* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

I second those congratulations! I gave in at 2:30;


I only made it to 1am but I blame the irrational demands of work expecting me to be there at 8am for my early disembarkation.  I mean, seriously, how do they expect me to goof off if they continue with such heinous calls for over-developed responsibility?
 
Ah well, I'm happy to have a job to complain about :)

The morning dawned to a clear blue sky so I had a bit of concern that I wouldn't find much in the way of good images to bookend with last night's sunset captures.  Well, there was actually a bit of mist this morning and I discovered some great sun rays about half an hour after sunrise.  As before, the thumbnails are clickable.









Reality is but perception.

Thank you for sharing your pictures! There is always something profound about a cemetery and the sun raising on the solstice over it is awesome.
Thanks all for the links and company!

I was fortunate that I did not need to go to work until the late afternoon. My plans were to do a hike to a place I consider sacred and read Celtic prayers, and come back to hang pinecone-peanut butter-sunflower seed feeders out for the birds. The pinecones had been gathered from near the site before, and I just took a handful to leave enough for wildlife needs.

It was a great hike where I mediated on the Holly and Oak Kings and darkness and light, and the bear-strength attributed to the solstice. At the site I was visited by a grumpy squirrel, but that was it and I had a great time reading! I will post some pics (hopefully, I am trying Oaksworn's method for first time). The last one is of a deer for anyone that has a stag/hind/deer as part of their totem and a reminder that often what is there is not easy to see.

OK, didn't work as expected so just posted link to photobucket album.

The bottom three, with the scattering light, are fantabulous!

The first song sets the wheel in motion / The second is a song of love / The third song tells of Her devotion / The fourth cries joy from the sky above
The fifth song binds our fate to silence / and bids us live each moment well / The sixth unleashes rage and violence / The seventh song has truth to tell
The last song echoes through the ages / to ask its question all night long / And close the circle on these pages / These, the metamythos songs

The "icefall" effect is beautiful
