Bard Me

Friday, August 29, 2014

I had a wonderful thing happen. I may have mentioned that my spiritual Family named me Bard last year, a position for which I have no training save my musical ability and occasional songwriting. The last Bard in the Family passed quickly due to cancer before he could pass the training on.

Because of my feeling under-prepared, I joined ADF (Ar nDraoicht Fein, Our Own Druidism) in the hopes of getting some bardic training. Last week, the lady who has been head of the Bardic Guild decided to pass the mantle (just not in good enough health) and managed to mention that she CREATED the Bardic training for my Family back in 1992 (and I remember her performing the barding ritual of the last bard). I have gotten in touch with her, she only lives about 35 minutes away, and is excited to get to meet me and has agreed to train me. This is major whoopie!

Falling off

Monday, April 21, 2014

Had several friends and a cousin visit me lately, all of them bringing or buying food. My scale broke. So am I. Going to be a few weeks before I can get another one.

But I'm safe and happy and it has been a long time since those things have b een true. I have lots of SparkFriends and friends on Facebook and IRL friends. So I'm not in danger of eating my way back to anything, just took a side trip. I was hanging around 205-208, probably up as high as 215 now, but that's still in shouting range of sub-200 and I'll get there.

Yes, Lady Mary, lots of water.

Hugs,
Moss

Moved In

Wednesday, March 05, 2014

All my stuff is in now. My stress levels are way low. I have tons of stuff to do, but I'm doing it one box at a time. It feels so good to be out on my own again. I hope it's a long time before I'm whining about needing somebody. I have lots of good friends, online and off, and a couple wannabe sweethearts that I can just keep away from.

I'm still putting my new budget together along with my apartment. I lost my jacket, and it had a couple of my good pipes in it. Still not finding some things I "know" got moved here, and I'm sure Buffy has found some of my things, whether she will admit it or not. And I still have to decide whether I will go capture my cat, Dottie, who ran away but is hanging around Buffy's house, and smuggle her into my apartment without a pet deposit (until I can afford it).

Things are really tight. My mother is probably tired of helping me, and I'm sure I've said that before. I think I can squeak by now, but there may have been a bill or two I forgot about.

But I'm happy, and I can take care of myself.

Moving Right Along

Monday, February 24, 2014

I got accepted for an apartment! Yayyyy! I can move on with my life, and get out of the Big City. It means more driving to work every day, but when I'm home I can just walk everywhere. My health care, grocery store, bank, post office, library, etc. are in walking distance, even a pizza place!

Thanks to all of my friends sending positive energy for this to happen!

    LOL Druids do NOT live in caves. They were often attached to the local ruler as their chief advsor.

Druidry here I come

Tuesday, December 10, 2013

As a birthday present to myself, I joined Ar nDraoicht Fein, the main organization of druidry in North America. I've known Isaac's work for several decades, and helped as much as I could during his final year, and have become friends with his widow, Phaedra. I have been named Master of Bards by my spiritual family and felt in need of bardic training. I don't know what other signs I needed. So I bit the bullet. Have not received my intro materials yet but hope to be kept very busy with my new studies.
