Blog changes

In an effort to get this blog back on track I have simplified it, deleted some of the attached one-topic blogs
and focused on Sabbats and Esbats, which was the original intent.
Other writings will be in 'stumbling upon the path of the goddess'
and the Borrowed Book of Charms is still active.

the drumming

Drumming Up the Sun was well worth attending. There was a cloud bank along the eastern horizon so there was no dramatic moment of sudden sunlight, instead a gradual light increasing and lighting the clouds, turning them from grey to pink to white. The weather was mild and comfortable. My sister went with me and we sat with some friends. The drumming was fun. Everyone sort of doing their own thing until the sunrise got close and then the beat synchronized and the sound grew.

Just sitting there, watching the light and listening to the drums, I thought about how people have been gathering on this day for thousands of years to do this.
And even now, when we have scientific explanations for everything, it is still magickal.


  1. Sounds fabulous! Solstice blessings to you!

  2. That sounds like a lovely tradition. You describe it beautifully.

  3. I can only imagine...wish I could have been there with you!
