What a Decade! What a year!

Truly, the last ten years have been transformation for me, and 2019 was, overall, a grand end.   I entered the decade a newly married woman with a new job, new apartment, and new community. I had to start from scratch making friends and learning the land. My Druidry grew, especially in the first fiveContinue reading “What a Decade! What a year!”

Reflecting on My 2017

Many people reflect on the year upon entering its final hours. I’ve made a point to set some time aside and do so on my blog for many years, so here I am, keeping the tradition alive!  I try to maintain various traditions in my home. It’s become even more important to me as myContinue reading “Reflecting on My 2017”

New Year, New Hobby

Ever since Muin Mound Grove made candles with old candle wax for an Imbolc workshop years ago, I decided that I should try my hand at the hobby.  It felt so right given my growing relationship with Brighid.  A friend of mine made candles for awhile – huge, beautiful pieces of art, really.  She giftedContinue reading “New Year, New Hobby”

Pagan Parenting: Snowy Day Fun Inside

Happy New Year, readers! We’re having a quiet day in because of the lake effect snow in Northern NY. We definitely needed some rest.

If You Give a Druid a Cup of Tea

(This entry describes my morning.  Written in the style of  If You Give a Mouse a Cookie by Laura Joffe Numeroff.) If you give a Druid a cup of tea, she’ll feel very content, almost meditative. She’ll be moved to give some as an offering to her Ancestors. So, your Druid will go to the householdContinue reading “If You Give a Druid a Cup of Tea”

Finishing Up the 12 Days of Yule

Although well into the New Year, I wanted to take a moment and conclude writing about my experience with Three Crane Grove’s Yule Along. My family spent some time honoring our Goddess of the hearth, Brighid, and the Shining Ones. I became a little mixed up at the end.  Three Cranes said they had miscountedContinue reading “Finishing Up the 12 Days of Yule”

The Ditzy Druid Looks Back at 2013

Well 2013, it’s been interesting.  You had some great moments but also some really difficult times.  You were a year of great change and growth.  There was death and birth alike.

The Ditzy Druid Looks Back at 2012

And So It’s 2012

Well, a new calendar year has begun.  As a few other Pagans have noted elsewhere, it is interesting to have celebrated a spiritual New Year at Samhain then a more secular one this weekend.  As others have rightfully said, any day could be a beginning of a New Year, but there is so much collectiveContinue reading “And So It’s 2012”
