The word alchemy may be derived from the Arabic "al kimiya" meaning "the magical craft of the black country."

Check out this post @harnessmagazine ‘Dawn within the Night’
The moon and sun are distant lovers, to meet only distantly, opposite from one another. Though neither can be beside one another, one can not be without the other. The sun is the light of the moon, the moon is the other half of the sun; together they are a balancing act of creation. The moon with no sun is only a dark, cold, desolate land, and the sun with no moon to shine light upon is only a fiery ball of unpredictability, always spreading non-stop heat; he only would be a violent ball of destructive heat without his moon to shine on. But there are those rare occasions, when moon and sun come into alignment, and when that happens a night sweeps the landscape, as if there is a dawn within the night.

@harnessmagazine my article “Changing with the Seasons: Summertime”
Summer is the height of all the seasons, the end and beginning of the cycle of life. Symbolically, it is the ultimate goal, the point of enlightenment, the highest level of consciousness where the light shines the brightest, longest, and everlasting.
Summer is a celebration of the sun and a season of prosperity. The showers of Spring washed away the ice of winter, and gave nourishment to the dry, bare soil, so that it can once again prosper bountifully with life. The flowers are now in full bloom, trees lush and green, grass soft to the touch under bare feet, and animals are roaming about that once were in hibernation. Herbs, vegetation, and wild grain return to the land, providing nourishment for all. All seems so well, fun loving, and exciting in the heat of summer.
