I decided to simplify my altar recently. My father bumped into it, causing a few things to fall. Nothing broke and he put everything back, but it got me thinking just how easy it would be for Bee to do the same, possibly hurting herself. I also wanted to pack an item away that had been given to me by someone who has since caused a loved one pain. It no longer felt right on my altar. At least not for now.
I’m not used to such a simplified altar, but it is sure to change with the seasons. I am hoping to decorate a little more for the Autumn Equinox this weekend. For now… there’s a single acorn there to commemorate the season!
