Suddenly this week I am being kissed awake by the Sun again. It is delightful rising up through consciousness to that warm touch and laying there in bright bliss for a time before leaving that intense caress. By the time I get downstairs the Sun is now high enough through the East facing window to be a presence where I write, continuing to warm my thoughts and illuminate my relationship with words, a kind of ménage á trois: the Sun, the words, and me.
Spring beckons us to awaken from the sleep of Winter and bring the newness of our being into the cycle of season and growth. The Great Mother pushes us up from Her life giving sanctuary and we stretch and yawn, expand and reach towards a light that sustains the potential of what we may become.

Settle deep into
The rich fertile
Soil of my womb.
Settle deeper into the
Strands of quickened seed and
Light that promise growth.
Settle deeper still into
The heated core of intention
And draw from that source
Of life all that I give
Freely to you..

Until I saw this one. It's poetic. It's evocative.
A row of nine Moons, waning, full, and waxing. Beneath them:
Follow the Moon.
Hello again! This is the last of a two part 'series' on a crystal mural we recently hung in our home. If you missed part one (the hanging process) you can read that here.
In this post I want to talk a bit about the wallpaper pattern I chose and why I chose it....
A Pagan writer discusses one (of several) reason(s) Pagans should be supportive of refugees and other immigrants. An interview with the managers of the holy site at Glastonbury. And an examination of the distinction between violent self-defense and violent activism. It's Watery Wednesday, our segment about news within the Pagan community. All this and more for the Pagan News Beagle!
