Ebooks and poverty and privilege

 A link round-up done by elf surrounding the impact of ebooks taking chunks of creative works out of the print books pile and how it will effect those (especially children) who grow up in poverty. The impact on rural communities. The ethical twist of ebooks having a "number of reads" allowed in the public library system. The […]

Autumnal Equinox Ritual

After a guided meditation on light and dark self and some symbolic crafting of ribbons and charms based on the meditation, we did a bit of divinatory rune dipping. Each of us dipped our hand into an opaque bag containing runes, pulled one and drew its symbol on a card. We then returned the rune […]

Gaslighting – a Must Read

From  madelienegrey  “A Message To Women From A Man: You Are Not ‘Crazy’” You’re so sensitive. You’re so emotional. You’re defensive. You’re overreacting. Calm down. Relax. Stop freaking out!

Gratitude Project – for abilities that never fail

Today was a bit of a rough one at work. Much angst and other emotions flying around full tilt wild and swirling ~ and I just caught the edges of it and *whoosh swish* dropped it into the ground. Calm and centered throughout the day. "Is this in my control?" Nope. "Ok, not mine." *whoosh* […]

Circle of life ~ sometimes makes me sad

I’ve been watching the 2 gray squirrels that live in my yard, chasing each other up and down tree trunks and jumping from one tree to another, hiding their food in the one spot that looks like a grave – for almost 2 years. Earlier this evening the The Fierce Yorkie barked like mad out […]

Gratitude Project – for surprises that are well met

 My daughter planned and organized and accomplished a surprise 30th birthday party for her beau. It was lovely, well done, and full of laughter, fun and happiness, good food and good friends and family. (You will notice I judge the success of any event by the laughter, food, and company. I can even tolerate mediocre […]
