Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday to the calendar… Happy birthday to you!

It’s a new year (according to some people) and I have lots of little things that people left behind at the Yule celebration. So, if you’re missing your children or small pets, please get in touch with me. I’m taking care of them to a minimal extent and will be happy to give them back to you for a nominal fee.

A note about River Rock: when we hold gatherings there, the play room is totally off limits. The lovely homeowners of the community have very graciously and generously offered their common house for our ritual and dance use and we need to be respectful of the space and their rules. Thank you.

Another year of community, celebration, prayer and blessings… Here we come!!

Thank you all for your beautiful participation, contributions, intentions, wisdom, and presence in the last year of ritual and music circles!

It is an amazing privilege and honor to serve this community and share sacred space with all of you.

May the Goddess shine her benevolent, peaceful light on our next cycle around the sun!
