By the way, April is National Poetry Month!
Today I celebrated the Solstice with the ADF Grove of the Red Earth, the first of their rituals I’ve been able to attend. It was a lovely thing, with a delicious feast afterwards. Thanks for the invitation and hospitality, folks!
I hope it was as wonderful for y’all as it was for us. While Daddy was taking a nap, I did a little work on the site here, continuing the process of migrating things from the old format into WordPress. It’s going to take more time, but eventually, all the pages will be uniform. Really! If […]
Plinky asked, “When was the last time you enjoyed the great outdoors?” Does a suburban pool count?

Water From Rock, Easier Than Blood From Stone Gypsum, a rocky mineral is abundant in desert regions where fresh water is usually in very short supply but oil and gas fields are common. Writing in International Journal of Global Environmental Issues, Peter van der Gaag of the Holland Innovation Team, in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, has hit […]
I’ve certainly had a sweet one :-) Michelle Sagara wrote a wonderful post today about how mothering is like writing.
Is anybody celebrating that this year? I’m out of touch with the pagan crowd any more. I think the St. Patrick’s Day parade here in Atlanta was canceled because of the tornado Saturday. I was at home all day, so I didn’t bother wearing green or even thinking about it. One of the “daily quote” […]
