Samhain...rememberance......


Samhain is a special time for me, a time put aside from my everyday living, a time to reach out to the people beloved to me, and for me to send my love to them across the mists of mystery, to speak and say, that they are remembered forever in my heart and will be part of me until we can be together again and rejoice. This week I lost a most beloved friend...enough said.
Make merry , love and be loved,
Tears, hugs and kisses

Who has the answers??

Snippets from home

I seem to be sewing all of the time


Reflecting on who I am

I have a book it is like a bible to me......'Simple Abundance' by Sarah Ban Breathnach, 13 years ago it made me think about what I really wanted from my life, I am still struggling with this question, it is still a terrible battle.

How do I live a life without material desire, I covert so many things. I desire so much, I have a passion for loveliness, both in creative form and spirituality, fortunately nature provides most of what I desire, but there are other things, that have to be bought, and paid for!! I have over the years succeeded in cutting myself off from some of the temptations of material desires, and from the people that peddle them, yet I still find myself unable to ditch the computer, the car, the radio. I have to work to pay the bills, where do we find the balance, how do we make our lives authentic? How do we care for our soul.

Be Blessed with a loving week

Love and hugs Lynn xx

We are no more or less than the stars............

Leaving my work, I run out into the late afternoon sun, the shadows grow long and cold fingers of late shadows begin to creep on the edge of the soft sun. I know we are encroaching into the dark, the damp scent of decay is present and I feel the land is slowing down. I adore this time of the year, there is a gentle magic and an introverted sigh as we let go of the summer and it's riches. All is falling to rest, all is beginning it's simple long silent wait until Yule.

I am the waning moon,

The Goddess who is fading from the land,

When you see my power fade

And the leaves fall from the trees;

When snow obliterates like death,

All trace of me upon the earth.

Then look for me in the Moon,

And there in the heavens you will see the soul of me

Soaring still amongst the stars.

When I am hidden, I am renewing

When I am waning I am making ready for my return

Remember my promise and look within you,

And there you will always find the spirit of me.

May we all be blessed with a loving and peaceful week.

Love and hugs Lynn xx
