Merry meet Sisters, Brothers, and Guests,
I am now living in a very laid back, rural place to the point of the nearest small town is 20 minutes away by car. Which means there is real time by looking at a clock but there is also small community time. The latter includes not knowing when the internet installer for this area that lives about an hour and a half away will have enough calls for installations and/or repairs to make it worth his while to travel here. All I kind of know is I should have internet before the cold weather comes which is around the middle of September or maybe a little later. So in the mean time I’ve gone to a larger data packages for my tablet and cell phone to be able to post from home instead of walking down and up a hill with a 35% grade, in others pretty steep for me to walk on a regular basis. I am going to try to hook my cellphone up to my laptop as a hotspot today, wish me luck that I don’t explode one or both devices, so I can post from either my laptop or tablet. The bad part of using my tablet is that you will get a little less information from the birthday horoscopes and Moon Phase. Just wanted to let you all know what is going on so you do not wonder why certain topic may have less information.
My familiars and I are settling into our new home nicely and all of us love the freedom from being bullied. I will post some pictures of the land around us as soon as I get the hotspot thing figured out.
Until we marry meet again may you all have a beautiful and magickal day.
If you had emailed me and have not gotten a reply please resend it. Thank you!Thank you for the donation that have been sent to help with my move and the things I need to start a new home again!
Please listen to the first group’s story of how the became a choir and to the words in their song. I was in tears listening to them and I also feel it was an honor to hear the Voices of Our City sing. It was an inspiration to me to do more for the homeless where I live in a suburb of Chicago, Illinois. Yes, even in the more affluent towns, villages, and cities all across the USA there are homeless people whether you ever see them or not they are there. Even though many of us have small incomes that next time you see someone asking for money on the street why not go into the nearest place that has any type of food to go and buy them something nourishing to eat or if it is a very hot day get them a bottle of water. After I pay my bills I have barely over $100.00 a month to buy groceries with and to live on every month but I always put $10.00 aside (that in honesty I cannot afford to do) so if I run into one of my towns homeless population I can buy them a little something that is good for them to eat and a large bottle of water or cup of coffee depending on the season of the year. This way I know the money is put towards helping them and not helping to feed any type of addiction if they have one.
Now turn your volume up on whatever you are reading this on and listen to how one woman made a difference in many homeless people’s lives by starting a musical group. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2kABHoszPHU
Say a little prayer or light a candle to thank the Universe for all you and your family has been given. Remember how blessed you are to have a warm or cool place to sleep, enough food to not feel hinger pains, and decent clothing to keep you warm in the cold months or just to be seen in when you go out anywhere.
I do not hold to only April 22nd each of being the only Earth day. To me part of my path as a Witch is being an environmentalist 365 days every year.
Since I could walk as a 1year old child I was taught to enjoy the boutiful eye candy Mother Earth freely gives to us each and every day. I was also taught to bring at that time a very small trash bag to put the liter in that we would pick up trash that others left behind. Even at this young age it pissed me off.
Fast forward a few years to when I was around 3 years old and my family would go camping. Here I was taught to leave our campsite cleaner than we found it before setting up our big tent. But here my parents made a game out of it…whoever picked up the most trash, rocks, twigs, etc got an extra toasted marshmallow that evening. I know now that they always conspired to let me win.
Fast forward again to when I was around 9 years old attending Brownie Girl Scout day camp. By this time whenever I left my home I carried a bag to pick up after litter bugs, a new name I had just figured out what it meant. My dear mom was the leader of my regular troup but at day camp she just did art projects with the girls for many troups. She was surprised during a lunch break whenn she was told I was causing quite a stir with passing out small garbage bags to eevery girl saying in each class, “My mom always says we have to remember to leave the place we learn at and the hiking trails we walk cleaner than we found them.” I was even giving all the adults bags.
Fast forward to me being a mother and instilling the same message to my childern who have carried it on with their children.
The noral of this story is “Always leave whatever part of Mother Earth you travel through especially on foot cleaner than you found it.”
Blessed be dear ones.
I was finally able to take a real walk today. It was marvelous even with overcast skies! Before I left I listened to the USA’s NBC channel nightly news and there was a heart touching short segment of children writing cute and some inspirational messages in pictures and words. When I took my fur girls out for their 1st walk with me in over 3 weeks (sprained wrist than overlapped a mild case of COVID-19) I noticed this type of chalk art on the sidewalk in the direction we walk. Uplifting statements like “Be brave”, “Your with family”, and “Sing a song” are just a sampling of what was written. This inspired me to join children and adults across the country to write my own message. I uploaded it on Instagram on the 1st #chalkthewalk. Please join the children, adults, and myself in leaving a message for others. If anyone can make a # with the name #PagansChalkTheWalk please email me at email@example.com so we can talk about setting up the # tag today Friday, April 3rd. Thank you!
Please keep those on the front lines taking care of infections people. Many doctors, nurses, and everyone else in the hands on part of caring for people with COVID-19 worldwide that haven’t been home in weeks or months because of their tiring mostly thankless job they have choosen to do. Blessings of staying healthy to you all.
