On an evening that marked no special commemoration, three friends met together for the simple purpose of enjoying one another’s company. At the “toasts” stage of their shared meal, one of the three with mock solemnity declared,
The past is past:
The die is cast!
Another of the three countered this at once with,
The present is present:
It’s happy and pleasant!
By J. Whitehead, N. A. of Lodge No. 135, Glodwick near Oldham.
Read before a Delegate Meeting, held at Middleton Sept. 20th. 1829

How can tarot possibly relate to Druid practice? Isn’t tarot the end-of-the-pier fortune telling for the gullible?
Sadly, it can be but cut through the veneer of tall, dark, handsome strangers and you find an amazing way of connecting to spirit, your higher self, the ancestors. Tarot is endlessly flexible.

When we walk into a carefully nurtured and diverse garden, we are struck by its beauty and its sense of completeness. We are enraptured by its scents and its mysteries. We are enlivened by its colours, both vivid and subtle, and we are nourished by the freshness that fills our lungs.

It was the full moon before the summer solstice this morning, a good day to go and do some earth healing. I caught the train into Berlin to visit the Brandenburg Gate. Coming up from the underground station I was met with the busy noise of summer tourism, concrete pavements, the American embassy and a scaffolding company erecting a fenced off stage right around the gate for some concert. I wondered how I would be able to find any quiet to meet this place.
