The Ditzy Druid Travels: The Vikings Exhibit at the Canadian Museum of History

At the end of February, I got a chance to visit the temporary  Vikings exhibit at the Canadian Museum of History.  It was a wonderful experience, and well worth traveling to if you’re in the region.  There are many permanent exhibits to check out when you’re done learning about Vikings, including a museum just for childrenContinue reading “The Ditzy Druid Travels: The Vikings Exhibit at the Canadian Museum of History”

Meditation, Nature Walks, and Beloved Grovies

I’ve had a busy but wonderful weekend full of learning, beautiful weather, and old friends.  I feel exhausted, and my feet hurt, but it sure beats lazing around with Netflix all day! Yesterday I attended the first in a series of meditation workshops at the Kripalu Yoga and Wellness Center.  Local reiki practitioner and long-timeContinue reading “Meditation, Nature Walks, and Beloved Grovies”

Meditating on Ériu

Last year started what is clearly becoming a tradition for me.  As March is Irish Heritage month, I take it as a time to reflect on and honor the sovereignty Goddess of Ireland – Ériu.  Chelly has also been focusing on her and shares some wonderful musings in her latest post.  I was inspired and reminded ofContinue reading “Meditating on Ériu”

I Met Venus in Ottawa

I’m sure most couples who plan a babymoon look to warmer climates for a romantic getaway.  Not us.  Weretoad and I looked north and went to Ottawa, Ontario.  We so enjoy that city, and being winter-tolerant folk to begin with, it just felt right.

Living Druidism as an American

Sometimes, I ponder my path in relation to my location and nationality. There are times when I can’t help but wonder if my Druidism is somehow “less connected” than if I were actually living in Ireland, Scotland, England, Cornwall, etc…  Am I less connected to the Tuatha de Danann who are so intimately intertwined withContinue reading “Living Druidism as an American”

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”

The Ditzy Druid Does Niagara Falls

Hello everyone!  I’m back from a delightful vacation in Niagara Falls, Ontario.  I went there several years ago – in my later childhood and again in my early teens.  Each time was a bus trip with my sister, parents, and grandparents.  Each time we did some great things – Marine Land (which I no longerContinue reading “The Ditzy Druid Does Niagara Falls”
