I was given a place to stay by a dear friend, and it was at first only going to be for a couple months, August max... then October... then December... then March. My daughter just gave up hope and adapted. Smart girl. Funny story though. I was at work, just kind of daydreaming about what kind of place I wanted to rent mixed with what I could afford. My ideas were idealistic, as always: big yard to roam around and practice my path in, window facing the sunrise, window facing the sunset, modern interior, small enough to be cozy and efficient, big enough to breathe in, open sky to view the stars, rent within certain amount, nice, quiet neighborhood... but not too quiet... my family is rather boisterous when they visit, neighborhood roads that were bike-riding friendly, not too far from school, closer to my mom.... the daydreaming went on for a while. Then the phone rang, and I stopped writing on the bright pink sticky note to answer. I work at an advertising shopper. I do graphic design and office work. A young man was calling from the town I lived in wanting to advertise a small two bedroom house for rent. Reeeeeaaaaallllly. How much? Reeeeeaaaaallllly. Hmmm.... Sophie and I toured the place that evening, and the following Friday we were moving in. True story. The daydream manifested almost instantly. Absolutely amazing. Divine timing at work indeed.

We have adapted rather quickly, and it feels so good to have my own space again. As much as I appreciated my friend's hospitality and generosity, it just wasn't my space and I haven't felt free to move about in a very long time.
Along with the move, I have also been busy taking part in SouLodge, an e-course by Pixie Campbell taking participants around the medicine wheel. It was a journey to be sure. I recognized 8 and possibly 9 of my animal totems.
This course was so good for me, and I recommend it to anyone who is currently doing any conscious soul work. The lessons and crafts were enlightening and the connections made within the 100 wild woman circle were so meaningful and touching to me. I will probably be going back for the spring session as well. Thank you Pixie. It was just what I needed. You are beautiful! If you are interested here is Pixie's link.

Coming soon: My Persephone and Hecate Connection.... oh and house pictures!!! Did I tell you I started an Etsy store? Oh my.. it's good to be back.
Here is my Etsy link.... we have several more things to list, pretty hippy skirts, yoga bag, aprons. Will try to get listed this weekend. Not much confidence here yet, but it is growing!
