Wow it's been a while! I knew that the festive season had gotten in the way along with a whole heap of other stuff and I've been *meaning* to get back to expressing myself, but didn't realise how the time had flown.
Okay blog, I'm sorry for the months of neglect and will try and keep in touch more often now. I gave up following "A Witch Alone" around the time I stopped writing to you and haven't done much but follow the seasons and the waxing and waning of the moon since then.
I've just come back from a week's visit to Sydney and I must say the transition from one place to another is something I'm having great difficulty with. The same with YG. We were both really depressed for the first couple of days in the big smoke and couldn't work out why - then it hit us - the noise, the people, the "busyness" of everything. The same happened when we returned home to our beautiful peaceful shire - I find I'm still winding down from having revved up to Sydney's pace of life and it's stressful!
I've been trying for some time now to get back into meditation without a whole heap of success but while visiting a girlfriend in Sydney, she returned a book I'd lent her quite some time ago. It's called "Trancing the Witch's Wheel" by Yasmine Galenorn and is a really handy book covering the elements, Sabbats and a few deities and miscellanous topics. I've decided that even though I really love "A Witch Alone", it's a little too prescriptive for my liking and so have decided to return to my old eclectic ways and practise in the way that speaks to me best at the time.
So dear blog, as soon as I've finished updating you (and listening to some exquisite music a very dear friend sent me as I type), I'll be recording a Water meditation which is associated with Autumn and listening to it tonight on my ipod before retiring.
