Bardic Lessons

So forgot the most interesting lesson of all today which came from my bardic studies — the one on mixing fire and water. MEAD. The lesson this week was to experiment with the mixture of fire and water as express in the drink of Mead. You get a fire in a belly through drinking the water. Evidently, Mead (which is the product of fermented honey) is a traditional drink in in every continent. Many cultures 6000 years ago drank mead. Recipes come from England, South America, Africa, Egypt, China, and other locals. So I told Bob we should add the study of Mead to our solstice celebrations. He’s amenable. We may cheat and go to BevMo to buy a bottle along with a variety of different beers.


Author: Heres to ART not Cockroaches

Welcome to my life. My life as a mom is changing as the kids grow up, leave home, and build their own lives. This gives me a chance to rebuild myself as an artist, develop a spiritual path, and most fun of all, start going out on dates with my husband. Come here the stories about the small things in life that can make one very happy. Dogs running on a beach, great breakfast dates, kids and their adventures, and my own adventures in this wacky life. I'll share some of my progress in learning art while juggling a full time job as an engineer. And best of all, it's a chance for me to practice writing stories while keeping in touch with my kids. I look forward to hearing from you. Comments, thoughts, and invitations to meet for coffee are all welcomed. Enjoy the stories.
