Earthquake? What earthquake?

Wow, well I missed out on all the excitement early this morning. It seems there was an earthquake in Illinois, and lots of people in this area felt it. My husband and children woke up. I slept right through it! We live right across a field from a very active train track, and it's also been very windy the past few days. Guess I just figured it was the usual middle of the night train that passes through, or another gust of wind catching the house and moving it about.I did wake up when I heard my… Continue

Sage Advice From A Tender Young Soul

My grandson and I were playing this afternoon. He had fashioned a telescope from a section of a plastic hamster tunnel, and was squinting through it with delight. "Here Grandma," he said, handing the tube off to me, "it's YOUR turn!"

A Slow Process

I'm amazed that I've gone from not recalling my dreams to consistently remembering them now. They are very insightful, but I am impatient. I want instant answers, but that's not the way things work.I've been told to be patient, and to pursue balance.

The Game Is Afoot!

So I've finally decided to relax into my pagan leanings and start learning more, and more importantly practicing more. I've had such a fear of this, having been duly indoctrinated in the past. I've vacillated back and forth between studying, practicing, and rejecting and studying some more. I've looked at my life from the very beginning, and can see where the Old Ways crossed my path again and again like a white stag, inviting me to step into the wholeness of it, the home of it.
