Cook for the Sun, bake for the Moon. This is what we do...
It has never been an intentional or conscious gesture, but rather something organically derived, this cooking for the Sun. As we prepared our dinner foods that evening, it occurred to me that this is just how we do these things. All our Solar observances involve creating a special meal together & then of course, sharing it. For the Moon, there is nothing I enjoy more than devising a sweet treat & pairing it with just the right libation, but now is the season of the Sun. Cook we must.
How this inadvertent way of doing things came to pass, I cannot know, but this is what we do. It works.
