Hello There

My thoughts about Traditional Witchcraft, Wicca, cooking, gardening, and anything else that catches my fancy.

My New Wand

I want to show off my beautiful new wand, made by craftsman Karl Feret (who also supplied the pics.) It's got an Ash handle, an ebony shaft, and an Amethyst embedded into its tip. He's made all my wands for me, and I couldn't be more pleased. I've got a new one, Hazel and Rowan, coming soon.

Where I'm At Now

Ok, it's been years since I last posted. Want to fill everybody in on where I'm at in my life.

*I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and chronic migraines back in '05. Since then, I've sort of gone through good and bad spells with my health, but in '07 I started to really go through bad times, and in '09 I went on Social Security Disability. I still work, very part time, now and again, but I have to take it easy and have a lot of "bad days."

*When I started my blog, I was on a spiritual journey. I tried out a lot of different things, but eventually settled on Eclectic Witchcraft. I've always been interested in Witches, and when I was a teenager I learned about Wicca, but I was really too young to understand it properly and, after a few years, drifted into agnosticism. A couple of years ago, though, I felt the pull again and started practicing once more. I felt like Wicca was not for me, so I am exploring a lot of other Witchcraft traditions like Feri, Reclaiming, and Traditional Witchcraft. Right now, I just call myself a Witch without committing to any particular tradition or rite. I am wanting to join a coven, though, so we will see where my quest takes me.

*Because I have so much free time, when I feel up to it I like to garden, cook, and check out new places to eat. I live in an apartment so I don't have much space, but I've taken up container gardening and have a nice little stash of herbs and flowers. I'll post pics once I have some good ones.

*I am still dealing with my "gender issues" and am still undergoing changes. Not sure how far I will take things, but it's been quite a journey.

Anyway, I am going to try and be good and blog regularly. I'm hoping to meet new friends this way, and I already have a few blogs that I am absolutely mad about.
