-I'm known on the internet as Patch.

My altar is all set up in the new flat with an autumnal cloth. I found the big shell that is holding the incense on the beach! Lots of candles burned last night. I had lots of prayers.
From Saturday onwards I will officially live in just one place again! yay! Therefore, my altar once again needs to be packed up and transported to a new place. This year I am taking the set of drawers that it sits upon … Continue reading
