If you have followed me for any length of time, you most likely are aware of my book obsession. I do love to read; there are certain book series which I am passionate about. One of my most favorite and beloved series are the Outlander books by Diana Gabaldon. Loaded with Scottish characters and history (I am of Scottish heritage on my father's side), it is a great historical, sci-fi adventure, romance, dramatic series. There are currently 7 books in the series, with an 8th due to be published this coming Spring. But what is even more fabulous, is that the Starz cable channel is producing a 16-episode series based on the first book. Thrilled to bits, I am, but also a little worried about casting and treatment of the book. I am a rabid fan after all, and will be most displeased if, in my own selfish opinion, the actors and story are wrong!!! At least it is being filmed in Scotland, thankfully. Read the books!!

The Autumnal Equinox is less than two weeks away!! Celebrated as "Mabon" among Wiccans and pagans, this is a turning point, so to speak, on the Wheel of the Year. Bidding farewell to the summer season is often hard, especially if one lives in wintry climes, realizing that the icy days are coming. Already we are losing daylight and here in central New York we have had some coolish nights. Still, autumn is a beautiful season and a favorite of many of us witchy types.
