Greetings to all folks near and far.
This has been a gorgeous autumn here in Washoe Valley. The colors of leaves are brighter and more vibrant than ever. With winter storms already beginning to come in, we take every possible chance to drive around just to enjoy the changing landscape and take pictures of the trees.
Do you ever wonder what people in other countries believe about life and their spirituality, myths and legends? How about the people that are rarely in the news and not often visited by tourists from afar?
The Australian aboriginals have a very interesting and complex system of their ancestral beliefs. It is fascinating to read about.
Here is my latest article from the Folklore and Mythology site at BellaOnline.com.
Australian Aboriginal Dreamtime - Sacred Era
The ancient mythology of the Aranda people is still adhered to today and is closely tied in to their spirituality. This belief is called the Dreamtime.
I invite you to read about these people and their Dreamtime, then join me and others in the Folklore and Mythology forum for a discussion about this article. I would love to meet you and read about your thoughts.
Half the world is composed of people who have something to say and can't, and the other half who have nothing to say and keep on saying it.

Till next time, an old Irish blessing for you and yours:
May you always have
Walls for the winds,
A roof for the rain,
Tea beside the fire,
Laughter to cheer you,
Those you love near you,
And all your heart might desire.
May you walk in peace and harmony.
