Picture of the day

Lightning bolts illuminate the ash cloud from the Puyehue-Cordon Caulle volcanic chain in Chile. Photographer Ricardo A. Mohr Rioseco's images, taken on 5 June, have recently won plaudits from National Geographic. He explains: 'They were taken on at 21:30, two days after the beginning of the Caulle volcano eruption. It was very loud and dark in the night but I decided to find a good place to take some picture of the eruption at night. The power of the eruption and the lightning was very frightening, but the pictures obtained were able to reflect all the energy that we have under our feet.' Monica Corcoran, National Geographic senior photo editor, said of the images: 'Sometimes taking a step back makes all the difference. Instead of zooming in on the eruption, the photographer wisely chose to show all of the layers, complexity, and power of nature.'

I am Pagan, a Witch, a Healer, Mystic & Dreamer. I live in Service to the One. I will Protect & Respect Her bounties to my last breath. I am a Seeker of Truth, a Reformer, A Historian - an Advocate for Religious Freedom, Tolerance & Human Rights. I am a Protector of Animals & Children & those less fortunate than myself. I am a Reader & a Writer - an Artist. I am a Drummer, Gardener & Cook. I listen to the Wisdom of the Ancients. If you take a copy of the Christian Bible and put it out in the wind and the rain, soon the paper on which the words are printed will disintegrate and the words will be gone. Our bible IS the wind and the rain." Herbalist Carol McGrath as told to her by a Native-American woman. "When one defines oneself as Pagan, it means she or he follows an earth or nature religion, one that sees the divine manifest in all creation. The cycles of nature are our holy days, the earth is our temple, its plants and creatures our partners and teachers. We worship a deity that is both male and female, a mother Goddess and father God, who together created all that is, was, or will be. We respect life, cherish the free will of sentient beings, and accept the sacredness of all creation." Edain McCoy View all posts by pagan66
