I needed last week. Whilst on holiday over easter, I walked down beaches and in woods; identifying the wild flowers as I went. I read lots and sat in the sun. Upon my return, I met with friends old and … Continue reading
Tonight as always I celebrate Hekate’s Deipnon. I have tidied and organised all my mundane crap, and tonight I will ritually cleanse my living space with bay. This month, as I did last month also; I will honour Hekate and my ancestors. … Continue reading
