gratitude friday 10/31—Samhain

Good morning, ancestors. Good morning, mom. Grandma Fannie. Grandma Mary. Aunt Buddy. Aunt Hennie. Aunt Rae. Good morning, Grandpa. Good morning to my cultural ancestors: Good morning, Janis. Good morning, Billie. Good morning, Jimi. Good morning, Lenny. Good morning to my spiritual ancestors. Good morning, Mother T. Good morning, every witch who was burned or drowned or otherwise murdered. Good morning, Shekhinah. Good morning to you all. I invite you to be with me all this day. I’ll have dinner with you tonight, mom.

I am grateful for the wheel of the year. For light in the darkness and darkness in the light.

I am a grateful woman.

Blessed be.

I’m a barely tamed hippie, sage, seasoned, sarcastic (not all the time any more, but still). I’m a mom, a daughter, sister, a neighbor, and a friend. I’ve been on this meandering journey — like you, probably — seeking a better connection to and experience of peace, harmony, and fun in every bit of life. I’m single, quite good at it, and mostly love it. I’m here for the conversations I get to have with you, which these days center on exploring the mystery and beauty of life, work, health, aging, and creative expression.
