More pages from my other book

The Picture again is from a National Geographic.

These are the next few pages. I think it is strange that I have two books but this one has helped me organize the other one. Sometimes our perfections gets us stuck or as I talked about before our lack of belief in our own abilities. For me it is not my ability in the craft so much (though I continually learn more every day) but my lack of belief in my writing and spelling.

I didn’t find out I had dyslexia until I was a junior in high school. So I had a lot of years where teachers and others were confused about me. They thought I was smart but maybe just lazy. My writing was illegible and I still have the spelling of a fourth grader. This made me not want to share my writings with others. All that said it was important for me to just start. Just write and know it is ok. It is also important to my to have a book that I hand wrote. It is validation that my abilities are good enough. After all the God and Goddess love us weather we can spell or not. All that said I also wanted a book that I could share with others if we used it for a group ritual or event. The typed pages do make it much more legible then if it was hand written. I think it is like having the best of both words.  I also like this style of book because if I decided I want to change something I can always past something over it.

Bright Blessings

“Once, I can’t remember, I was long ago, someone strange. I was innocent and wise, and full of pain. Now that I’m a woman, everything has changed. Once, when I was searching, somewhere out of reach, far away, in a place I could not find, or heart obey. Now that I’m a woman, everything is strange.” – Amalthea from The Last Unicorn.
