My dear friends, I am so very sorry that I have not been around for...well, quite a while. There have been many things going on in my life that I have had to deal with. Some things were very pleasant, and some were not so pleasant. Needless to say they were all time consuming! I am hoping that these things are now resolved and I can go about living a normal (ok, semi normal) life again. I do apologize for being absent and silent for so long. I will be returning to activities very soon and hope to see you all on the boards here at Care2. Thank you all for the beautiful comments you have left while I was absent. I hope that you are all well and are having a wonderful time!
This was the time when the dragons roamed free
when across the land all you could see
was the wandering ways of the Gypsies who sing
of the ruthless sword of the Christian King.
This was the time when the wisest of the Clans
sent out the word across the lands
to hide thyselves and all thy do
Keep thine own council, and remember "to thine own self be true"
Let not his spies catch any sight
of poppet or besom, cauldron or spice
keep thyselves hidden in family and fold
his ways are cunning, his warriors are bold
He seeks to destroy us, everyone
from the oldest of mother's to the youngest of son's
Keep to yourselves the ways of the Ancients
remember them only in songs, stories and chants
Pass them down from Mother to Daughter
Father to son, remember the Goddess
and all she has done
Honor her ways and keep her Sabbatts holy
and let them all know, should they enquire,
WE ARE STILL HERE,
WE SURVIVED THE FIRES!

Today throught the misty blue it came
the awakening of my soul
It brought with it a reckoning
that seared me to the bone
It made me face my darkest fears
in its attempt to make me whole
It brought about the truth's untold
of a past I could not bear
It showed to me the pain I caused
to the ones I'd come to hold
It laid upon my grieving heart
the sins of my desire
It raked me 'cross the burning coals
to purge me with it's fire
It tore from me my darkest parts
and then in comfort came
It set my feet upon the path
having rid me of my shame
It showed me all the Goddess held
and showered me with her light
It wrapped me in a veil of truth
and gave me back my life.

|Wild Fact About Me
||I am driven towards championing losing causes!
||To thine own self be true. Do whatever it is that completes you as a human being and try to make this life the best it can be. Try to leave this world better than you found it.
|What Gives Me Hope
|If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
||implement Higher funding for education and provide legislation to give equal and complete medical care to all people no matter what their religious, ethnic, political, economic or social background.
|What/who changed my life and why
||I'm not sure that I can pinpoint one particular thing. It was a series of events that opened my eyes. Becoming a parent was a major factor. Perhaps the most compelling event was the day that my then 5 year old daughter was watching the program "feed the Children" before school and stood there crying and asking me "Mommy, why don't those babies have any food?". That was truly devastating to me and really made me re-evaluate my life and goals.
|What Bugs Me
|What Scares Me
||To Thine Own Self Be True
pretty much anything! I like it all and
Anything that makes you think,
or leaves you with a warm,
fuzzy feeling when you leave the theatre
I don't watch a lot of TV anymore
Anything with a lot of flavor
|Can't Live Without
