This week, the Daily post decided to choose the theme ‘From Above‘ for the photo challenge. And here’s my interpretation of it:
I Think WAY Too Much!
I had a long weekend. Friday was a public holiday, here in Mauritius. Yet, as I’m writing this, on Monday morning, I realise that even though I should have had more time to do what I had to do, I in fact did not. I even didn’t have the time to check out WordPress and check my mail as I used to!
What happened exactly?
Well, on Friday, I got my hair cut (again haha, I tend to keep it as short as a boy’s), then since it was a holiday I went to my grandma’s and during my spare time, I blogged (my last post) and did Art homework. Fine.
It was on Saturday that I lost it.
My mind, I guess.
In a few hours, as predicted by the Mayans – or more precisely, the media – we will all be die. It is the end of our world.
Do you believe in any of this? I don’t. In about 2 hours, here it will be the 22/12/12 and there still hasn’t been any tsunami warning or violent cyclones or incoming flood or deadly earthquakes… Or not even snow. (NB: it never snows in tropical regions, so if there will ever be snowing here in Mauritius, I believe it might be a reason to get worried.)
Today as Wiccans we are celebrating the Spring equinox, also known as Ostara. It’s one of the eight Wiccans sabbats and thus a time to be closest to the God and Goddess. Blessed Be!
It’s an ideal time to take a walk outside in parks or forests… Be around nature. Feel its motherly energy.
I’ve read that earth meditation is great too and very simple to do, especially if you’re a solitary practitioner. You just have to lie on the ground in a natural park/place where you won’t be disturbed and start taking in the vibrant energies that the Goddess provides in such a blossoming time.
Therefore, merry Ostara everyone! Whether you being Wiccan or not, we are all allowed to celebrate Spring together :)
An Evil Nymph.
I have my own religion. But as most of you know, I’m a big fan of Wicca :) Yeah it’s all the fuss about witches and sabbats and esbats, but also runes, rituals… and crystals. Gemstones. Did you know that they contain powerful energies that can help you in your daily life?
One day I was at a fair and there was a small stand of crystals. I’ve heard much about the quartz so I wanted to get one. Of course my mom didn’t want to buy the expensive ones so I have to be satisfied with a small rock crystal. I then searched his properties and all… (all this will be linked below) I copied everything in my Book of Shadows – a Wiccan diary let’s say – and then, I forgot about it… School had just started and all.
But then I watched this:
Hey guys, I wanted to post earlier but I was bothered by the exams results and school and all…
Anyway today is my favourite Wiccan festival – excluding Samhain and Beltane which are the two main sabbats of Wicca – which represents the beginning of spring: Imbolc or (what I like to call it best…) Brigid’s day.
After the coldness of winter, spring at last begins to show its colourful flowers and green leaves… The sleep is over and a new season of growth and beauty has sprung up.
This is a fun craft to do on this special day which is Brigid’s cross. I did one last year with multicolour straws and I kept it for this year:
It’s really true you know, the fact that your characters tend to build the story by themselves. My NaNo novel is quie different from my actual planning, but that’s great. As I type on, I keep getting more ideas, I get to know more about my characters. It’s awesome!
And how is NaNo stalking me? Well, my story is about Angels and Daemons and right now I’m concentrating on the most gorgeous one called Gabriel, and on Saturday when I went shopping, I could stop seeing ‘angelic’ things. Don’t worry, no Hallucinations! What I mean is that in stalls I could see clothes which make you feel like you are an angel when you put it on, just like this one:
The Wiccan festivals have a gap of 6 weeks between each of the 8 ones. Six weeks ago, on Lughnasadh I signed up into WordPress. So as today is Mabon, the festival of the Autumn equinox, it has been six weeks since I joined the WordPress blogging community. Wow. So much has happened since! :)
To all my readers therefore I wish you a Merry Mabon! Whatever be your religion… as here we are united by the passion of writing and expressing ourselves, not by anything else.
