Not wanting, not hoping, not expecting, yet you came
Ethereal fog in the mist, you slipped past the defense
Fences, walls, and pits you drifted past as if nonexistent
At the perimeter you stopped, going no further
Enticing you wait my emergence….I awedly obey
You stole my heart and whisked it away
Hid it from me to keep as your own
Like Gollum with his precious, I became the enemy
You used it and abused it yet loved it all the same
Then you… Continue

Merry Yule season Everyone! I have to admit that this year has turned out to be a tough one, but I am optomistic about the new year! I am at a very significant time in my life. I am learning a deep lesson about myself and relationship to my husband. He is a wonderful kind accepting Man and I am honored to belong to him. I can feel myself changing. At first I was not looking forward to the Yule season,… Continue

I recently heard a fellow talk about tribalism as being a very instinctive, primitive form of interaction. He stated , we are evolving beyond tribe to community. This was from someone who is not familiar with the current use of the word "tribe" to actually mean community.
So what's the relationship between "tribe" and "community"? A tribe is certainly a community, but a community may not be a tribe. To me, a tribe is more tightly connected. A community means those who are around you,… Continue

Little is known about this goddess, but GardenStone of Boudicca's Bard (who is from the NL) is writing a new book about Her. It's great that Heathens around the world are coming together to research the various gods.
We are nearing Yule, and Nehalennia is considered to be one of the 'matronae' honored during Mother's Night. An interesting thing about her is that she has no mythology - yet her worship is attested to by the presence of many votive altars (one is pictured above) with… Continue

Here's a little something from a festival two years ago - a very rainy festival, most of which I spent in my tent. And, oh, how we needed the rain in that Georgia pine forest.
There Is Only Down For Me
There is only down for me
Compelled, impelled, propelled to fall
Gaining mass and purpose, stealing moisture from the sky
Through cloud and shroud and shadow
Joined with others of my kind
'Til I can't tell where they end and I… Continue

Wait until night has fallen and the moon is visible. Go outside where you won't be disturbed. If it's difficult to find such a place near your home, an open window where the moon is visible will work.
Bask in the moonlight, concentrating on the energy of the moon and the goddess. Let her fill your spirit as you reach out to her. If the moon is full, visualize the goddess in her guise as Mother. If the moon is new, visualize her in her Maiden aspect. If the moon is… Continue
