I had a good day at the picnic. Pretty hot, though. Getting ready to leave for family barbque. Tonight, I'm taking a cool bath and relaxing, I may even write a little. (Yay) I hope everyone else is having a blessed summer.
Regarding that last post: Sorry I just saw your request. I must encourage all that if they wish to contact me there is a form on the website on the contact page. Please use that as it is forwarded to my email that I check regularly. I unfortunately get busy and do not check in on this blog as often as I should.
So that being addressed, it has been sort of hectic around here lately. My son graduated from high school, we got a new puppy and I have been working on my book. Now all the craziness has died down and maybe I can get back to some things that haven't received much attention from me.
Looking forward to the Pagan Picnic. If anyone is in St Louis June 12-13, check it out, it is a blast. I hope to be able to take more of it in this year. Well, take care and Merry meet and merry meet again.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Samhain. We sure did. We had a bonfire, set up the quarters, fed the ancestors, and roasted hot dogs. My kids had some friends over who were curious as to how Wiccans celebrate, so part of the night was an educational session. I think they were surprised to see how simple our celebration was. My daughter and I did some gazing into the fire and I personally felt some peace. I think this year is going to be better for us, I hope it is for you too!
I seem to have reached a block in writing my novel, but I am flipping ideas around in my head. I think I might self-publish when I'm finished, so check back on the page titled, Kiss of the Blue Moon. When I do, I'll put a link there for anyone interested in purchasing.
Work has been keeping me pretty busy, but I am currently doing some research for myself. I'm hoping this leads to a new page.
As always, thanks for visiting me, come back often.
I finally got the redes and laws page updated. The host was in the middle of a migration and I couldn't edit! I upgraded my account, so good news! No more ads! I want to thank all of you for the great comments. I have been terribly busy with work, writing my book, (see Kiss of the Blue Moon) and generally just trying to keep my life together.
I hope all of you are making it in this crappy economy. I have money issues too. I try to thank the Goddess every day for what i do have. Remember that a "thank you" has more power than a want. So, thank her every day for the blessings that you have and more will come your way!
Merry meet and blessed be!
I just thought I would drop in and give a few updates. I have included some information about Samhain on the Wheel of the Year page. I am also happy to report that my new cat, Cujo, (named by my children) is about six months old now and is turning into a beautiful tom cat. He is a little furrier than most and solid black except for a patch on his belly that is only visible if you turn him over. I think he may actually be my familiar and I am happy about that. He comes only when I call him and sometimes I wake up to find him just sitting and watching me sleep. He definitely rules the household, even the dogs know he is in charge. I had to delete my email address from the site because of abuse from automatic mailers. So, please, if you have a question or comment do it here and I will do my best to respond. I hope you had a wonderful Mabon and I wish you a Blessed Samhain. If you have some Samhain traditions that you would like to share, please post them here it helps those that are new to the craft to find their own traditions.
Merry Meet and Merry Meet Again!
I get lots of emails from people who are new to Wicca. Since my site is aimed toward the newbies, that's good. So many say the same things they are so worried about performing a spell right or doing a ritual properly. So that led me to take a moment and make a note about what Wicca should be. First, it should not stress you out, quite the opposite. I encourage people to read lots of books not because you should be seeking out the right way to do anything, only so that you are exposed to other people's way of doing things. The more you know, the better you will become at adapting things to suit yourself. That is when the real power will come to you. When you can write your own spell, or create your own ritual, you will empower them with your own personal energy, that is being a true Wiccan. Remember, Wicca is flexible because it is based upon your personal energy. Everyone's energy is different so it needs to be adapted to suit you. Relax, it will come to you. You have all the time in the world, and before you know it, you will be an adept Wiccan.
Good luck and Goddess bless!
A friend asked me the other day what should religion do for a person anyway? My answer: spiritual guidance free of guilt. Any religion shoudl first and foremost be about helping you to become a better person. Becoming a better person is always the first step to spiritual enlightenment. I think the means is not as important as the end result.
The ability to assess your personal faults is the hardest part, but being open-minded enough to do so is an accomplishment in itself. I think fear tactics in this are defeating the purpose, the idea is that you are able to reach these conclusions on your own, because you want to.
Dont misunderstand me here, I am not bashing any religion, I wouldn't do that, it wouldnt be very Wiccan-like. I simply believe that people should pick their religion based upon their individual needs. If your religion isnt helping you to achieve your goals, maybe it isnt the right one for you.
Explore, learn about other religions, if nothing else, it helps to understand other people better. Who knows? You might stumble upon your calling. Good luck and Goddess Bless. )0(
