understand.
 
✨ 🍁 ✨ 🎃 ✨ 🍁 ✨
But thankfully, after I was *very-fully-grown*, and gave myself permission, to question what I had been taught...   I was able to Net-meet witches,  and seek true history.  I  found them to be ordinary men/women like me.  They had certain beliefs, different than mine.   But basically, we liked each other.
 
✨ 🍁 ✨ 🎃 ✨ 🍁 ✨
I happen to prefer depictions of witches, like Lady Tor's art work.  I do not care for depicting them as ugly.   I feel it is a remnant of the early church's push, to scare church goers.   And thus, do not want to be any part, of that old *ugginess.*
  
✨ 🍁 ✨ 🎃 ✨ 🍁 ✨
No, I am not Pagan.  Nor do I depict myself as a witch.  That would be appropriating something, in which I do not believe.  But I have no problem with enjoying,  that which does not include belief.   And paying attention to the turning of the wheel of the year...  The seasons....   And trying to live, in company with them... Is something which has been dear to me, for a long time.

In fact, it is probably what brought me to investigate witches and paganism, in the first place!!!!!    A lot of moderns don't really pay attention to the changing seasons.   Oh they may decorate their houses, for each season.   But many, don't try to live their lives, in accordance with them.   To me, it seems wise, to do so. As it does, to pagans.

Autumn...Healthy Eating.....Food.....Yeeeeeeeeek!!!!!!

✨ 🍁 ✨ 🎃 ✨ 🍁 ✨  🍁 ✨ 🎃 ✨ 🍁 ✨  🍁 ✨ 🎃 ✨ 🍁 ✨ 🎃 ✨ 
Doesn't 'Brambly Hedge' do the Seasons, wonderfully?
.

It's so nice, to have blue skies with white clouds again....
.
 .
My body has been telling me, that I'm not eating properly, again.   So I got down this book, which prompts me to return to eating Real Food.   :-)
.
.
Thursday, I had my regular 4 month check-up.  Asked about Flu Shots, for both of us.   Our doctor said; "Yesterday, I would have said wait till Oct.  But the local hospital called and said the ER has gotten cases of Flu already.  So yes, you will get your Flu Shots today."... And we did.
.
.
The Flu is here!!!!    -sigh-  Another reason to really work on eating in as healthy a way, as possible.   And to stock up on healthy food.   Organic produce...  And "happy meat/chicken"....   As I call free range, grass fed, which we can get a a local 'Healthy Living Market.'
.
.
Above is a pic of the delicious Stuffed Peppers we had last night.   It took a bit of prep time, but we both pitched in, and the result was yummmmmmmmmmm!!!!!  Which goes to show, that Real Food, can be delightful. 
.

Have you heard about Flu, in your area, yet?
