I thank the Lord and Lady of Witchcraft for Their guidance and wisdom. I thank Them for helping me to find a measure of my own wisdom and strength. I thank them for the breath I breathe and the life I lead with my Partner and for every moment of every day.
I give thanks to Hecate, Queen of Phantoms and Lady of the Earth and Sky and Sea, for Her guidance.
I thank Dionysus for each and every moment of Inspiration and Intoxication and For the Sacred Sexuality that has touched my life in so many ways.
Thanks be to Aphrodite for bringing my Beloved into my life, and for the friends that have been and are a part of my life. I thank Her for my family of blood and that of my choosing.
I thank all the Gods and Goddesses for a swiftly blossoming slow-motion snowflake on the windshield of my car. Thanks that the windshield held, thanks that in that moment I knew fear and in its aftermath I know to look at what has scared me, to face my fear and to scry into it and move past it into Strength and Beauty and the rest…
