“Reason clears and plants the wilderness of the imagination to harvest the wheat of art.”

~ Austin O’Malley

The Autumnal Equinox is fast upon us. A most excellent occasion. A dreamy Time of harvest and moons and amber waves of grain… of some great tunes…

I call myself a “wheat-head” I Love the stuff so. I mean, it is some kind of gilded beautiful, hey? I can’t adequately impress upon you how spectacular I think fields of wheat and the prairie are. I just can’t. Words won’t suffice, baby.

It’s symbolic of such a great deal of what I feel is intrinsically important to existence: heart, art, the prairie, farmers (the backbone of society, for food is life), literal and figurative seeds, the myths of Demeter and Ceres… the Autumnal Equinox

It signals a Time for winding down, giving thanks, preparing for Halloween and the big sleep of winter.

Not much makes me feel more autumn, more Canadian, more prairie, more “wheat-head” than this man and this tune. This is a very sweet, intimate performance by a very, very young Neil appearing on the BBC.

From Harvest, the best selling album of 1972 in the United States (Who knew?!), here’s Heart of Gold…

    • Shucks, thanks, baby! 💋

      The wheat IS pretty, darned glorious! Yet always eclipsed by other more vibrant and apparent aspects of autumn? I LOVE an underrated underdog, too! And how!

      Sorry I don’t get to your blog as often as I’d like. 😊

      I’m so glad you liked my post.

      Hope you had an awesome weekend! 💋
