gathered the birds
and began to speak to them tenderly
God had given them air
sing, he told them,
for song is the praise to God
from the hearts of his children.
October 5th is the Feast Day of Saint Francis of Assisi. No matter what your belief stucture, he is a crucial figure to western civilzation, indeed world culture, because of his huge love for the Creation and the Creator, preferring not to pick one or the other.
Enter the Chapel of Saint Franscis and complete a soothing guided imagery.
The idea of acknowledging St Franscis and his Feast Day came from Calm Eagle
Ebony Wilder, the Abbey Housekeeper, who sometimes transforms into the swashbuckling Captain Wilder, has put on a luncheon for travellers who have begun to arrive in the Abbey. Rumours abound that Ebony operates a smuggling ring and that she has connections to dubious seafaring types from China who purport to have bottled the exilir of creativity. Sounds plausible to me!

Dream Seeds for the Abbey
by Heather Blakey
Travellers will recall that le Enchanteur marked New Year by planting Dream Seeds at Riversleigh Manor
She told people to choose a blank seed packet from the box on the table in the garden shed.
More dream seeds are available for residents in the Abbey. There will be enough for everyone.
Take the time to reflect and consider what you hope will blossom from your work in the Abbey. Design the seed packet, label it and plant one of Enchanteur’s dream seeds into a pot filled with some of the composted soil they have down in the greenhouse.
Go out and buy a small pot and plant some seeds. Put this in a sunny spot and ake care of it over the coming months. Keep a record of the seed’s journey. At the same time look for signs that the seed you planted in the pot in the Abbey is flourishing as well.

The Abbey is filled with all sorts of curiousities, curious things, curious corners. It is just a matter of investigating to find them all.
