Walking the Trail of Tears
The Cherokee Indians were once a great nation centered in the Great Smokey Mountains with a sphere of influence extending hundreds of miles. They were probably the most "civilized" (Europeanized) tribe in America with well established churches and schools equal to those of their white neighbors. They lived in log cabins even before European contact, although the Cherokee style had no windows
The Cherokees had their own code of tribal laws, and… Continue

The Indian Mother-Goddess known as Gujeswari is honored on or around this date each year by Buddhists and Hindus in Nepal. Prayers are recited throughout the day, and a musical procession fills the streets with sacred songs after sunset.
In India, a religious festival called the Parvati-Devi takes place on this day each year. It honor the triple goddess known as the Mother of the Universe, whose three goddess aspects are Sarasvati (Maiden), Lakshmi (Mother), and Parvati (Crone).

In the News
The AFA (American Family Association) has called for a Christmas boycott of all Gap, Old Navy, and Banana Republic stores, because the company’s ads have not used the word Christmas. Gap did in fact, use the word Christmas in its holiday ad this year, but also mentioned, Hanukkah, Kwanza and Solstice. When Gap’s new holiday ad came out this past week, the AFA immediately sent out an “action alert” condemning it as being condescending towards Christian Christmas… Continue

My Mom passed away on November 11, 2009. She was diagnosed with cancer on our wedding anniversary and died just a few weeks later. I was fortunate enough to be there and held her hand when she passed from this life into the next.
My Mom was a Conservative Christian and I never told her about my path as a Druid. I dropped hints to her that I now honored the Divine in Nature instead of in a church, but I never told her the entire truth because she would never understand and I didn't… Continue

I have come to know(with a helping hand from the Gods) that redemption for me lay within myself. It wasn't about being saved from evil, it was finding the strength to love myself as I am. I see my Gods as teachers, friends, protectors, they guide, they NEVER force.
I have faced my fears and guess what am still here. Blessed Be All.
PS. Please remember the Gods do answer prayers if asked.

I know this is a time of giving thanks for what we have in our lives.
I am thankful that in this tough economy, when people lose their jobs left and right, not only my job is not in any kind of jeopardy, but everybody, staff and residents, have supported me with love and care and can’t wait to see me back, even if they know it might be another couple of weeks or so before that can happen.
I am thankful that while other people lost their homes, I still have the roof of my… Continue

Not a big Turkey fan, so I made Ham instead.
In picking through the various blogs and threads here on the site -- I'm watching people getting their knickers in a knot about one form or another on a manner of persecution - implied, blatant, and/or otherwise. I'm a fairly quiet person here on PS. I don't post a lot, even about my podcast -- I'm just not super huge on tooting my own damn horn, ya know? But if you disagree with someone on something -- I've always found the rule of thumb… Continue

...since the phone call came in the wee hours notifying me of Mom's passing. I'm still smothered in grief...although there are okay days, not okay days, and other stuff. Last night I had a major meltdown and thought I'd just collapse from the grief. Hubby held me in his arms while I was racked with bawling, sobbing, and such. He provided tissue and scotch as needed and gave me space when that was needed as well. Gods I love him so!
This morning I got up and made biscuits and gravy… Continue

Hi I am Obsidian I am 27, a Cancer, and a Performer. I was born under a lunar eclipse(7-5-82).I have also had a strong connection to the moon.

I have had a connection with Bast from the beginning. I remember precisely the moment I learned her name. It was the first time I had used a search engine AOL to be exact.
