For me, summer is usually frustrating. It’s usually spent fretting, waiting for publishers to get their asses in gear (they practically shut down during summer and it’s really hard to get them to move with any speed on anything), and I usually spend most of the days in my office (not unusual) due to deadlines […]

It’s hot and muggy here. We have entered summer. It was eighty-five degrees here. The plants are loving it after the massively wet past six months, but it was a bit much for me. My comfort zone for summer runs around 72-75 as a high. Tomorrow, thunderstorms are supposed to break, and I hope it […]

So, a few things have been happening. Tomorrow is Mabon, the Fall Equinox. For Pagans, it’s considered the second harvest—the harvest of fruits. You might think of it as a non-secular Thanksgiving, when we give gratitude to the Goddess of the Earth and the God of the Vine, and when we celebrate all that we […]

Continuing from yesterday: So, we’ve had a lot of upheaval on the website as we switched over to a complete WordPress site, and I know it’s been frustrating for readers. It was such a huge task, that it took us longer than we expected. Thank you for hanging in there, things are almost back to […]

I had a rough past week, but I’m determined to make the next one so much better. What with allergy reactions and the fallout from them, it was not easy this past week to maintain my equilibrium. And I often find a residual reaction tends to be that I spiral into depression. I have come […]
