All the Memes (A lot, anyway)

Hello and welcome to the Pagan Sphinx blog, from which I will be launching my entry to a handful of photo memes I like to participate in. Mainly I post my photos to the Pagan's Eye, as TPS is mostly an art blog. But every once in a while I get a wild hare and switch things around a bit. I thought it would be nice to show my Pagan Sphinx visitors a slice of my surroundings, if they don't usually visit the Pagan's Eye Photo Blog. (Though you should check the haunted house in my neighborhood). 


For those who are not familiar with them, a meme, in this case, is a photo sharing game between bloggers, usually around a specific theme and posted weekly on a consistent day. I'm combining themes in one post:  Sky Watch, Water Wednesday, Yard Art and My World.  Most of these are international and it's always a blast to see other people's lives, their skies, their water and views. 


At the end of the post, all the memes will be linked to their respective sites, should you choose to wander over and see for yourself the gorgeous photographs that people post from around the globe.


Below are some recent shots I took in my front yard in western Massachusetts, on a quiet street with lots of trees and mostly well-preserved houses built in the early 1950's. Our house is across the road from a clearing that shows off a panoramic view of the Connecticut River Valley. I'm not sure that I can ever completely leave this river valley home, despite the harsh winters. 

Have a great weekend.


Peace and love,
Pagan Sphinx 



The same view as above, but from a lot further back. We put up the plastic skeleton every year and the red object in the tree is a birdhouse we bought in Nova Scotia this summer.







And my mums and gourds to keep me company.  ;-)

Emily Dickinson - The Belle of Amherst
"When the Amherst sphinx styled herself a pagan, she meant she didn’t believe in the biblical God. What sort of deity, if any, she did believe in is hard to pinpoint."
-- Gary Sloan, "Emily Dickinson: Pagan Sphinx,"
