I am not sure why, exactly, the Gregorian New Year has been the Turning Point in my year this year, but that’s what it has been.
My work schedule allowed me to be home to toast in the New Year with The Fabulous Jonathan and share a New Years Kiss with him. He is working through a number of health problems and finally beginning to take steps to deal with them productively, I have been in contact with many of my family and friends vie phone and Facebook and reweaving strands of connection with many people I care about or who have touched my life for the better.
TFJ and I are striving to eat healthier this year for our health, and New Years Day we had a much needed heart to heart about the ups and downs of the last couple of years. We have faced a lot of financial challenges, and the collision of our pasts as we stumble into, over, and around each others emotional baggage. Yet we love one another and are in love with one another and we keep finding ways to talk.
That’s the key, isn’t it, to just keep talking and to remember that you love this person even when they are driving you mad?
On the spiritual front, I have already made some offerings of Oil and Honey Wine and Herbal Tea to the Household Spirits. This is the week I will redress and dust off the Altar and begin reweaving my connections to the Gods and Ancestors…
They are there, and I take heart in my idea that They know that sometimes other connections and other parts of our Mortal lives take us away from our times with Them…
Now I need to go make some breakfast salad for TFJ and myself,
Peace, and a Blessed New Years,
