Happy Autumn! Condolences to all of our Summer Witches out there.This year has been a tumultuous one, has it not?
So, first off....Charlotte. Raina and I both live here, but were far enough away from the first nights mayhem. I had been through this before with the Los Angeles riots my senior year of high school. I was at least an hours drive East, living in Rialto. Little riots broke out all over the state. I understand the anger, I do not condone violence. I think if the police hadn't put on their riot gear and started tear gassing a peaceful yet vocal crowd, it would not have escalated the way it did, but who knows for sure. The second night and every night thereafter was peaceful.
Second, Pagan Pride was fun but super hot! Like, seriously, we were melting. I have to say though, Wendy Rule was the picture of perfection in her crimson velvet gown. I am so glad I got a chance to meet her and tentatively book her for the show. I got a chance to meet up with Sosanna and her husband Eli from Sosanna's Closet, see my peeps from NCPCOW....Tonia Brown (Author), and Tonie Ervin (Mystic Artisans) had their own booths selling books and amazing wood burned products. Also caught up with Ron from Taylor's Jewlery. It was nice to see them and many more friends.
Today is a lot cooler, my son has off of school and my husband is working from home. I think we're going to go play for a bit :)
Man this year is going by fast, is it not? September is half over. It's been a game changer though....but we're going to talk about happy stuff today. There's enough terrifying stuff going on that we need to focus on putting as much light as we possibly can back into the world.
One week ago, Sis and I had the pleasure of finally meeting Dorothy Morrison in person! If you ever have the chance to take one of her classes, you absolutely should. I was able to pick up a few more of her amazing coffin boxes not yet available for sale online. The Grave Matters and the Bless My Soul, which include amazing new oils and lots of goodies tucked in with them. You should grab some as soon as they're available! We will be sharing the links for both her page and for international shipping, our sponsor, The Angry Cauldron can help you.
So, how did you all fare through the Eclipse yesterday? I personally feel like something has lifted a smidge, but not to the extent I was hoping. Maybe it's a slowly peeling change. I rearranged one of my altars to encourage the changes I would like to see come my way and that I would like to make in the coming months. I would also like to thank, again, the new clients for taking advantage of my buy one get one readings at Cobaltraven's Magickal Notions. I look forward to helping you again in the future!
Just a heads up, I may be re-configuring the lay out and look of this blog. I am realizing it doesn't translate well to mobile.
Bright Blessings! Have a great rest of the weekend.
