I am currently in the process of migrating the content shared here to a series of new websites hosted at shirleytwofeathers.com.

As you explore this site, you may find links to a "page not found" instead of something cool and magickal. For this I apologize. I am very working hard behind the scenes to restore those pages along with a link to their homes on my new website where they can be viewed in full.

Festival of Mercury

In ancient Rome on the fifteenth of May, the month so named from his mother, a festival was celebrated in honor of Mercury. Merchants and traders sacrificed a sow, sprinkled themselves, and the goods they intended for sale, with water from his fountain, and prayed that Mercury would both blot out all the frauds and perjuries they had already committed, and enable them to impose again on their buyers.
