In my case, I've had two names during my 30-ish years as a Witch. The first name I crafted was … Continue reading taking a new name
Words are intention. Yesterday morning I posted about improv. Yesterday evening I reluctantly attended my husband's holiday party. Reluctant because I'm a hardcore introvert and a room full of people I don't know at a party makes me exhausted just thinking about it. But I went because he does so much for us, and he's … Continue reading thanks for the reminder!
Some people live a very scripted life. They go to school like you're "supposed" to, K-12, followed by four more years in college, work, get married, and so on.

Deforestation continues to threaten our world even decades after … Continue reading keeping the hearth fire
Trí labra ata ferr táu: ochán ríg do chath, sreth immais, mola iar lúag. Three speeches better than silence: inciting a king to battle, using alliteration, praise after payment. (M. Daimler, Pagan Portals Brigid)
Yesterday's therapy appointment was illuminating. I nearly didn't go because I have a shitty cold, one where I am prone to coughing fits and losing my voice. I generally get one like this once a year, and apparently now is the time. So anyway, I drug my carcass in and as usual, I'm glad I … Continue reading my team of champions
forgiving our fathers by dick lourie maybe in a dream: he's in your power you twist his arm but you're not sure it was he that stole your money you feel calmer and you decide to let him go free or he's the one (as in a dream of mine) I must pull from the … Continue reading forgiving our fathers
