Originally I wasn’t going to celebrate Samhain this year. With the recent passing of my Poppy I wasn’t sure if I was ready.

I’m sure I’ve mentioned previously, but for me my new year begins at Litha, not when the Gregorian calender clicks over. I also don’t understand why many of us make the same resolutions at… Continue reading Welcoming the new year
