We're Better Than This ~ Humanitarianism In The Time Of Trump

We’re Better Than This ~ Humanitarianism In The Time Of Trump

So much for humanitarianism. I woke up in time to watch the last half hour of Joy Reid’s show on MSNBC this morning only to hear from Rep. Luis Gutierrez that the situation is worsening in Puerto Rico while the White House believes their response has been a 10 out of 10. Instead of waking […]

He Knew What He Was Getting Into?

He Knew What He Was Getting Into?

Donald, I used to say the following to my boys when they were growing up: every day you have the opportunity to choose who you are, to yourself and to others. And I must say, they both grew up to be honest and compassionate men with integrity that’s endless. I couldn’t imagine losing one of them […]

Witch Notes: October 13th ~ A Day Of Reckoning

Witch Notes: October 13th ~ A Day Of Reckoning

I turn sixty today. I plan to observe it by joining with other women who are boycotting Twitter today protesting the suspension of Rose McGowan and other issues experienced by women on that site. So, I’ll wait to post this after midnight on Twitter in solidarity with the sisterhood. Social media is an interesting place. […]

Witch Notes: Tragedy Requires Compassion Edition

Witch Notes: Tragedy Requires Compassion Edition

After the recent hurricanes and the mass shooting in Las Vegas, it’s hard to imagine that things can get any worse in this country. But then Donald tweets or does a photo op and then reality smacks us all in the face again. He’s unbelievable. He’s allowed to run amok while others behind the scenes […]

All We Needed Was More Paint

All We Needed Was More Paint

Why do I ever leave the house? We needed more paint for the cover over the new well and the pipe from it to the cistern so we headed to the local home improvement stores in the area where we bought the first gallon. My husband is the system operator for our community well and […]

Dear Donald: You End DACA While Proclaiming Today A National Day Of Prayer?

Dear Donald: You End DACA While Proclaiming Today A National Day Of Prayer?

Donald, who are you praying for today? Are you praying for your soul as you tell somewhere in the neighborhood of 800,000 DACA recipients that they have to go back home when they’re already home? They come out of the shadows after it was finally safe to do so and they have to now deal with […]

Humanitarianism Versus Passing The Collection Plate

Humanitarianism Versus Passing The Collection Plate

The rune, Dagaz, from the Elder Futhark indicates a new day arising from awakening and enlightenment. I thought I’d use its shape for today’s tarot reading. After the hurricane and the president that we currently have, we could all use a new day. But let’s see what the cards say. Sometimes I begin in one […]

Dear Donald: Where Is Your Empathy?

Dear Donald: Where Is Your Empathy?

Donald, here is the definition of empathy in case you hadn’t heard of it before: From Merriam-Webster: Definition of empathy 1:  the imaginative projection of a subjective state into an object so that the object appears to be infused with it 2:  the action of understanding, being aware of, being sensitive to, and vicariously experiencing the feelings, thoughts, and […]

Donald, Your Allegiance Is With The Wrong People

Donald, Your Allegiance Is With The Wrong People

Hate is such a destructive emotion. And when it’s put into action, people get hurt or worse. We’ve seen you, our current president, spread the blame around after a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville turned violent and a young woman was killed. The mother of that young woman refused to take your call because of […]

Protection Bindrune: Binding Our Will Into A Single Focus

Protection Bindrune: Binding Our Will Into A Single Focus

For situations beyond our control, a protection bindrune might be necessary. They can protect the individual from harm or interrupt the behavior of another. For this bindrune, I decided to focus its energies into a sigil that helps and individual stand in their own power and more effectively communicate their needs and boundaries. As usual, I […]
