Current and Future Goals and Dreams (2018-19)

Each year I like to look back over the previous year, and then set goals for the coming year. Many people do this on Jan 1st; I prefer to do it on my birthday.

Reviewing the Year (2017-18)

Each year I like to look back over the previous year, and then set goals for the coming year. Many people do this on Jan 1st; I prefer to do it on my birthday. I often refine the accomplishments and goals until my new year, Samhain, but the bulk of the work is done on or around my birthday.

Chakra Work: Foundation

This year my coven has decided to quietly embark on a couple of intermediate lessons for ourselves.

Sausage & Apples

I eat a lot of eggs for breakfast, pretty much every day in fact. During the week that usually means I’ve created some kind of ‘bake’ — veggies, maybe meat, probably some cheese, covered in an egg/milk combination and then baked until the eggs are set.

Words of Me: Two

Creating a kind of mission statement. 1. My mind, body and soul are very important to me. I promise to take care of them by… Treating my body with respect for the hard work it does so elegantly. Cherishing its strength and helping it achieve its best level of health. Feeding my brain art, literature, music, and puzzles to keep …Continue reading →

30 Days of Yoga

In June I challenged myself to do yoga every day. Knowing that I probably wouldn’t be able to do it every single day, I gave myself a bit of an out: my challenge was to get to the mat, if only metaphorically. If I could show up, that would count. So, how did I do?

Oysters I Like

The oysters of my youth were huge things, briny and thick — I hated them and couldn’t see why people made such a fuss over them.
