So…the time shift that I hate twice per year has happened. And here I sit, thinking its an hour from now. Plus, it means that the sun will be a little closer to coming up before me. I’ll miss a few sunrises because of that. Bleh.
Ok…time changes suck, but that doesn’t mean life gets any different for me. I’m still moving forward on getting my class assignments in — and trying to figure out how to jam the rest of my life into a day. LOL
So Samhain has come and gone. This is the time of the year that I tend to disappear on. I get very introspective, and spend large amounts of time on my own. This year was no exception to that. Samhain – and Beltane – are my least favorite times of the year. A huge part of that is the extremely heavy emphasis placed on those two particular points of the wheel by the Pagan community itself. A corresponding part comes from my distaste for crowds. Because of the heavy emphasis, there tends to be a lot more people around. The increase in people makes me antsy — I just don’t like being in crowds of people. Just not my thing folks. Anyways, I spent my Samhain in quiet reflection — doing a lot of inner working. Most of my focus was looking back at the past year — seeing the missteps and successes and utilizing that as a plan for continuing down my current Path. That’s been my formula for Samhain for close to eight years now…and it has worked quite well for me.
There’s a few folks who don’t understand that particular aspect of who I am…and that’s perfectly fine. I’m me. I can’t be anyone else. I’m comfortable inside my own skin — that’s what matters most for me. I can’t live my life for other people, its just not possible for me to do. /shrug
Well, that’s the report for the moment. I’ll try to be a bit more frequent in writing here…hopefully, some of it will actually make sense. LOL
