My Goodness!

My dearest Sherry,
I haven't even started this blog.
And yet I have a visitor.

So I will begin.
I was born on All Saint's Day - November 1.
I never felt close to saints or religious figures. I grew up feeling resistant to religion, even though I wanted to "belong".
Magic drew me like a moth to a flame. Dragons and castles and witches and mermaids. How I longed for that world to be mine.

Then I discovered there was a Magic world called Wicca, Paganism, Druidism, Native American Spirituality - to name few, where people respected the Earth. They lived by listening to her whispers, watching her signs, and working in tandem. If they cut down a tree to build a home or a cook fire, they first asked permission from the tree spirit. If they drew water from a well or fished in a stream, they gave back to the Source.

Then I found out that I was really born on the Day of the Dead. A day when the Veil was the thinnest. No wonder I was drawn to the world of Spirit. No wonder I feel relaxed and happy sitting beside the ocean, walking through a forest or breathing in the sunrise.

Now things felt right, within my body, mind and soul.

Blogging has opened many doors for me. I started by blogging about my husband's illness. How difficult this Caregiving path is. How sad to see hubby suffer. My feelings were validated. Shared. I made friends. I felt support from all over the world. I admit I was surprised at just how caring other people could be. People I don't even know. But - we are all one, aren't we?

I started with Caregiving, felt it was too sad and angry, so went to gardening blogs, which cheered me up considerably. Gardeners are wonderful people, respecting and nurturing the soil. From there I met others. People who blogged about spirits, and faeries, and imaginary characters. Well, if they could blog about enchanted forests and whimsical creatures, then why couldn't I?

Home of the Faeries is my inner world.
My Caregiving blog was my outer world. I no longer want to be identified solely with Hubby's illness.
I want to voice.... me.

Won't you join me on a journey where we will dance with elves, sing with birds, hum with bees, stomp with trolls and gnomes, swim with mermaids and do whatever we please?

Welcome to my Creative World.
Let us play.
