…Seek the Solitude of Self

I LOVE Wednesday.  I am off work, and nobody is home so I am free to be as me as I want to be.  Sometimes that involves gratuitous nudity, sometimes just nachos.  Most Wednesdays involve magic of some sort and a lot of study time, as it is one of the few times I am completely as uninterrupted as I want to allow myself to be, until about 2 PM when boy three gets out of school.

IMG_0552I have been a bit out of sorts for a while, so I took a small road trip.  I needed to go where I could feel grounded, be in solitude but I couldn’t range too far.  I picked a place that I have only been to twice, but is very significant in my mind and in my craft.

No doubt some of you recognize where I am at.  That is right, and it has been since November since I have had an opportunity to visit.  I wanted to come at first to just see if there was a lot of snow on the ground, to see how cold it is, etcetera, but I stayed for the calm, the quiet, the ‘vibe’ and of course for the communion and the energy that has been gathered there.

The God and Goddess are in all things, and in all of us and everywhere.  Sometimes though, like the white altar candle we have lit, there are places that are special and set apart.  The energy and the spirit of the place overwhelm the mundane.  The space between I and the God and the Goddess, the ancestors and those that have taught us these ways is thin.  The magic is palatable and it was just what I needed today.

It is true that I have been at other of our Sabbat sites more, but today I feel as strong of a connection as I did back in September with this place and knew that I would feel right and grounded again spending some time here.  I spent time in meditation for a bit, I communed and had discussion about things that needed to be said and questions that needed to be asked with those that were with me in my solitude.

There are a lot of changes in the air within my Year and a Day and in my mundane life as well and I did not get all of the answers I am seeking right now, but I have direction again and am stronger for it.  I wish I had the words like Susie the Uzi to put into poetry, or Lord Tanys or Lady Atheona’s pipes to oput it in song, but I have words on page letting myself know that for a brief moment in my world all was right and good.

I am excited to visit this special place again soon.

Blessed be.
