Dec 22nd, 2017 | By

Winter Solstice didn’t go quite as I expected this year. I had intended to watch the live link from Newgrange and then take some time to sit in the stillness to reflect on what I was ready to let go of. I then wanted to make a Despacho, a form of prayer bundle, before lighting

Wow! even after writing, in one form or another, for most of my life I still feel that tangible tingle of anxiety creeping up my spine at the sight of a blank page in front of me. I sit, fingers frozen, poised inches above my keyboard, wondering how to begin my first blog post for
