Another Turn Around the Sun

Well, it’s been another year of my life… and what a year it’s been! I am so thankful for the sun and warm weather after the past winter. And while I didn’t necessarily enjoy the winter very much, I am thankful for the experience and the being forced to deal with, well, shit. Not to say that it’s over because I think now I am to look at it from a bit of a distance, as a whole, and delve into the spiritual Work that needs doing. There’s a reason why these things hit us hard, and I have a feeling it’s ultimately going to shape my path.

Look at me, all serious! Well, honestly, things are getting serious. I feel as though I’ve only been standing close to the fence after jumping over it into paganism as a fresh teenager; never daring to really walk in the shaded forest beyond. It’s definitely scary, sometimes shockingly so. But I am glad for it.

Well, folks, today is the day that I have completed 23 turns around the sun. I am quite optimistic for the coming year! Not only will I finally be going to school for singing (operatic of course!), the man and I will be moving out to British Columbia for me to do it! It is quite an exciting time indeed! 🙂
