Following Our Hearts

January 6, 2013


Approximately 5 years ago, Dh and I began to contemplate his impending retirement from the military.  For nearly 25 years, he had served in one branch of the US military or another.  The lifestyle had become our family’s reality, and the thought that we could do go anywhere in the 50 states that we chose […]

Another Look At Gratitude

Comments Off on Another Look At Gratitude

The day has the potential to be a very busy one, however, I am happy to say that the service I will be presenting to the Fellowship tonight is done!  (And for that… I am most grateful!) Admittedly, I procrastinated.  I didn’t start writing and organizing it until this morning.  Why?  Especially when things are […]

Small Stones: Vigilance

October 30, 2012


Two protectors sit.  Warm beams of light cuts through the chilled air. Ever vigilant, they listen and watch.  Furry heads turning this way and that. The safety of the pack, of hearth and home will be assured. The alpha female feels protected. Loved.

Tools: Small Stones

October 27, 2012


To be honest, I heard about small stones from, my dear friend and Heart’s Sister, Ashtoreth Eldritch1 some time ago…  But, unfortunately, it was a discovery that I had made at a time when I was slightly unbalanced and little ego had me moving headlong in a different, rather futile, direction. (Remember me mentioning that […]

Breaking Free From the Comfort Zone

October 11, 2012


The week, it has been a busy one on this end, on all levels – mentally, physically, and emotionally.  Yesterday was no exception, but today… I am finally being given an opportunity to slow down, recharge, and follow my bliss.  How have I begun it?  By checking in with all of you – my wonderful bloggy […]

Mad Dash of Caterpillars: Everyday Musings

Comments Off on Mad Dash of Caterpillars: Everyday Musings

The morning has been a busy one already.  Even this need be a quick visit, given that there is still much more to be done.  It is all good, though. I went in to town this morning.  Normally, I try to schedule my errands in such a way that I can get it all done […]

Gifts of Life: Magic

September 29, 2012

Comments Off on Gifts of Life: Magic

In order to find magic, we must first believe it exists, but not in the manner that many of us grow up to believe.  Not the magic of mere fantasy or illusion… “There will be no foolish wand-waving or silly incantations in this class.” ~Severus Snape, Sorcerer’s Stone by JK Rowling In order to witness real […]

Our ‘Salvation’ Through Enchantment

September 28, 2012


As I sat down to write this post, it was my assertion that, despite the advances in our culture, here in the West (predominantly the US because that is my area of experience) we are not an overly happy people.  I did not, however, wish to say so without first checking my facts… Did you […]

Everyday Musings: Introduction

Comments Off on Everyday Musings: Introduction

Recently, I sat listening to a podcast with Guy Finley on Healing With the Masters.  During the talk he spoke about believing; about belief, and he said essentially it means to ‘be alive in’, putting whatever it is into practice everyday. “When my first child was born it was time for me to begin practicing […]

Gifts of Life: Autumnal Emotion

September 25, 2012

Comments Off on Gifts of Life: Autumnal Emotion

One thing I’ve noticed is there are times I will get so bogged down with the hustle and bustle of life that I will forget that there is life beyond all the activity… so much beyond it and, if we are willing to slow down and quiet ourselves, we will feel it. With that in […]

Personal Re-Alignment: Happy Friday!

Comments Off on Personal Re-Alignment: Happy Friday!

Friday! It has arrived!  And am I ever relieved? It has been a very busy week here.  One filled with much activity on both the outer and inner realms.  Home life has kept me running.  In some moments, I have felt much like a chicken with its head cut off, but there have been many […]

Happy Friday: We Made It!

Comments Off on Happy Friday: We Made It!

In the past, with Hiccups In Time, I did the research, “listened” to the wise sharings of the “gurus” of the blogosphere and did what I could to make ensure its success. I took the mental approach with it.  Set a posting schedule, even scheduled posts to publish at just the “right” time.  As a […]
