It’s Friday. I have stage fright. Phew! Breathe. Breathe and breathe again.
I have a lot to do in tonight’s ritual: give my Astro report, lead a grounding, and invoke/devoke Ame-no-Uzume—and be her. Be a dancing, bawdy, drumming goddess whose antics entice Amaterasu out of her dark cave, bringing back the light. Oh boy.
I am grateful. I am so grateful to be in this community. It’s what I wanted. I’ve gone from doing solitary ritual to a new level of commitment and collaboration. How cool is that? It’s what I wanted, and now I have stage fright. Lalalala. It’s always something.
I hibernated last night. Got in the car to jet over to hula class late, cutting the time close, and then remembered I was low on gas. That did it. Back home I went and had an early quiet night.
I’m grateful that I’m pretty accountable to my commitments. Not perfect, but pretty good. Certainly much better than I ever was before.
I’m grateful for my noontime AA meeting; yesterday I took a treasury commitment. First time in my clean and sober life!
I’m extremely grateful for my health. And for joy peace and happiness, which I wish to all.
Namaste, blessed be.
