Interlude

So I’ve been very quiet on here lately, unintentionally for the most part, certainly quieter than I meant to be. I’ve almost finished reading A Pagan Journey Through Europe by Prudence Jones and will be starting to write up my book review for it soon. My next book arrived in the post today so thankfully there won’t be a gap where I am without a DP book. So my next book is a Hearth Culture book – The Saga of the Volsungs: The Legend of Sigurd the Dragon Slayer and the magic ring of power.

I’m in the process of finding a safer nature spot for the summer here because there are an unusually high number of snakes (This is Australia and they are quite venomous snakes – feel free to google Eastern Brown Snakes and Eastern Tiger Snakes to see why I’m not keen on tangling with them) about this summer in my normal spot. I’ve been making do by sitting under the giant willow in my garden for now.

I haven’t had a chance to do the weeks in the Through the Wheel of the Year for the solstice yet, but went to my local groves solstice and took part (I had the part of the Nature Spirits and got to make the secondary offering to the creek near our circle). So I’ll be writing properly about that soon.

I recently made an Earth Mother statue out of clay for my altar and she has since been decorated and added to the set-up. I’ve also put doors on the altar so that the cats can’t get in, however I’ve used a wire centre on them so that it remains visible and doesn’t feel cut off from the world.

Anyway normal updates following the Through the Wheel of the Year weeks will resume soon.
