Nature Awareness: Pure Joy

The previous weekend, I went out into the forest.  I needed it.  I was feeling some cabin fever.  We’ve had snow on top of snow on top of snow.  Furthermore, I had had a terrible, no good, very bad night the day before.   The forest was calling my name. I was already trudging throughContinue reading “Nature Awareness: Pure Joy”

Natural Awareness Journal – January 5th, 2013

 Begin a regular practice of attunement to the land, including outdoor meditations and offerings to the Nature Spirits. It is suggested to pick a place easily accessible that you might be able to go to several times a week (such as an overgrown fence – row, a more ‘wild’ section of your backyard, possibly a city park, or even a balcony garden, etc)Continue reading “Natural Awareness Journal – January 5th, 2013”

A Walk in the Forest

  When I woke up this morning, I felt the forest calling.  As if to emphasize it, a crow cawed as I shared my feelings about it on Twitter.

Blueberry Harvesting and Forest Romps

We joined some friends to harvest blueberries today!  We weren’t able to get too many – we ended up with about two cups worth.  They are very tiny but so full of flavor!  Quite different from most store-bought varieties.  Collectively, we probably picked enough to make a pie, but apart…  I think our two cupsContinue reading “Blueberry Harvesting and Forest Romps”

But before you just run intoContinue reading “Hug Those Trees But Watch Out for Ticks!”

The Ditzy Druid Climbs Bald Mountain

I went to Old Forge Saturday afternoon to celebrate my sister’s birthday.  She wanted to climb Bald Mountain which is a few minutes past that lovely little hamlet.  It’s been a few years since I’ve been there.  The last time was when my husband, Weretoad, proposed to me!  We were excited to return. Bald MountainContinue reading “The Ditzy Druid Climbs Bald Mountain”

Ditzy Druid Doings: Yay for Spring!

Hubby and I are feeling better – just sniffly.  Now that the local weather has gone from toasty warm to cold again, I’m not sure if I’m dealing with allergies or a cold. All the same, tea is my friend and I won’t let a sniffle keep me from enjoying the beauty of the newContinue reading “Ditzy Druid Doings: Yay for Spring!”
