Pause in Blog

Whether permanent or not, this blog is now combined with my other one Alchemy of Clay. http://blackmtnbarb.blogspot.com/
go there, and then follow me over there. The personal and genealogical archives, and Black Mountain NC scenery and my potting life are combined. It's a good thing.

Foggy morning thoughts




Our ritual in honor of the 13 Indigenous Grandmothers included three levels of setting intentions.  We asked for the level of our personal lives first...then for our family/community, and then for healing the earth.

We may not be Indigenous, nor grandmothers, but we honor the land, the web of indeterdependent life, and have a sense of how real power is shared between all aspects of life.

Our ideas for our future group meetings include perhaps welcoming men into the group, and maybe having a "goddess of the month" topic to share with each other.  But for now we are releasing the monthly meeting, and will have a last gathering to have a closing celebration of the past 5 years of the Women's Spirituality Group.

I know I will miss this regular sharing of spiritual ideas of the divine feminine.  It will certainly be included in my book.

Your photos look like our morning here -- misty, moisty, mysterious,

While I'm not a part of any spiritual tradition, your post (as well as some of Byron Ballard's on ancestor altars) has made me look at my seasonal display in a corner cupboard --- bones, feathers, rocks, pictures and other representations of animals, a fossil or two -- without trying, I seem to be honoring the deep past.
