Weekly Draw: Celtic Book of the Dead ~ Rainbow Stream Island
The twenty-forth card in the Voyage of Maelduin takes us to the Rainbow stream. An island that offered, simply for the taking, a constant stream of salmon. The wonderment comes in, not at finding food readily available, but that is was never ending bounty of the earth.
I'm reminded by this card of the goodness at hand this time of the year. The garden is giving up the most wonderful carrots I've ever eaten, fresh beans off the vine, combined in the steamer pan with little four to five inch zucchini, heavenly. The leaf, head, and butter lettuces and the tomatoes. The ear corn and winter squashes that come soon. The beauty of the gladiolus and sunflowers tucked in here and there. A calming peaceful relaxing place, that reminds me pharmaceuticals to fight cancer are only the tip of the island...there's a world of natural helps every where I look.
Last night we had three small zucchini for dinner that were grown within fifty feet of our back door.
I estimate they cost somewhere in the neighborhood of $371.49 each. ~ Andy Rooney 1911-2011
