Happy New Year! I missed posting last week because I’ve had internet connection issues this week. Everything is back to normal now (I hope) and I’m really excited to share another poem with you this week.

I firmly believe ghosts are real but what if we can’t see them? Or maybe some … Continue reading Poem: Ghostly Stalker
What’s the first book you ever bought? The first book I remember buying was a paperback copy of A Little Princess by Francis Hodgson Burnett while on a family holiday to Singapore. I remember it clearly, partly, because it’s attached to another memory I have that happened in that bookstore. I was seven and it … Continue reading The First

I've been spending the day with good friends and my dogs, catching some sun and working on Samhain Sorcery as well as blog posts. … Continue reading Blessed Beltaine
