All Hail Lord Enlil!
All Hail Inana!
All Hail Theophrastus!
Hail Saint Non,
Born 400s – Died 500s in Wales. They say Nonna, as this was another name she was known by, was the mother of the Patron Saint of Wales, St. David. These days they say the child was the product of a ‘rape’, remember though, this has also meant abduction in distant days.
They say one day a preacher found himself unable to preach in the presence of Nonna who was carrying a future Saint in her belly. This was a sure sign the child was to become ‘a great preacher’, said he.
They say St. David is associated with Corpse Candles, one explaination for this is that he prayed for a sign for people who were on their way to worship at E Resh ki gal’s holy feet, so that they may properly prepare.
They say this entailed the sighting of a light (usually blue) foretelling a tragedy or death to come. The light would appear in a graveyard and set forth showing the way.
Note: On the day her son was born En-lil’s friends uttered, thus avoiding an ‘unjust death’.

A Witch Walked Into A Bar
21st June 2016
I trust this day finds you well and your mind clear and bright. I’ll not spend too long today as the messengers will be setting off soon and I daren’t miss them. Maybe a day either way, please forgive me…
…she stopped at the tavern on her way home to fill one of the flasks she had with her with ale, a reward before rest as she believes is her excuse.
The Watchers were the first to notice the woman enter the tavern, as would be expected. They stayed silent. The Guides were next and they bid her “good evening” as she passed near. “Good evening” was her response and she passed the flask to the barkeep, no words were offered and none were returned, they’d done business together many times. She waited.
The barkeep passed the flask (which was made of clay and painted dark crimson) to the maid and she headed towards the cellar hatch. Down she went. The barkeep brushed away some imaginary dust off the bar and inquired of the woman, “Good Eve?” She looked him square in the eyes and said, “Nay.” The barkeep pondered on the news a moment. The maid returned with the flask and handed it to the barkeep. She returned to her stool and waited to serve.
The ones around the table nearest the fire were watching the exchange at the bar, making sure not to miss a thing. The barkeep allowed a little time for those ill-suited to hearing the next words, to depart to various exits.
He handed the filled flask back to her, no token of payment exchanged hands. “Just the usual?” He asked as he moved his hand to brush away an imaginary curl from the middle of his forehead. “Nay,” she responded and walked to the exit. She didn’t turn as she got to the heavy oak door, “Keeper: Reckon how much I owe. We’ll all need to know soon enough.” She closed the door behind her and against the looming South Wind.
A few people around the tavern, mostly locals but a few of the others started to make a list in their minds. The barkeep started two, one for the storekeeper and a hastily started one for himself, the others would have to wait.
The Seekers looked to the Teachers and before they could speak, the Teachers raised their right hands to halt them. “Before you ask any questions, think about what you saw. See the signs and understand the words. Reflect.” said they…
I’ll write soon I promise.
P.S. Now that I can spare a moment for you. I hope the image I chose for us makes it through with the passage of time. I know you will follow, there are plenty of messages. I’ll bury a piece of it when I figure out where, you’ll love the story behind it, but I’ll have to wait and see if you’re ready to hear it. 22/06/16
P.P.S. St. John’s Eve currently 21:32, might go and check the reading, New Testament’s usually a good read (been hammering the Old Stuff lately ‘n my head’s in a whirl), I’ll come back later. Found a nice new link today (withy). Just been to check the reading and it stops at 21.25 heh. Revelation it is!

The 36th Reading
Beha’alot’cha “When you ascend”.
2 ‘Make thee two trumpets of silver; of beaten work shalt thou make them; and they shall be unto thee for the calling of the congregation, and for causing the camps to set forward.
3 And when they shall blow with them, all the congregation shall gather themselves unto thee at the door of the tent of meeting.
4 And if they blow but with one, then the princes, the heads of the thousands of Israel, shall gather themselves unto thee.
5 And when ye blow an alarm, the camps that lie on the east side shall take their journey.
6 And when ye blow an alarm the second time, the camps that lie on the south side shall set forward; they shall blow an alarm for their journeys.

2:14 ‘Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion; for, lo, I come, and I will dwell in the midst of thee, saith the LORD.
2:17 Be silent, all flesh, before the LORD; for He is aroused out of His holy habitation.
3:1 And he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the LORD, and Satan standing at his right hand to accuse him.
3:7 ‘Thus saith the LORD of hosts: If thou wilt walk in My ways, and if thou wilt keep My charge, and wilt also judge My house, and wilt also keep My courts, then I will give thee free access among these that stand by.
3:8 Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, thou and thy fellows that sit before thee; for they are men that are a sign; for, behold, I will bring forth My servant the Shoot.
6:12 and speak unto him, saying: Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying: Behold, a man whose name is the Shoot, and who shall shoot up out of his place, and build the temple of the LORD;

Inverted: These Days (23/06/16). Future Days – Book Three – Numbers: 11
Numbers 10:35 And it came to pass, when the ark set forward, that Moses said: ‘Rise up, O LORD, and let Thine enemies be scattered; and let them that hate Thee flee before Thee.’
Numbers 10:36 And when it rested, he said: ‘Return, O LORD, unto the ten thousands of the families of Israel.’
22 And let them offer the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare His works with singing.
23 They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters–
24 These saw the works of the LORD, and His wonders in the deep;
25 For He commanded, and raised the stormy wind, which lifted up the waves thereof;
26 They mounted up to the heaven, they went down to the deeps; their soul melted away because of trouble;
27 They reeled to and fro, and staggered like a drunken man, and all their wisdom was swallowed up–
28 They cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and He brought them out of their distresses.
29 He made the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof were still.

The first time I heard about the ‘Three Rs’ was at school back in the early 70s, the teacher wrote the three sacred words on the blackboard in white chalk and proceeded to explain what they meant.
I must confess I probably missed the first few sentences due to the fact I was a bit surprised (and disappointed) to see my beloved teacher in whom I had the greatest faith had made a mistake. The words on the board clearly stated:
I was just double checking when she called out my name and asked why I was ‘gawping off into space’. She gave me ‘the look’ which always and forever will mean, ‘Do not test me, you will not win.’ So test her I did not and apologised, assuming I’d made a mistake and all would be rectified soon.
As you can imagine, the situation only got worse…
R is for Redeem
