Thoughts on Moving

Happy paper plate day! What? What’s that you say? You don’t know what I mean. Well, I suppose I should explain. Two weeks from now I’ll be moving to a new dwelling. The Fates however have presented a notable challenge… I will only have 33 hours to move from one place to another. Normally I would leave a solid week to move but this time I don’t have the luxury. That being the case my wife came up with the idea to switch to paper plates for these last two-weeks so that we could pack the dishes away early and be even more ready for our journey. I wanted to update the blog and give notice to why my activity has been sparse. I’ll be focusing free time gathering up my belongings moving them a few miles down the highway and unpacking them. It might be some time before another post but if anyone wants to check on me follow me on twitter – @wiccanfriend. As soon as I settle I’ll be able to get back to research and another wordy, hopefully insightful, blog post. On the bright side the new place will offer some office space and it is my hope to be able to use it to my advantage by devoting more time to posting and personal research.

In the mean time I hope everyone is enjoying these last few months of summer. I am starting to notice the sun setting earlier in the evening and that excites me for the coming fall. Or as fall as Texas gets, which is actually closer to slightly cooler (rather less hot) summer. I also want to thank all the readers who have been emailing me over the last month. I have really enjoyed my correspondence with you all. It is always my pleasure to answer email and must admit enjoy any kind of feedback/ connection with readers. Blessings to all.

Isaac Bonewits, lost but not forgotten.

It is with a heavy heart and tears in my eyes that I am writing this.  Isaac Bonewits has passed from this world and life.  I don’t pretend for a second that I knew him or for that matter have ever met him, but I have read some of his works and both respected and looked up to him.  Other people have already said it much more elegantly than I ever could.  Their words and acts touched me and I hope somehow reach Isaac so that he knows what an impact he has made.  My heart goes out to his loved ones and those who knew him.  If I feel this bad I can’t imagine the grief you have of losing a friend like him.

New Beginnings

Personally I believe that positive affirmations are essential toward real change.

The Affirmation of a Witch:

As long as I am alive I can control any situation I am in.   I can not only control myself but have the knowledge to start forward the wheels of change of those who are open to it.  I harm none and my word is truth.  I believe in the God and Goddess who light my path and grant my heart peace.  The path I walk is one that I created, because pain from effort is only temporary.  Pain from regret last forever.
