OBOD’s A Druid Glossary

A year or two ago I posted a item called A Druid’s Glossary. Then late last year I posted an update to it stating that was created by  The Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids (OBOD). I have deleted that post. And I have posted as its own page on my blog. Its own page, not its own post.  The page is titled The Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids A Druid Glossary.

Please be sure to give it a once over….

Nine Blessings!


Earth as transformer 

SpirallingLeaf - A Druid crafter's tales

​In the Northern Hemisphere, at this verdant time of year it can be all to easy to forget about the soil beneath our feet. In fact the only time we see bare soil at this time of year is when it is freshly disturbed; within weeks, though, this softly broken earth will be flourishing with fresh leaves as nature paints a green blanket over the fertile soil. This is one of the wonders that I’d like to talk about here – that bare soil usually doesn’t stay bare for too long. You see soil is very much alive and the life within it has evolved to be buried.

If we took a heaped teaspoon of fresh topsoil and peered at it incredibly closely we’d notice that there were all manners of tiny critters in there – little beetles, mites and wiggly wormy things… If we upped the magnification substantially, we’d…

Truth Against The World #9

Its July of 2016. President Obama’s tenure as President of the United States America is almost over. And open season on police officers has been declared. These are not gun nuts who stockpile weapons for the zombie apocalypse or armageddon. These are out raged individuals over the killings of individuals whose only crime was the color of their skin. And this is not in their defense.
Donald Trump who is painting himself as a racist, a bigot and a homophobe, is running for president. His father had ties with the Ku Klux Klan (KKK). He (Donald) is a fear monger. A hate monger. A lot of people are flocking to him because they agree or sympathize with the message he sends. He speaks of race, of fear and hatred. He is trying to destroy what has been built in in race relations in the last fifty years. Everybody in America assumes that after the Civil Rights march in the 1960’s by Martin Luther King, all of America’s Race issues and racial divide was healed. That all was right with the world. Nothing could be farther from the truth. If you believe that, you have been living a pipe dream that has been shrouded from reality.
Hillary Clinton is the ( official ) Democratic Party Nominee. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont has not yet conceded the presidential race to any body. With his endorsement of Hillary Clinton, Dr. Jill Stein of the Green Party has experienced a influx of donations by 1000%. Hillary is still facing a uphill battle, even though she was endorsed by Bernie. She might make it to the White House, but the question is who will be in the DRIVERS SEAT? Will the driver be Hillary or Bill Clinton? And why is she so desperate to be the first female president? Why does she feel or believe she is the one destined to be the first American Female President???
Dr. Jill Stein of the Green Party. I will admit I do not know much about Jill Stein or The Green Party she represents and leads. But as I mentioned above, donations have increased up to 1000% to The Green Party. However, say what you will about Jill Stein, she is now one of the most powerful women in America, politically. If Senator Bernie Sanders from Vermont has told both his delegates and followers to get behind Jill Stein, we may be in for an interesting election come November.
In closing, I offer you these thoughts. What if Trump is running not to win. But to prove a point, to prove he could make it if he wanted too. To prove Americans will vote for anybody who can and will play to their bigotry and fears. But that people who will listen to him, will vote for like minded individuals in their states to Congress.  And that Trump chose Pence because he (Pence) is Trump’s very own Sarah Palin? And now for some thinking outside the box. What if Senator Bernie Sanders endorsed HRC to to stay in the presidential race? That he never conceded the race because he wanted his supporters ( and his delegates) to get behind Jill Stein and the Green Party? Professor Cornell West has thrown his support behind Jill Stein, a man who supported Bernie. So here is my conclusion. Senator Bernie Sanders endorsed HRC to stay in the race since he did not concede or suspend his race. That said, I believe Bernie told Cornell West, his supporters and his delegates to get behind Jill Stein. The Reason? Simple. Since Bernie did not concede the race, he knew he could not beat both Donald Trump and/or HRC. But with everybody who supported him now behind Jill Stein. Bernie could still be in the race. With Bernie either as President or Vice President with the support of the Green Party.
