Blessed Samhain

Blessed SamhainHappy November all, and I hope you had a wonderful Halloween and Samhain!I’m sure I’ve mentioned before how learning tarot has taken me in and out of witchy circles.  I didn’t mean to learn about witchcraft or paganism when I started learning about tarot, but I did.  Almost immediately I started picking things up from those that I looked to for tarot instruction.  Pretty soon I was actively looking for more information, piecing together tidbits of information, determining if they fit with the previously unnamed beliefs I’ve had for years.  Some didn’t.  Many did. ...more

Average Jane's Halloween

I've finally reached the age where my desire to participate in Halloween activities has certain limits. For example, I'm fine with parties but I don't want to wear a costume at work or anywhere else in public.

As well, it was a rather difficult and melancholy time for us around Halloween last year. ...more

I Love Halloween!

I adore Halloween, and I seem to just see a lot of posts about people who don't like halloween.  And, don't get me wrong -- there is plenty to NOT like about Halloween -- the excess of Candy, and the pursuit of the excess of candy.  The gross and disgusting costumes.  How girls are sexualized so darn early with those gross costumes.  The dark and how some people really like tricking more than treats.  Those are all gross things.  Don't even get me started on the spirit store...

Happy Halloween 2013!

I’m taking a break from Honeymoon recounts to wish you all the spookiest possible All Hallows Eve. Plus, on Day Three of the Honeymoon we mostly traveled by plane and train to Edinburgh, arriving too late to do any real touristy things. Although I did take a picture of an advertisement for electronic cigarettes using a meerkat that needed to be documented: ...more
