• Thanksgiving activities

    Well, the busy Thanksgiving season has passed and we’re now into the insanity of holiday shoppers who seem to lose all reason, propriety and courtesy.  Good luck just getting your weekly groceries without someone running you down with their cart, their screaming kids rupturing your eardrums, or dealing with overall unpleasant behaviors.

    Spent Thanksgiving at Greywolf’s house. He, his lovely wife, and their roommate fed us an amazing meal.  Now that I can move after that amazing repast, I wanted to share some of the other adventures of the day.  We spent a few hours at Jerrys’ rock shop, oohing and aahing over lots of gemstones, tumbled stones, and other cool items. I encourage everyone to stop by if you’re looking for extremely reasonable prices on precious stones and gems.  They can be found on Route 1/North just outside of Saco.  Here’s their website as well: http://www.jerrysgems.com/index.html

     Later that weekend I also stopped by for the Grand reopening of End of the Rainbow Alternatives, a holistic shop on Route 2 in Farmington.  Here you can find a variety of natural foods and supplements, as well as bodywork and supportive groups.  I’m hoping they eventually get a drumming circle going as this would be a great way to share music and rhythm with people looking for connection and joy.  You can find the ladies of the rainbow at:  http://www.endoftherainbowalternatives.com

  • Post-Samhain

    Samhain has come and gone, and there was an inch of snow on the ground today.

    Briarwood’s ritual was solemn and celebratory, with all of us honoring those Ancestors who’ve had an impact in our lives.  A toast was raised to many traditional Craft elders – Gerald, Doreen and Stewart. 

    As we begin our Long Night, in anticipation of the Sun’s return at Yule, I hope that everyone finds much needed rest, the purchase of a sun-lamp (we’re in Maine, folks), and gentle care of yourself.
