Nes Galan Gaeaf (The Eve of Winter)

 We may not have the beautiful full moon of last year, but falling on a weekend without snow is very much appreciated by The Living and The Dearly Departed.  Remembering, seems to be more, during my Crone years.  Many FUN friends and amusing relatives have pasted,  time has cast a congenial glamor, over much of a turbulent past.  

THIS recent world plague,   loved ones have gone too soon, travel restrictions and lockdowns keep us apart, and vaccination is necessary for our survival.  I am a fan of the Victorian/Edwardian era and I am sensing a blip in the scheme of things? Has history been ignored Yet again?

Insomniac"s Attic has my clothing matching the dilemma of the times. I did enjoy flopping around with my grand-daughter last year. We get each other and that swells my old heart.  Seasonal Music was made for me years ago by Shari, my FairyArtMother , and I longed to play it for the kids ( boys too old for such things now, sadly, but enjoy their Nana's antics)  Thankfully it made our lockdown Halloween Fun!  Jersey Girl to the rescue with much loved timeless tunes!

Hallow's Eve is my tattered souls night.  I find such peace at night, when the wind stops and the sky winks devilishly 

My last bonfire was last Samhain as well and I seem to have known it would never be that wonderful again. I captured it for Remembering!   Yes I always carry Flame Enhancer with me for occasions such as this!

May this be our Last restricted celebration year!  Raise your pointy chins and shout with ME!  

                                        " DRINK UP WITCHES "

FarAway Friend Emma!   (Little Gothic Horrors aka the tenebrous rose) sent a Samhain2021 declaration
to me to pass on to All of You!   Here is to a WiserWorld and Kinder Hearts.  Cheers!

                                     Dia de los Muertos
  Celebrated with Love by the Living xo

May you all have a Comfy, Safe Winters rest.  

Thank you to All for always being there xoxoxoxoxox

Finally Mabon ! 2021

 I padlocked the AC controls enough enough!  No more dripping nose, numb finger tips, brain freeze and not from delicious ice crème.  If the pandemic does not wipe out humanity, a massive power failure during global warming will. (cranky when cold)

Yes! Yes! Mabon!!!!  Gratitude, everyday, but today a special celebration.    Longtime virtual friends and my family,  first and always.  As the oldest living female for hmmmm 3 generations, I am thankful to have broken that trend, for now.  I am grateful for my curious nature, and with age, came a talent for letting go of things I know longer have the will to change or rescue. Oh! and the wonderous full moon!

My new laptop is wonderous to me.  It now must sense my ancient computer skills and sends me suggestions,  on how to do things much better.  Well then why can I not link my of site pages?  I have been blog cleaning up if you have noticed and have run into WTF moments.  TBC.

I subscribe to Patti Smith on her writers site. ( ) Imagine being a writer, poet, pop culture icon your whole life!  She is the real deal , I admire her immensely.  So, on her page she sends us her writings, personal voice messages, songs her & her longtime band mates are working on and regardless of the hour or where she is, she remembers to update us all.

 After I got the courage to comment, on one of her stories, (my ever conscious"I am not Worthy" Garth syndrom,)  I received a comment back! from her! OMGoddess! 

This was so worth the subscription and then tons!  
Few have impressed me in my journey, to the point of dumbfoundness,  Patti Smith is one of them.

As well, I am a patreon of  "From the Mind of Christine McConnell". (  I was introduced by one of my blog friends, ? Help me out if you remember.  Insomniac or Little Gothic Horror, well! what fun she is!  Artistic Talent and entertaining!  Sadly netflix did not renew her Halloween special , but I think it can be searched, I must check/  Now she lives in an amazing historical old house on the east coast, small town, closer to Ontario than she was in California!

To round out my creative fun, I send mail to unsuspecting virtual friends, and my grand-daughter!  What is the sense in learning new things if you dont share!   Plus the walk to the post office/drugstore is healthy! hahhahhah!  

I do remember who started this,  @ the tenacious rose on Instagram .  'Draw in your own Style' by @gin_robbins on Instagram.  20's Vamp my fav.  Ginny Robbins is a brilliant illustrator and her work is amazing.   Many joined her challenge, even me!  It only took a month and half an eraser to dare show my offering .  Ginny kindly helped me put my drawing in with the  group, also getting the official tag. (who does that? helps like that! a real artist, that's who!)

Healthy Family,  I am as curious as ever and my Country voted correctly again! 
I am truly, sincerely,  Grateful !!!!

Mabon 2021 

Best of All
