Lughnasa and the Labor Day Moon
Sunday gratefuls: The Ancient friends. Health. Healthspan. Working out. Cool weather. Low humidity and dewpoint. Extreme fire weather. Rain yesterday and Friday. Stress.
Drifting to sleep, roaming places that reached into my heart. In no particular order:
Delos, the small Greek island where Apollo and Artemis were born
Delphi, home to the Delphic Oracle in the Temple of Apollo
Ephesus, the most complete Roman city I’ve seen. Near Patmos. The grave of John the Evangelist is there. Maybe.
The Chilean Fjords. 120 miles of islands, ocean, and glaciers.
Ushuaia. The furthest south city in the Americas.
Angkor Wat, temples of the Khmer devi-rajas, God-Kings.
The Maglev train in Korea
The Forbidden City and the Great Wall
The Sistine Chapel
St. Deniol’s Residential library
Winifred’s Holy Well
Shadow Mountain and its neighbors
Bangkok’s China Town and its night restaurants on the sidewalks
Minneapolis and St. Paul
The Panama Canal
Mexico City: the zocalo and Garibaldi Square and Xochimilco and the Anthropology Museum
