As the Wheel of the Years turns, the cycles of the seasons

play out; we rest and sow, we nourish and harvest.These cycles

of the year and of our lives are the stuff of myth and story.

Each season whether it be under the harvest moon, near

winter's  hearth, or tucked into a star stitched summer evening,

begs a tale told. Whether you are looking to plan a big public

event or a small inimate, private affair a handful of tales can

be as rich as gold and as inspiring as the wisdom of sages.

Winter Tales

In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.  ~ Albert Camus


Winter, which, being full of care, makes summer's welcome thrice more wish'd, more rare.  ~William Shakespeare


When there's snow on the ground, I like to pretend I'm walking on clouds.  ~ Takayuki Ikkaku, Arisa Hosaka and Toshihiro Kawabata,



Into the Haunted Forest

halloween tales to spook & delight



'Tis now the very witching time of night,
When churchyards yawn and hell itself breathes out Contagion to this world.   

                                       ~William Shakespeare


'Tis the night — the night
Of the grave's delight,
And the warlocks are at their play;
Ye think that without
The wild winds shout,
But no, it is they — it is they.  

~Arthur Cleveland Coxe


A gypsy fire is on the hearth, Sign of the carnival of mirth; Through the dun fields and from the glade. Flash merry folk in masquerade, For this is Hallowe'en!   ~Author Unknown
