Happy Lughnassah/Lammas Folks. Today we celebrate the harvest, and, by association, the Irish leader and “many skilled one”, Lugh Lamfada. Lugh asked everyone in the community to come together to use their skills to defeat their enemies in the 2nd Battle of Moytura. In the end, he used a spear to pierce the hideous, scorching eye of the monster Balor. If covid was around in the foretime of Ireland, I bet Balor wouldn’t be wearing a mask. Be like Lugh, everyone. Wear a mask, respect science, and know that we are all in this together.
