Well, there's the prepping for Beltane, which yes, starts this early if we're smart about it, later if we're not! Full moon gatherings at our home. Wicca 101 that I, and a friend, are doing together and another class I am taking on my own. Planning for Sunfest, including kids crafts. Other Worlds of Wonder meetings. Halloween Haunted House meetings we're starting now so we don't drop the ball. As many healing rituals as I can fit into any given week, as I am watching too many people that I love struggle with ill health, while I am not perfect, I have my health and a lot of positive energy right now. Let's see...does that cover it? Of course not! There is the 14 year old that cannot plan a week in advance, so repeatedly upsets herself when the world refuses to rearrange because lack of planning on her behalf does not constitute an emergency for anyone else. Also in planning; the mother in law that is coming to town and must be seen, an initiation for a young pagan woman and the complete revamping of our back yard. Oh, and the full time job, yes, lets not forget that. I mean, its just time, right? :]
I look at all these things and, for a moment, I sound unhappy or too busy, but just thinking of all that must be, can be, should be, will be done and the upcoming weather shift to the warmer immediately changes the "too busy" to "perfectly, happily, peacefully busy". Festival time is fast approaching. I can almost hear the drums already, like a heartbeat. I am starting to smile and wave at strangers on the street, even if they look at me like I've lost my mind.
I have been sponsored by one of the most amazing groups of people I have ever known and have begun a journey I did not know existed 6 years ago when I thought "Sunfest sounds like it would be fun!"
I have met and grown to know, perhaps, the largest spirits I will ever come in contact with. They are magnificent in all their imperfect glory. With them, I see there is so much joy. So many things to look forward to. So much honesty and love.
I am living a very blessed life.
Looking forward to it.......oh so much.
