Today I scheduled
a ride to Unity church.
A friend recommended
the church to me on my birthday.
I also learned a co-worker
of mine also goes to the church.
I am reading the book
To Ride a Silver Broomstick by
I am on the section in the book
that is talking about the sacred days
of the Craft which is stressing me out.
I love celebrations and want to participate
in them like the Beltane and Yule I celebrated
in during previous years, but they are few and
far between since I last participated in them.
Usually I don’t have money to buy all the festivities.
I usually am alone and I don’t have a sisterhood that
celebrates these holidays with which makes me feel sad.
For example, I spent Midsummer’s Eve instead of around
a bonfire I was on the Internet talking to a woman who
had a bonfire in another country.
She was doing what I dreamed about.
Another woman in another country was celebrating the
solstice in her own way.
I don’t know how to counter the loneliness I feel around holidays.
My birthday was on Monday July 11
and I spent the day with a Druid
who gave me his Robin Wood’s Tarot deck (Witches’ Tarot Deck)
with beautiful illustrations
And we went to Next Millennium
and I bought a Triquetra necklace,
a rainbow pouch with sage, and an amethyst ring.
For the first time I wasn’t lonely and he said I was beautiful
and he was attracted to me but he was married.
He thinks my New Love card I pulled represents him.
Honestly, I don’t see any other prospects around.
It was a very nice birthday though because he shares
the similar spiritual path that I do.
