There are so many things a performer is afraid of and one of them is – Stage Fright.
Stage fright is an issue for the newbies in the world of public speaking, and it can be a cause of worry even for the experienced. This is because the person about to deliver a speech or give a presentation in a business meeting is often worried about the reception the will receive before, during and after the speech. It is possible that even the most experienced speaker might give a dumb impression…Continue

Pagan Pride Day in the Twin Cities yesterday. I skipped it. I am so tired of plastic pagans, those who are there only for self-gratification. I so do not need community, I do not need those who cannot be pagan without being validated by someone else. Christians need community, they need churches to validate themselves and their beliefs. For me, covens are nice and with the exception of Gardnerian, they do not attempt to tell you what to say or how to act or feel. I strengthen my spirituality…Continue
Autumn is here and with it comes the last of our harvesting season. So this time Ive been wandering collecting Corn stalks. This time of year the sweet corn is long gone but the stalks can be harvested and used for many things. Corn has been held sacred to many cultures since the beginning of recorded time. It has…Continue
Blessings to Steve, all the fellow mods, and the RP members.....
Just a short note to explain my frequent absences as of the past couple of weeks... My cousin entered hospice and was brought home two weeks ago today...(Brain Cancer). Things have been pretty touch and go, the days and nights, have been filled with both good and bad moments. As a family, we have been spending as much time as possible with him...We lost his mom to the same thing, several years ago, so this has been very…Continue
Just thought I would post this to let everyone know that we have a new website. We have been making soap at home and we hope to sell it at flea markets, farmer's markets, and festivals. We have several different scents to choose from, and it is good for sensitive skin. I use it on my 5 year old every day and he has very sensitive skin. We finally put a website together and it is now available to purchase online, so if you guys like natural soaps please feel free to check it out! Thanks!…Continue

Sorry it's been a while since I have posted. I have been sick and it just has not been a good couple of months for me. I turned 33 this month on the 3rd. So I guess that is one good thing. :) I'm still here after turning one year older. Recently, I have been doing more Egyptian Wicca research and found my Egyptian Name. I chose it. It is Sat-Anubis meaning Daughter of Anubis. I have also lately been watching a channel on YouTube called the Kemetic Independent Channel. If…Continue

In Luna’s face
And in the sea
Why mother do you beckon me?
By waters edge
And at nightfall
I concentrate to heed your call
The bright stars dancing
From dusk to morn’
Or joy and laughter in sudden storm
If what I feel
And what I see
I could make…Continue

Man look to the stars for certainty, but the only certainty is that every day we are alive, our destiny is getting one day closer.
We are all in motion hurdling towards a destiny we did not chose and cannot avoid.
Something I have spent aeons trying to avoid, but I guess... it’s about great bodies moving through space and they speed up as they get nearer to each other…

Fluttering through the flow
seeking direction and purpose
Pursuing the faint call of a whisper
A gentle promise of sweet content
Fluttering through the endless flow
Searching through layer upon…

A lone figure edged on a ridge
against a setting sun
wings resting neck arched
watching the light fade to night
A gentle breath escape scally lips
muscles twitch, releasing the days tension
heavy head turn as blue eyes
scan the night sky waiting
The sound of night…

Wisdom written in the veins of a leaf
Whispers of years that has passed
Live recorded with each passing breath
Each day added to the rings of knowledge
The tender beat of a lady bugs heart

I wrote this one night, and I can't remember when, found it in my journal a few days ago... I may still work on this or not, I never know
Moving flowing swaying,
Blue energy swirling,
One way then the next...
Drawing deep from heated breath,

It's been a while since I've posted here on the blog here. I think it's time I started getting serious again with my inner self blogs. My inner self has been telling me some interesting things lately.
In fact, for some reason, I feel that I've been having visions of the future or some sort of revelation about myself. I'm not sure how to explain it, other than it's as though I'm actually there. When these visions happen, they're sometimes here and sometimes on another…Continue

Hubby and I are off on a roadtrip with the kids from tomorrow until next Wed-ish. I did see the responses in the forum and am not ignoring them. I will address them as soon as I return.
In the meantime, positive thoughts and prayers would be most welcome. We have been offered the jobs of our dream and are going to check the place out.
I will be checking in on the road but being in the car all day with the kids for 2 days, then 2 days home. I can't guarantee I will return with…Continue
Im back again after being out of touch while creating.This time I delved into the world of sacred
instruments. I came back with a lot more knowledge and a profound respect for their makers
It seems that we with all our technology have lost most of the ancient science of…Continue
Big Surprise. I am a socialist. No, I am not getting into a political debate here. I have come to beg.
Are you aware that many of our bridges, roads, and the electrical grid are standing on shaky ground? When designed, they were not meant to handle the current population load or to stand as long as they have. Many bridges in the US are 40 years out of date or more. As you read it, you are most likely connected to the same electrical grid that was designed to handle half the current…Continue
Forgive my rant please as I am on little sleep and immensely frustrated. For your reading pleasure, I would like to discuss something a little uncomfortable.
As a homeschooler and alternative educator, I love being wrong. Yes, it stings a little, most especially when its a firmly held belief that is being challenged...but sincerely, I love being wrong. Being wrong is not a reflection of my character or of my intelligence, it is just a temporary state, one so easily…Continue
