Missed it again

Due to a pulled muscle in my back, I didn't celebrate Lughnasadh...yet.  I do plan on having a ritual soon.  As soon as I am able to lift stones so I can set up my outdoor altar.  Which should be in a day or so.  It never fails that for one reason or another, I rarely ever celebrate an event on the same day most others are celebrating it.  Still, this isn't an astronomical event so the exact date isn't crucial.

I missed the New Moon as well.  Some day I'll be more observant, which is what I want, not what I feel pressured to achieve.  I'll get there some day.

I haven't done any reading the past several days either.  Which I need to do as they are library books and will need to be returned eventually.  I get sidetracked so easily.  Ever since chemo, I swear I've got adult-onset ADD.

Well, I'm hitting the bed very soon so I'm going to sign off and have an early night.  Hopefully.  I saw the sun rise again this morning before sleep overtook me.  I'd love to get that better scheduled as well.



  1. Boy, you sure are being hard on yourself. If you were alive you didn't "miss" Lughnasadh or the New Moon".

    I hope I don't sound to bossy or harsh (I know, I know....I always do) but just tuning into the energy of each of those days is enough. I know you say you don't feel "pressured" to be more observant but upon reading your blog I always walk away feeling you are still carrying much of the pressure and guilt of Christianity's "go to church on Sunday" bullshit.

    I was not raised Christian (or any other religion for that matter) so I have no idea how hard that is to shake, but I still think you are entirely too hard on yourself.

    You are walking your Spiritual Path. That's all that really matters.

    I say these things from my heart not my head.

  2. You never sound bossy or harsh to me. Just a friend who wants to help.

    I know what you mean, but ritual used to be a part of my life and since leaving Christianity I've had little of it. It's mostly that I was used to the ritual being performed and me being the participant and it's harder to be the administrator, especially when I'm winging it.

    I do appreciate your perspective on it. I am much too hard on myself. :)
