A Lazy Evening with X-Files and “Better Book Titles.”

Oh my Gods, I feel so out of it today.  I’ve decided I just have too much going on.  I’m taking it as a blessing that the local zumba classes have been cancelled until Fall.  One less thing not to feel guilty about putting off today.  I felt like a zombie at work.  I kindContinue reading “A Lazy Evening with X-Files and “Better Book Titles.””

Ramblings about Carmina Gadelica

A few years ago, I attempted to read Carmina Gadelica by Alexander Carmichael.  It’s freely available on Sacred Texts if you’re ever interested.  I think I didn’t get far because I find it difficult to read anything lengthy on a computer screen.  I read the introduction.  I remember nearly crying when I read about theContinue reading “Ramblings about Carmina Gadelica”

Nature is Amazing.

“Water leaving a plant through transpiration doesn’t just leave; it creates by its leaving a force called transpirational pull, which both draws more water into the plant through its roots and provides for water movement within plant tissues.  Plants don’t have a heart the way humans and other animals do.  Transpiration is the plant’s substituteContinue reading “Nature is Amazing.”

Huzzah for “Thor!”

Weretoad and I saw “Thor” today. We’ve been anticipating this movie for awhile now. My husband has actually read some “Thor” comics and has this strange little agnostic crush on the God.  I, of course, am a practicing Pagan and wanted to see some Gods on the big screen!  Finally, we’ve both been enjoying theContinue reading “Huzzah for “Thor!””

Llewellyn Worldwide – The Small-Town Pagan’s Survival Guide: Product Summary

    I am very intrigued by this book.  I’m sure a lot of it is common sense, but it is a topic I’m very interested in as I live in a small town.  I read that the author just passed away and yet the book is due out in a couple months.  I hopeContinue reading “Llewellyn Worldwide – The Small-Town Pagan’s Survival Guide: Product Summary”

An Excerpt from Celtic Wonder-Tales by Ella Young

“I want to go back to Ireland.” “You will not find joyousness there, O Lugh, or the music of harp strings, or feasting.  The De Danaans are shorn of their strength.  Ogma, their Champion, carries logs to warm Fomorian hearths; Angus wanders like an outcast; and Nuada, the King, has but one dun, where thoseContinue reading “An Excerpt from Celtic Wonder-Tales by Ella Young”

Celtic Rituals – A Book Review

Last night, while attempting to do my Nine Moons Retreat, I took some time to focus on my studies and finished a book I’ve been reading in bits and pieces for months – Celtic Rituals An Authentic Guide to Ancient Celtic Spirituality by Alexei Kondratiev.  While I’m always wary of anything claiming authenticity, Kondratiev hasContinue reading “Celtic Rituals – A Book Review”

Fun Things

First of all, I’m very proud of myself for cleaning the stove for my past three flame keeping nights.  I also cleaned some of the counter space and swept for good measure. Since tonight was my evening to honor Brighid, I was very pleased to get my Imbolc Artisan Trading Card from Caroline!  My originalContinue reading “Fun Things”

What Redwall Means to Me…

A couple weekends ago, Brian Jacques, the author of the Redwall series, passed away.  While I have many favorite authors, he was the first.  His death touched me in a way I didn’t expect.  I actually cried because I fully realized his influence in my life. When I discovered his first book, Redwall, I was elevenContinue reading “What Redwall Means to Me…”
