I’m sat here with lots of whirling thoughts in my head.. The moon is in Cancer today conjunct my Jupiter in my third house. (any astrology buffs out there know what that means) In plainer terms it means I’m moved to communicate (commune) deeply (Cancer is a water sign associated with feelings). The conjunction of Jupiter only heightens those feelings and expands them. The third house is to do with your local environment and communication. It’s easy for me to write stuff so all this blogging I do comes pretty naturally for me. I work in fits and starts and always on inspiration. I prefer not to force it as it just doesn’t feel good.
The name Easter is derived from the Saxon Eostre (Eastre) The Ancient Saxons in Northern Europe worshipped the Goddess Osetre at the time of The Spring Equinox. The Goddess represents the sunrise, Spring-time fertility and the renewal of life.
I’ve neglected posting about Gus over the last few months and that will now be addressed
I’ve been so distracted by many other things
Today is international Women’s Day and I’ve posted this everywhere as it’s just so lovely
“Nunca creí en el machismo. Mi mundo está rodeado de mujeres. Todos vivimos gracias a una mujer. Su luz y su vida nos trajo acá, ¿Por qué debería minimizarlas entonces?…Al contrario, son más especiales que nosotros”. (Gustavo Cerati – Diario La Razón 1988)
Feliz día a esas amigas, hermanas, madres, abuelas! Feliz día mujeres! 🙂
Sitting here with Paddington Bear at Paddington Station in London I’ve always had a fascination for trains and stations. My favourite station is Paddington. I love the architecture, the expanse of the place and the ambient yet buzzy vibe the place has.
I love watching all the people, busily going from A to B, stopping along the way for a coffee and a bite to eat.I’ve spent the last four days in London, sitting in cafes just relaxing the afternoons away drinking lots of coffee (I love soya cappuccinos), eating vegan cupcakes, wandering around, going to galleries, on an Access Consciousness bars course – (see this post about that) and generally having a little holiday.
Birmingham German Christmas Market ~ Dec 2010
I went to the Birmingham Christmas Market a few weeks ago, on a random trip to Brum, surprise from some friends 😀 I even got to see the new Harry Potter movie. It was when we had our first snowfalls, oh I thought that was the end of it… (still snowy!) I love German bread, have done since I went to München (Munich) in 1997. So was looking forward to visiting the Christmas market.
I love to cook though I have been busy with other things. I have felt inspired of late and have a little more time to cook so here are my efforts. Any decent cook will tell you that having good equipment does help a lot, I don’t need that much, but decent flan dishes, bowls to mix ingredients some good scales, a liquidiser and a blender all help make cooking a meal a lot easier.
