Labels

 Let’s talk about labels for a moment. I see a LOT of hemming and hawing, both within the pagan community, and general community as well, that “Labels are just some thing we call ourselves!” Exactly! That’s the POINT! It’s a word we use to describe a facet of ourselves. Be it boy/girl, man/woman, witch, seeker,…

Shavings

​I have a habit that might be strange. I enjoy writing, and drawing. I go through a lot of pencils. Years ago, I went through a period where the images in my head were “stuck”. It didn’t matter what I did, my sketches were wrong, and my words were jumbled. I had a pencil sharpener…

Loss

Afternoons in my house are normally noisy. All video games and bickering and homework. But not today. Today, my mercurial daughter left the school building fighting back sobs, my normally relentlessly cheerful son had tears in his eyes. They, for the first time, have lost one of their own. A girl known as KatieLyn passed…

More Adventures in GF

I’m a whole week Gluten Free! They say it takes three weeks to establish (or break) a habit. If that’s true, I’m a third of the way through the worst of it. Here’s the pros and cons so far… Pros: less gassy, noticeably more energy, sleeping better because I’m not waking up with stomach cramps, less…

I Have Two Options

As an openly practicing pagan, I have some things to figure out. And I need to do it quickly…I live in an area where people are still fairly conservative. Not in the outrageous way we all read horror stories about, but in that I still get looked at “funny” when  people ask what church I…

Creating the Tarot

I decided that since I can’t find a tarot deck that calls to me, I’m going to make my own. Obviously, this is going to be a long term project. I’ve already made some of the most basic decisions, like paper, and style. I’ve also decided that I’m going to go a bit non-traditional with…

whispers

Do not speak to me of cabbages and Kings, Nor of wild things and where they be! Softly now, the children hear, and in their wonderment, the Gods will whisper through the leaves.

Ug, GF

Well over a year ago I was diagnosed with Celiac’s disease. I tried with little success to follow the Dr’s orders and cut all wheat, rye, barley, and all their derivatives from my diet. I failed so hard. So, my “stomach problems”, as we call them, continued, unabated. I kept gaining weight. I had days…

Being a “Witchy” Mama

I am a Witchy Mama! What does this mean? Simply? I am a Witch and a Pagan, and I have children. More detail?  It means that I dance along that ancient dirt path through the forest we call life, all the while attempting to help my littles gain their own footing. It means that we…
