I was looking at the calendar a little while ago, wondering where the summer had gone...Lammas is almost upon us, and my tiny "window-box" garden has yet to bear any fruit; heavy rains or baby cats take out anything that wants to grow. There was a time when I HAD time to devote to a garden, or even a decent flowerbed or two. Chaos seems to grow rampant here at "Windy Acres" as of late...weeds abound where there was once lush grass, the aged trees have lost many limbs this year and neither my…Continue
So I did go the new moon ritual and man, it was amazing! It was a spectacular demonstration of just how a coven should function!! There was much discussion during feast about many things and it was wonderful to listen to the members bounce ideas and theories off of each other. They honored each person's view and openly offered their own, without judgement. I waited on pins and needles to see if I would be invited back. Protocol dictates that the group needed to approve it, and I was…Continue
In my earliest of memories, I was raised conservative Christian. We attended church, a Baptist church just a hop and skip down the road from where I was raised, but it wasn't a Sunday ritual. In lieu of forced attendance, our Christianity was practiced at home. On most nights, my grandmother would read from the family Bible. We'd pray together before going to bed. Well over 20 years ago, I still remember many of the typical prayer recepients. These remain some of my fondest childhood…Continue
So Lammas is almost here and Im sure some of you are looking for a few "easy to fit into your life" things to do .I personally love a good reason to wander and harvest.It soothes my soul ,centers my core and makes me feel as productive as any hunter gatherer could ever be.When most of you think of Lammas your thinking Corn and other grains.For me that's more Mabon and something all of you know to begin with..I decided to do a post on a few really great and readily available plants to use in…Continue
started with a tiny egg ! lol Earlier this summer
I popped outside to pluck a bit of fennel for salad.
As I reached out to start snipping ,something stilled my hand.
So I'm thinking about a blog that will be my first experiment in this. As in ever! The Main Idea is to see what people think about as far as science fiction goes and who they read that they are willing to share. Also wanted is your opinion on elves, dwarves, ents, treants *yes there is a difference see if you can find it and let me know*, goblins, orcs, giants, faerie, faye, Sidhe. Then of course there is the darker side of things, the Banshee *which legend do you go by*, The Green Man…Continue

So here we go....I have been on my path basically since 1996. I remember sitting in my friend's bedroom and we were talking about religion versus spirituality. I was complaining that conventional Christianity was not suiting my needs and didn't know where else to turn. He then asked me if I had ever considered Wicca. I could feel myself pale, and I asked "What...you mean witchcraft? Don't they worship the devil?" He laughed and…Continue
So my family went to a Traditional Music Festival called Bliss Festival this Weekend and I played at a drum circle. I was Banging on my drum so hard it broke my wedding ring and cut my hand and splatted the front of my drum with blood. That is after consuming some Magic Concoctions made by various distilleries. What a great weekend. Now my drum is consecrated.

Okay here is something for you guys to ponder on. What do you think of this very true situation that is happening to me:
This is the situation:
I took my three girls to their vet to get spayed, (I, was very lucky to have assistance with it since I am not working) and hoping to be able to give a donation to them.
Zahara has allergies and now Luna, her pup, has it too but not as bad. When I went to pick up the girls the vet said that Zahara…Continue
I am a blessed Hedge Witch ....
I own my property outside of town limits and am happily growing a meadow out front melding into a jungle in back.My minions are many and I love them all.
However growing a garden / refuge for butterflies and bees is not hard nor does it require a large area .All…
The group I have been Kicking it with has finally died. Now it is just my wife and I. Its funny how everyone fell to being controlled by their circumstances to the point of even showing up to our flexible schedual.
Why is it so hard to get people to have a good time howling at the moon? Strange..

Augh...You know? I love critters, big and small.. not that I'm a big fan of things that buzz and sting (I usually end up running the opposite direction with both arms wiggling in the air.. and screaming).. But ants? I truly am getting tired of them.
A colony of red and black ants has moved into my new herb bed. I'm VERY unhappy as they are making a huge colony right on the side of the circle area and very very close to my Hyssop.... Here you can see some of the herbs (about…Continue
Your love and loneliness lets me see into your soul.
Your eyes are like windows, open yet cold.
Love is all you want, what you yearn for,
Yet, you've been hurt so bad you've barricaded your heart's door.
The pains are easy to see, the hatred too.
Your heart and soul full of love, love that is true.
Peace be your soul, for love is out there,
You just might soon see, someone who cares.
Darkness surrounds me, all I have is the light of the moon;
Energy within me, beating out a quiet tune.
The temperature rises, the world outside is hushed;
Breathe in the warm spices, dancing in the fields that are lush.
