22/09/2010 - Autumn Equinox Itinerary

Sunrise: 6:46 am

Sunset: 6:59 pm

Sunrise. Beat the bounds of Parson's Wood. We might see the sun this time, as the forecast is for fair weather. Once the bounds have been well and truly beaten we'll return to Johnny's for a breakfast of mainly mushrooms.

Mid-morning. We'll begin the Book of the Woods, a volume which we plan to leave somewhere rain-proof once it's half-filled, so that other people can contribute to it.

Lunchtime. A stroll to the clootie tree to replenish ribbons and tags, followed by a picnic at Johnny's house and readings from Vita Sackville-West's The Land and Italo Calvino's Invisible Cities.

Sunset. Create a sukkah in the woods, and watch the moonrise, which unusually tomorrow will do so as the sun sets. Then we'll return to Johnny's to a supper of stuffed marrows and apple and blackberry crumble. Finally, we'll read Keats's 'To Autumn' and have another group reading of T.S. Eliot's 'Four Quartets'.
