Mabon

Equinox is here
Day and night in true balance
Winter is coming

Yes, it's the Autumn equinox. And I'm in shorts.

I had a slightly spooky moment when I opened up S M Stirling's A Meeting At Corvallis this morning to finish it; the Epilogue is subtitled

Dun Juniper, Willamette Valley, Oregon
September 22nd 2008/Change Year 10[1]

It's nearly as weird as when I read Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six during the Sydney Olympics.

[1] As it happens, it's a Wiccan ceremony, which is why it's on the equinox. The odd thing is me finishing the book on exactly the day that it finishes. Apart from the fact that The Change never happened of course.
