Lots of the folk and groups that come to visit called the big glass-topped coffee table in the living room magic, because just what they wanted to know about is there somewhere.
It seems more eclectic than usual today.? I actually had stuff on top of Prescription for Nutritional Healing, the book I believe everyone should have, now in its fifth edition.? There are 3 Irish books on different sides of the table, scattered.? Cindy Matyi’s wonderful Little Town of Spirals, How the Irish Saved Civilization, and Cathal Liam’s Fear Not the Storm, about the Irish civil war in the 20’s.
Franz Stiene’s The Japanese Art of Reiki is side by side with Paul Krugman’s End This Depression Now, one so serene, the other bright and demanding.? Two kids’ Halloween books are one on top of the other – Feathertop and The House that Drac Built.? David Maraniss’ book on President Obama is on one of the corners.? Underneath the table is a bunch of un-read City Beats – I want to look at the restaurant recommendations, the feature story and Tom Tomorrow’s cartoon before I recycle them.? On the very top is the deck of Goddess Guidance cards, with Aine, Leap of Faith, looking out and facing the world.
As we get into the holidays, many of those books will disappear, to be replaced by Christmas favorites.? The Wheel of the Year is definitely turning.
