Oh, Blessed Dirt

Life has been hectic for us here lately, so many things stirring in the cauldron– the good, the bad, financial, medical, personal, business, both positive and negative.  We’re still in the Middle-Of-Life, though I hadn’t expected this at the tale-end of middle-age.  Needless to say, “Stress” has been our companion, my companion, for the past several…

Garden Magick @ Hedgewytch Hollow (photo blog)

I’ve about knocked myself out this year revamping our gardens and grounds.  It has been a lot of work, and I’m not finished yet, but it’s also been a lot of fun, and it’s turned out to be a wonderful creative outlet.   (Spirit Chimes in the “Old Garden”)   “The Old Garden” is my…

Spring 2012 @ Our House

I’ve been working like a crazy woman this spring redoing garden spots, adding new garden spots, planting, mulching, planning, shopping, and creating.  It’s been a hoot, and I’ve loved the bonus of this early growing season.  I’ve added several photos to a new garden slideshow, and I’ll be updating this slideshow from time to time…

Prairie Summer Magick

I don’t know how Laura Ingalls Wilder survived the pioneer age through summer heat and humidity with no air-conditioning and not even one lousy electric fan. I would’ve died.

Dreams, Magickal Formularia, & Fairie Realms

I have a new dream to add to my journal, it’s incomplete, one scene out of an entire adventure, most of which can’t be remembered, but it’s visually memorable:  An Indian (Native American) village is burning.  I don’t see the flames, but the smoke is thick and curling, sulfurous, twisting through the air like dirty gray…

Wytchy Chit-Chat: It’s Been a Long Week

I feel like I’m waking from a fog.  This past week I’ve been sick with the flu, in bed most of the time, filled up on Ibuprofen and cold medicine, sleeping off and on, and waiting for the moment I would feel normal again.  Well, that moment has finally come– ta,da!– and none too soon;…
