Still kicking – and alive!

Thanks so much to those who have been sending plaintive emails asking if I’m OK. You know who you are!

I am fine. I’m in the process of moving house and haven’t been able to focus on Pilgrim’s Moon recently. But I will be back very soon with news and views.

Warmest wishes to all.

Goodnight Grandpa!

(Did you win an Earth Pathways 2014 diary? See the end of this post.) I used to love the TV show The Waltons. Do you remember it? The large family growing up in Depression-era America, struggling through financial troubles and a changing world seen through the eyes of the eldest son, John-Boy? If you do,…

Is yours an Earth Pathway?

Each year, I get a copy of the most beautiful diary you can possibly imagine. Called Earth Pathways, it is chock-full of poetry and other magical words, art work and festivity. Each day has the phases of the moon and sunrise and sunset times, and the festivals which mark the turning wheel of the year….

Fifteen important things for women over fifty

I was amused by a recent article in HuffPost titled 15 Things a Woman Over 50 Should Own. It inspired me to make a similar list, starting with two from HuffPost with which I thoroughly agree. But although there are some material things to “own” in my list, the emphasis is slightly different: A room of…

On turning sixty…

Yesterday I turned sixty and decided to run away from home. In the extended time I’ve been away from writing here, I’ve been thinking and reflecting so much I thought my head would explode. I’ve dismantled some of the empty priorities I set up for my workaholic self, and am beginning to divest myself of…

Bitten off more than I can chew

Have you ever felt you’ve bitten off more than you can chew? I’d like my life to have the serenity and simplicity of this photograph, but at the moment it feels more like a super-sized Big Mac eaten at speed! Over Easter I took a Peace Break. It was wonderful, and it brought home to me a…

Taking a peace break

  A yellow flower (Light and Spirit) Sings by itself For nobody. Thomas Merton I‘m taking a few decompression days, so no blog posts and no Sunday Collection this week. No Facebook, no Pinterest, no email. I’m switching off my computer and mobile phone. I’m getting out my camera, my paints, my journals, my collage….

Sunday Collection: Relationships

We see life from different perspectives. The view from your top floor window is different from that of my room next to the front door, which is different again for the person who looks out onto the branches of a tree. And although in a house I can go and look at your view, in…

Bright blessings on…

…World Sparrow Day! You thought I was going to say Spring Equinox, didn’t you? Well of course, on this blessed day too, and on the Autumnal Equinox for all in the Southern part of the globe. But my online friend Deb Swingholm (you should check out her website) mentioned on Facebook that today is also…

Sunday Collection: Women’s spirituality

Why a spirituality for women? Isn’t spirituality simply that, spirituality? Well perhaps. None of us can really share what spiritual experience means to us, no matter what gender we are. What I’m talking about in this week’s collection is spiritual practice and expression. And there are many reasons, some obvious, some more subtle, for spiritual…
