By Earth, By Sea, By Sky, By the Gods of my people; Be welcome all who come of good will.

May you recognize in you life the presence, power & light of your soul.
May you realize that you are never alone, that your soul in its brightness & belonging connects you intimately with the rhythm of the universe.
May you have respect for your own individuality & difference
May you realize that the shape of your soul is unique, that you have a special destiny here, that behind the façade of your life there is something beautiful, good, & eternal happening.
May you learn to see yourself with the same delight, pride & expectation with which The Gods sees you in every moment.
I will rise, I will go back
To the white & silver shore
I will have courage,
As the sun does rising & setting
At birth & death the gift of life is precious
Soul-life streaming down the strand
I will go as the sea in its turning
I will rise, I will go back
I will rise
Prayer for courage
- Caitlin Mathews
Blessed are those who watch over the land, blessed are those who protect the secrets of the earth, blessed are those who remind us of who we are, and those who remember us after we are gone…
From the earth you have risen…to the earth you return.
Emerald O’Brien in Yasmine Galenorn’s “Murder Under a Mystic Moon
May a rainbow gladden your eyes
May soft winds freshen your spirit;
May sunshine brighten your heart;
May the burdens of the day rest
lightly upon you;
And may the gods of your ancestors enfold you
in the mantle of their love.
May the blessing of the rain be on you—
the soft sweet rain.
May it fall upon your spirit
so that all the little flowers may spring up,
and shed their sweetness on the air.
May the blessing of the great rains be on you,
may they beat upon your spirit
and wash it fair and clean,
and leave there many a shining pool
where the blue of heaven shines,
and sometimes a star.
I realized at my grandmother’s funeral if I followed her pattern I could live another 50 or more years. My goal is to be healthy so that I may to enjoy them. That means losing weight and to stop making excuses for not doing the things I enjoy.

I am now on disability, due to (in no particular order) Kaspar Hauser Dwarfism, Type 2 Diabetes, & COPD. It makes for complicated dietary requirements.
I am a native of Denver, CO and except for college and 2 years in FL I have always lived here.
I will acknowledge my 25th anniversary in May and my divorce will be final shortly after that. I am 54. No kids, but share my life with a black cat.
I am high priestess of a Celtic Tradition coven and have been for more than 30 years. I officially began my path 43 years ago this October. In addition to my day job, I teach witchcraft, Irish Myth, Irish History, & meditation in my local community.
My faith surrounds & supports me and makes the rest of my life workable and worthwhile.
I have an MS in Parapsychology & a DoD (Doctor of Divinity). Which have no bearing what so ever on my day job, but come in really handy in my real life.
I am an avid reader, particularly of Sci-Fi/Fantasy. I love to garden, watch tons of Hockey when it’s in season and embroidery while watching TV or movies at home.
