I sounded like Danny Da Vito (pardon if the spelling is incorrect) this morning, in the scene from Twins when he discovers how much the engine prototype is worth that has now come into his possession ............................................... Eighty one point twwwwwwwwwwwwwwoooooooooo kgs!!!!!! I am still saying it now. Darn those stretchy pants that hide eighty one point twwwwwwwwwwooooooooooo kgs so well!!!
In the morning we are expecting rain. I will be out preparing one of the garden beds for planting out some glorious Tasmanian purple garlic. Also putting down some old hay over the pathways to supress the weeds. But for now it is goodnight and sleep well dear witches.
Needless to say, I'm kind of new at this whole Wicca business. Now, I've been active in Druidry and what some would call "Traditional Witchcraft." However, it should be noted that field has become somewhat labeled, exclusive, and myopic.
But, now to the point: One of Wicca's tools is affectionately called a "Book of Shadows." Even though I just completed Lesson 5 (tools), I didn't learn why it is called that. Perhaps with more time, I could've hit enough sites to discover why, but the sites I perused didn't have a satisfying answer. That led me to develop some speculation.
I have never been so glad of a waning moon : ) My brain has reacted in a frenzied manner this full moon.
Even so ....... at this moment in time, I still love her energy........
As a seeker, I really like to explore a lot of different aspects of this "witchy" path. Therefore, not only have I been studying a couple of Wiccan traditions, but also some traditions of Traditional Crafting.
As you may, or may not know, Trad Crafters hold Wiccans of any tradition with some disdain. Most of the sites I've visited enjoy the company of certain individual Wiccans, but definately frown upon Wicca as a whole. One trad crafter went so far as to actually say, "Don't read Buckland."
Well Spring is here, my favourite season obviously, and with it comes a sense of hope, feeling of excitement, new beginnings, new life and a time to be reborn. It is time to shed that winter coat that has so kept us warm in the colder months. Methinks it’s time to take more care of my physical ‘self’ by amping up my workouts at the gym. Time for some much needed ‘self –love’ and time to shine and show and be my true ‘self’.
Since we have gone "wireless" and I can use the computor where ever I am, I have discovered
the community that thrives, gives and shares of their wisdom on Youtube. One of my favourite
sites is made by a wonderful lady named Annie. Her site is called MIRTHandREVERENCE. Check her
out. Many uploads. Very helpful for the novice ( thats me folks ) Beautiful soul.
Bright Blessings dear friends
Just to put the time scale into the picture for you, the 'tubes' which are small stalagtites hanging from the ceiling take hundreds of years to form, the longer stalagmites and stalagtites (that don't join) take thousands of years, the columns (stalagmites and stalagtites that join up) take tens of thousands of years, and the white flowstone in the first photo forming a large block take hundreds of thousands of years to form.

There is so much going on im my life at the moment, and if I jumped out of my body and looked in i would
think I could get throught it. I can, and deep within myself i know I can. i want to look back to this day and
be proud I did get throught it, but something is stopping me from wanting to pick up that book, wanting
to do a protection spell for my house, I feel my own body is stopping me, whether that is from all the stress
my body has endured or something else, I dont know, but whatever it is, im going to fix it. )O(
How quickly time passes as you get older. When I was a child days seemed to go on forever, summer was neverending, winter was really winter, cold and bleak with shedloads of snow, but we didn't mind the cold and the snow offered hours of fun. Schooldays were long as were school holidays and time seemed to stand still, and I couldn't imagine being as old as my parents. Fast forward to when I turned 30 and things were different. I was married, had a child and days passed by in a blur.
The Community Church of Inclusive Wicca Incorporated (CCIWI) was formed in 2008. It is an officially registered church and not-for-profit body under the South Australian Associations Incorporation Act 1985 and its Public Officer is Dr. Ziggy Smith (Amethyst Treleven).
Well I must say within the last few days i really have surprised myself. I went to have a meditation yesterday and i was laying down visualising for lesson one. All was great and I fell asleep....woops. I awake to my husband and the best smelling food, I turned to him and said, hunny what are you cooking, he wasn't cooking. That spun me out a bit, and teased the tastebuds lol!
I joined a fantastic bunch of people to complete a Fastnet challenge aboard a 22 metre Challenger yacht from Portsmouth UK around the Fastnet rock and back to Portsmouth. It was mentally and physically challenging with little sleep, plenty of food, biscuits and tea! Working in teams of two watches 4 hours about during the day and 3 hours about at night, where the routine rotated about working the boat, eating or sleeping. You come of watch wet and back on watch wet! The challenge was awesome, the company fantastic and the memories second to none, looking forward to the next voyage.
This is my first 'blog'...

Merry Meet. This is my first blog, and it is a question. Do any of you happen to have any helpful info about strange energies and or entities... maybe how to get rid of them? While I was doing the lesson I am now on, I was to visit certain places and see if I could feel any energies or emotions of people that had once been there.
As I sit here with my clinique mask on my face pondering my journey as a witch, I wonder, can a witch be lax in his/her practice? I suppose they can and if so, I surely am.
I have not yet written in my nature diary this week as it has been absolutely cold outside. I've been practicing visualization and meditation as well as recording my dreams, however sparse.
I wake up between 10am and 12pm and stay on the computer most of the day only to go to bed between 12 and 1am.
Merry meet everyone!
So I have successfully acquired copies of Paul Huson's 'Mastering Witchcraft,' as well as Andrew Chumbley's 'Azoetia.'
I have begun reading the Huson and I find it quite fascinating actually. It's different than anything I've ever read concering the history of witchcraft.
I look forward to completing this book and beginning the Chumbley.
