Three Things Thursday: Luis, These Witches Don’t Burn, and an Introverted Conference

Each week, I share three little things. This week, I’m contemplating luis, I’ve got a short book review for you, and I reflect on a writing conference I attended on Zoom.

Each week, we focus on one symbol, or fid,Continue reading “Three Things Thursday: Luis, These Witches Don’t Burn, and an Introverted Conference”

Three Things Thursday: May Bushes, an Easy Bealtaine Garland, and More to Read,

May Bushes I’m sad that my grove is unable to celebrate Bealtaine in person this year. That means no Maypole, a tradition many modern Pagans enjoy during this holiday season.

Over the last couple years, I adoptedContinue reading “Three Things Thursday: May Bushes, an Easy Bealtaine Garland, and More to Read,”

Three Things Thursday: Self-Care, Feral Witchcraft, and an Excerpt

Take Care –  Although “self-care” has become entangled with commercialism, I still find value in the original essence of the concept. Pausing to make time for ourselves and our spiritual, creative, or physical needs is important, especially when so much weighs us down. Between the news, some stressful situations at work, and such, I leftContinue reading “Three Things Thursday: Self-Care, Feral Witchcraft, and an Excerpt”
