Summer moves into September

31 August, 2015

August draws to a close, leaving GenCon and most of Summer behind, hopefully seeing the last of Summer’s heatwave as well.  September, which is seventh month of the Roman calendar, does not seem to have any particular ties to myth or man among the Romans, however,  as Seven is usually viewed as a magical number, magic and spells will be our theme for this month.   Please let me know if there is anything you would like to see.

I will be out of town in early September to visit my mother and Washington, DC.   May or may not be able to reply much while I am there but I will certainly have news to share when I return.
