Remembrance Day 2018: a richer dust

Today marks the 100th anniversary of the end of World War 1, then called The Great War. No one imagined that another war of such devastation would start just two decades later.... or the rise of so many conflicts, wars and terrorism across our planet to this day.

Bealtainne Blessings for my Southern Hemisphere friends

The first day of May — or a few days later, if we observe “true” Beltaine —  has been celebrated by many cultures in Europe as the first day of Summer, especially by early pagan cultures — from the Romans and their Festival of Flora on April 27th to my Celtic ancestors who celebrated Beltaine… Continue reading Bealtainne Blessings for my Southern Hemisphere friends
