There is no separation, you are part of me

A few days ago I was witness to a post going viral on the internet. I shared an article that Cerri wrote on her blog about Magic and Tolkien that was titled 'Finally I understand why Tolkien’s Elves make me cry'. I simply shared it on my

From the Solstice to Imbolc

I confess that I have always found January to be the hardest month of the year. Named after the God Janus there is a real sense of things not quite beginning yet, with the God's faces seeing both back to the old year, and forward into the

Well hello 2019! Lovely to meet you!
