World Disability Day 2020

Well, friends, I had no idea that this day of recognition existed… apparently since 1992. I tripped into Twitter today and found so many uplifting posts (a rarity indeed).

I hope this finds you well and having a happy day. Mahalo.

Blessed Samhain 2020

And Happy Halloween.  We had a wonderful night around the fire with family and part of our Circle, socially distanced Samhain ritual, and mulled cider. It was so good to see faces that I have missed so long.

I hope each of you were able to spend time with a loved one today. This Blue Moon Samhain did not disappoint (and I didn’t miss trick or treat too terribly). Just have to gear up to lead Samhain discussion during Zoom church in the morning. Fingers crossed.

Stay warm and don’t lose hope just yet. We are a resilient species. This New Year holds no surprises, we must stay our course, until we can hug each other once again.

Van Halen was my Rock gateway drug

And my world would not have been the same without them. Eddie Van Halen has passed today at the age of 65 from a long battle with cancer.

My love and tears go out for his family, friends, and multitude of fans. Eddie is bringing his unstoppable riffs and monster chops to that amazing big band in Rock-and-Roll Heaven. I once considered him a good choice for Dad before I knew my biological father and had yet to be adopted. Seems I made a great choice, my imaginary Dad was an amazing Dad in real life to his son, Wolf.

My heart hurts. If you feel moved to, please light a candle with me tonight for his Spirit and his loved ones.

A blustery day…

But yet, the morning glories were still fighting to stay open at 6 PM and trying to capture the rain. They are not ready to fade for the Winter coming, nor am I. The limited socialization during the Pandemic had made this gorgeous past Summer feel like the isolation of Winter. Enjoy the handful of Autumn right now. My bones tell me it is fleeting.

It is time for the wild geese to fly.

The petals shine like electrified water colours.

A slightly belated Merry Mabon

I do hope the beginning of Autumn [in the northern hemisphere, Spring in the southern] has been calm and enjoyable for each of you. My week started a bit bumpy.

On Monday, September 21st, just after 11 AM, I was sideswiped by a drunk driver. I have no idea how much damage was done to my car as yet, but I am fine. Still a bit angry at the whole situation, but physically, I am fine, I promise.

Dawn took my picture today for a school photography assignment. She even did my hair and makeup like a pretty princess. Not too bad, if I say so myself.
Oh, and that dark haired beauty is my goat familiar Starry.

Today was full of trying to not be lazy with repotting aloe plants and doing some laundry. Feeling fairly accomplished. I almost have too many plants for my kitchen window area (not complaining!); they give me joy. Bringing them inside was a sure sign the wheel of the year has turned.

I know it has been Halloween Season since August 1st, but now I feel it in my bones. I’m sure there will be no trick-or-treating this year due to Covid-19. My hope is that the tradition isn’t gone forever, but this could very well be the nail in the coffin for going door-to-door. I still want a campfire and treats and spooky stories with my kids this year. They need to know our histories despite the changes of our present.

I don’t want to bring my dear Readers down with my dark predictions, so we will stop there. Revel in this new season, keep your loved ones close. May we all have a prosperous harvest time and fill our coffers, for the winter is truly coming [and I am rewatching Game of Thrones].

Be well, my loves.

Her legacy will live on.

A Goddess on Earth has now passed to the Heavens. I just found out Ruth Bader Ginsburg died earlier today. My heart aches. She will be remembered with love, hope, and courage. We must all pick up the mantle that she has now set down. Justice has not yet been served to this 2020 bullshittery. I have no words.
