Merry meet all,
I sat outside on this windy November morning in my backyard. My cat is perched lazily on her scratching post, spying on everything that moves. The wind blows the leaves in a symphony, signaling that the dark season is here. I felt coaxed outside by the wind. I heard it as I slept. I love listening to the wind. If you listen hard enough, it will whisper secrets to you.
It is still Samhain. The energy is still strong in the air. I notice it even more when the skies are overcast and the trees sway in the wind. I love this time of year. I plan to work through the book Walking the Twilight Path by Belanger finally. I bought a new notebook and look forward to this project.
As I read her book, I viscerally felt the energy of the words. I felt everything she wrote so I think I will have a good and maybe morbid time working through it. But today the wind blows hard and the rain splatters my window. I can’t write in a graveyard today. I live near a graveyard and it is within easy walking distance.
There are two kinds of people in the world. Those that fear death and cemeteries and everything associated with it. Then there is me who practically embraces all that and worships it. I don’t fit in with most people. I try hard to be anything but normal. I don’t care. I am what I am. Ok I could use a longterm love partner- who accepted my weirdness- and a better income. I am working on that. I believe that to develop fully as a Witch and a person, it helps to embrace all aspects of yourself- the good and the bad. But it is good to improve your shadow side, the side you don’t like to admit. Then you become more powerful once you take that step.
I love this time of year. It is so close to my heart. I hope you all had a magical Samhain.
