Grateful Traveler

Got home from Magical Mountain Mabon in New Mexico late on Tuesday evening, and I’m starting my trip to Piedmont Pagan Pride Day in Belmont, NC this afternoon.  Zoom!  The Mabon event near Tijeras, NM was an absolute joy.  The campsite was gorgeous, and the community were eager and generous with their level of participation and support.  I am better for having made the trip, and that whole tribe has my great gratitude.  

For a bonus, I got some quality time with my friend Kat Heatherington, who has a book release coming up!  More info on Kat’s book release and her poetry here.

I also got an all-too-brief visit with my song-sister, heroine, and fellow Green Album songwriter Wendy Rule and her husband, composer Timothy Van Diest.  We had a gorgeous hike up above Santa Fe on Monday afternoon, and two excellent meals together before Ryan and I headed east for home.  If you don’t know Wendy’s music, written and understood from both sides of the veil,  go here. Tim & Wendy have a new collaborative album right there on the front page!


I’m looking forward to my time in NC.  It’s been too long!  Linked below are some of the sweet sights I brought home with me from the high desert.
