Ostara Ritual 2015

I’ll admit I was sorely tempted to simply use a canned ADF ritual, partly because the week was a busy one and I was not able to write as much in advance of the occasion as I’d hoped, and partly because it seemed best to work with some tried and true wording before attempting the spirit of an ADF rite on my own. 1,471 more words

We Interrupt This Program

To bring you this brief announcement.  I am alive, I am still here.

I’ve had Thanksgiving house guests, Christmas house guests, New Years house guests, survived the attendant holidays, slept a total of ten days on the couch, closed on our house, am waiting on pins and needles to hear about my “new” house, and am currently sloshing about in a mess up to my knees.   86 more words
