When it’s over, it’s over, and so it Begins

The vultures came with the premonition of death, the Vikings warning of new territory and adventure, and the Angels came to support me. The mailman came with a Certified Letter: the square hit in the forehead by the two-by-four I needed to make this necessary change. Without all the muck, which boiled over from Cerridwyn’s […]

Vikings, Vultures, and Angels summon a Slow start, quick changes

Being awesome has its downfalls. Because you are awesome too, I know you know what I mean! I have been enjoying so much time last year flitting around holding circles, performing wedding ceremonies, laughing, loving, crying, celebrating, cherishing, (some yelling), and I guess…. just the emotional power of love took me over. Then I fell. […]

Friday the 13th of October

Today is a tough one for me. The fires in Santa Rosa continue to burn, though they are headed east. I call upon the Goddess to comfort me, mine, and my communities as we gather strength to get through the next days. I thought this photo was a good one for today, because I am […]

Flirting with Femininity
