I might not be able to fill my cupboards with food for the winter, but what I am able to grow and wildharvest really helps connect me to the land and the changing seasons. Thanks Nature Spirits! Thanks Mother Earth!
My toddler daughter is mastering walking (and running), and loves going outside to walk around my garden. She’s also mastering her fine motor skills, which has made for some mildly stressful walks. She’s seen me harvest enough food from the garden to understand that you can pick things and eat them. Thankfully, she doesn’t putContinue reading “Pagan Parenting: Encouraging a Love of Fresh, Seasonal Food”
Like most people in America, I spent some time outdoors with my family this Labor Day weekend. We decided to explore one of the larger islands in the 1000 Islands – Wellesley Island. We chose to take a late afternoon hike on one of the shorter trails at the Minna Anthony Nature Center. We arrivedContinue reading “North Country Druid: An Afternoon on Wellesley Island”
I’ve been reading and enjoying Margot Adler’s “Drawing Down the Moon.” Several people in my protogrove decided to read it towards various ADF study programs and to honor Adler as an Ancestor.

I’ve been anxiously awaiting for their arrival and, now that I have one, I can begin Magic I! I received The Irish Celtic Magical Tradition by SteveContinue reading “It’s here!”
I must say… All that reiki healing yesterday gave me such an ache in my bum. Too much gassho while kneeling and slouching over bodies laying on the floor… I think my gluteus maximus needs some healing.
The weather up here in Northern NY is amazing. I can actually go outside without a coat in the afternoon and early evening. It’s especially amazing when you consider the frost we had this morning. I’m definitely not putting any plants out yet! After work I convinced my husband to take a walk with meContinue reading “Walking in a Springtime Wonderland”
