And Then A Turtle Showed Up

Whenever I happen upon a new animal or insect on our property I take notice. Sometimes they’re just passing through, but sometimes they stay and yesterday we noticed a turtle sunning itself on a plank the geese and ducks use to access the dock in our pond. We’ve lived here for thirty-six years, raising our […]

Witch Notes ~ The WTF Edition

Witch Notes ~ The WTF Edition

Sometimes a witch’s mind wanders to all sorts of things when she should be doing something constructive like watering the garden. So a while back I came up with Witch Notes. In other words, it’s a place to gripe about stuff.   My husband, Jerry, and I were headed up to town when we passed […]

Ritual For Unity Of Purpose

Ritual For Unity Of Purpose

Sometimes we become scattered, each one of us off on our own path, unable to come together in unity with others. And yet we instinctively know that together we can accomplish far more than we can alone. Even when we have a clear responsibility to each other, we still find it difficult to come together […]

In Consideration for All That We've Built

In Consideration of All That We’ve Built ~ Tarot for 31 Jan 2017

Before the new guy destroys everything in sight, maybe he should rethink that choice, particularly in consideration of all that we’ve built together. You’d think, given all the hotels, resorts, casinos, and golf courses he’s built he’d understand the value of this concept. However, it’s not just the tangible that’s important but the relationships we […]

On This Mother’s Day

  It’s been twenty years since my mother’s death. She had been ill with COPD and congestive heart failure for several years before her death one month before her sixty-sixth birthday. She stopped smoking ten years earlier, but it wasn’t enough. She died alone in her home. My oldest son accompanied me on the drive […]

It’s Not About Forgiveness or Loving Unconditionally

I’ve been thinking about forgiveness lately and what that actually is. Although A Course In Miracles addresses the notion of forgiveness as a tool, it also suggests that forgiveness is a form of judgment, albeit a somewhat acceptable form. At some point, if we saw everyone as One in Source Energy we wouldn’t even notice the behavior […]

Witch Notes…7 November 2015

  This witch did a double take when reading that the new DEA chief believes that cannabis has no medicinal value, calling it a joke, yet also believes that it’s not as bad as alcohol, which is legal throughout the country. For the love of Goddess, when will we appoint people who can actually think […]

Walk A New Path..A Joyful Challenge

It’s always nice to change up the walk route. My husband and I have been walking daily for almost three years now. The new route is nine miles. The old route was eight miles, but the new one has fewer cars to contend with, and it’s more secluded. We trek to the pollution control plant and […]
