I open to the Dark Half of the Year

There are some who see Samhain as the beginning of Winter, just as they see Lughnasadh as the beginning of Autumn, but that has never worked for me. To me the Solstices and Equinoxes mark the very beginning of the associated season, with the Fire Festivals the

Thinking About – Samhain

"It's the most wonderful time of the year..." The voice sings during the Christmas TV advert I will doubtless see this coming week, but I know for many of my friends this is actually their favourite time. It's not mine, but I totally get why it is

Next one? What if there isn’t a next one…

Thinking About – Lughnasadh

Here in the Northern Hemisphere we are approaching the first harvest. The festival of Lughnasadh, or Lammas is raising its head and peering over the horizon. It's a bitter-sweet time for me on my yearly journey through the seasons. I've watched as the grey has turned to

Tales from the Road – Pagan Spirit Gathering part 2

Find Part One here ...we met my guitar and Jason at Paducah the next afternoon just fine. So all was well. Jason ended up being my flat mate for the week. I’d met him very briefly at the Michigan Pagan Gathering quite a few years back when

Thinking About – Inheriting Magical Items/Paraphernalia

I've been in the recording studio all week working on the Y Mabinogi project. The good news is that it's been an amazing three whole days and it's moving along very nicely, but I thought I would pull my head out of the headphones and type a
