gratitude friday 9/5

Gathering the Goddess starts today. I was going to link to the festival site; it seems to be gone now. Oh well.

Almost packed. Next a shower and food.

Am traveling with Rowan and Luxor. And I will be using my witch-name, Raven, all weekend; see how it feels.

I am grateful for friends. For adventures like this. For willingness to participate.

I am grateful grateful grateful.

I am blessed. With mentorship and wonder.

I am grateful to take the next right step even when there’s a knot in my center of fear and anxiety.

I’m grateful for being included in a friend’s birthday celebration. And for taking the time to make her a card.

And for hula practice.

For my mutual funds being stable. For this moment.

All is well. 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.
