Sad Cat, Dancing Dragon

Unfortunately I am unable to attend today's Autumn Celebration, the CNY Pagan Pride Festival. I have look forward for months to this event, but my knee injury prevents me. Yep, I am bummed. It is a beautiful day for it and lots will be going on. Seminars, workshops, music, vendors of all kinds, food, fun and a memorable Mabon ritual. (Mabon is the name of the Autumnal Equinox sabbat). I posted about last year's Festival here
I wish everyone a wonderful time and hate that I have to miss it.


Okay, okay, enough with the sad cat image!! LOL! Onto other things!

In case you were wondering, and I know there are those who have been biting their nails over this, I did finish reading the massive fifth book of George R.R. Martin's A Song of Fire and Ice series, A Dance With Dragons. This is the book I had started listening to on audio during my Eye Event, and ended up purchasing the actual book later. Actually I finished it before Labor Day, and Kallan, I will be emailing you with my thoughts on this book.  This book had a lot of great moments, and some not so great.

A quiet weekend then for me. A lot of reading: autumnal celebrations, moon rituals and a couple of great fiction books (witchy in nature, of course).

Bright Blessings!!

I am so sorry to hear that you will have to miss this years Mabon Celebration, but I am sure you will have next year to look forward too!

Regardless, sometimes I think that peace and quiet is a wonderful thing and I hope you enjoy a very spiritual and meaningful Mabon at home!

Brightest Blessings always,

Kim

I'm so sorry you will be missing the Mabon celebration. I know what it's like to miss it all. I have bad arthritis in both my knees and a bad back. I have missed a whole years worth of rituals and celebrations, so I really know. I hope you get better my dear and Happy Mabon

Blessed Mabon to you, too, Leeanna. I am so sorry for the arthritis and back problems you endure. Healing hugs to you!
