    • Six Lessons From Genghis Khan’s Victories

There’s a big fire festival on Calton Hill in Edinburgh every year with a procession of the May Queen to meet her Green Man. They are accompanied by Elementals representing fire, earth, air and water. The pictures are spectacular and it looks like everyone has a good time, running around half naked with bodies painted from head to toe.

You don’t need to be a pagan to appreciate nature and the change in seasons. I’m a water worshipper.

“And Flint still doesn’t have clean water”

I looked for Beltane songs online. A recommendation was “I Touch Myself” by the DiVinyls, which, I have to admit really taps into the spirit of Beltane but I think I’ll save that one for tonight.

Ahem.

Anyway, this one is pretty good for we water elementals out there.

Happy Beltane. Get your pagan on.
