reaching back

We all know the prevalent wisdom, right? Don’t look back – keep your focus on what’s ahead. It’s all over the place in pithy quotes… “What is coming is far better than what is gone. Don’t look back, keep moving forward!” “Never look backwards or else you’ll lose your way to your goals.” “There’s no … Continue reading

My anam cara closes most of his correspondence or posts with the phrase ‘stay up, stay gold’ – a reference to The Outsiders, but more accurately, the poem ‘Nothing Gold Can Stay’ by Robert Frost. I get why he does it. It’s a beautiful sentiment, and a worthy thing to remind others to be. Hold … Continue reading

This post isn’t yee-haw rabble-rousing or a super-scrumptious recipe (though I have a couple of those that hopefully I’ll get around to soon)… this post is going to ask you to think a little deeper, and maybe question how you do things both in your life and (interestingly) in your ritual. Let me put out … Continue reading

Whew! It has been quite a few days out this way. October is always a slammed-busy month for me (and this go-round I added in a trip out of town!) so needless to say I’m way behind. Just wanted to pop off a quick ‘treat’ this afternoon… a new wallpaper pic – a fabulously October-y witch! … Continue reading

Mabon… a perfect example of why I’m in a state of perma-grin from the first cool morning until spring rears its pollen-encrusted head once again. This past weekend was fabulous. As basically a  ‘baby witch’, I haven’t had much experience celebrating our holidays, and as I have no group (being a Solitary), there wasn’t any … Continue reading
