Happy Galentine’s Day to the Dear Women in my Life

This may seem frivolous to some. Like Valentine’s day, love between lady friends should be celebrated all year. However, unlike the love between romantic partners, especially that shared by people who see each other every day, it can be hard to express fondness for people who have become distant through the complications of life.  Work schedules, childcare, personal hobbies, and family obligations can really stretch a person thin!  I feel like, if it weren’t for the internet, I would have lost touch with a lot of my beloved gal pals.  Although we don’t get together as often as I’d like, I just want to send out a special bit of love to all the ladies who are very dear to me.  I wish it were easier for us to get together more regularly, whether it’s to chat over tea or dance around a fire.  Preferably both.  Maybe with wine.  So I’m sending out this little bit of love to the ladies in my life – not just my mother and sister, but also my soul sisters, my spiritual teachers, my like-minded learners, my fellow eccentric artists, priestesses, flame tenders, witches, bitches, Earth warriors, tree huggers, whimsical dreamers, and all around amazing people.  I feel like I spend so much time surrounded by people with whom I can never feel entirely comfortable or myself.  Whenever I’m with my soul sisters, I feel such joy and kinship.  The ladies this goes out to all beam with blessings from the Goddesses, and I’m lucky for how you’ve touched my life.  A toast to you, my lady friends.  I wish we were all together right now.
