“Love proves itself by deeds, so how am I to show my love?  Great deeds are forbidden me.  The only way I can prove my love is by scattering flowers, and these flowers are every little sacrifice, every glance and word, and the doing of the least actions for love.”

—   St. Therese of the Little Flower

Bewitched, bothered, and bewildered.

Was that a dream of you, my love?
Sometimes when sleep eludes me, I toss and turn with thoughts of you and shiver the whole night through.  Trace the insides of my thighs with stars as you kiss me goodnight.  Feel my I love yous in your bones.  That's the kind of love I crave; the spell where I can feel you aching for me.  I'm good at making you dream.

"I saw a lantern faraway and moving out of the piney woods. The lantern came down a road and then crossed over bridges and went through watermelon patches and stopped sometimes by the road, first this road and then that road.

I knew who the lantern belonged to. It was in the hand of a girl. I had seen her many times before walking at night, over the years.

But I had never seen the girl up close and I didn’t know who she was. I knew she was sort of like me. Sometimes she had trouble sleeping at night.

It always comforted me when I saw her out there. I had never tried to find out who she was by going after her or even telling anyone about seeing her at night.

She was in a strange way mine and it comforted me to see her. I thought she was very pretty, but I didn’t know what color hair she had."

--Richard Brautigan, The Girl with the Lantern

... Not as perfect as you, my love.

all experiences, regardless of their origin, are opportunities for growth.  Everything that we face in this life is for the blossoming and betterment of our Self.

Blood Supermoon/Lunar Eclipse in Aries during the evening of September 27 to the early morning of September 28 is the final of the 'rare' tetrad configuration to glimpse the heavens over the course of the 21st century.

Dark passions will be stirring as the shadow of the earth moves across the face of the moon, eclipsing the light and turning the moon a deep shade of crimson.  Full moons are typically a beneficial time for reflection, causing us to become aware of our hidden subconscious 'shadow' selves.  During a lunar eclipse, these feelings and beliefs will exorcise themselves unconsciously...  We will undoubtedly experience an influx of darker stirrings and precognitions, both in our waking and dream life.  

Instead of suppressing the mysterious aspects of our inner selves, embrace them with an open and fearless heart...  It is time to abandon all fears as we integrate our quiet inner transformations with those of our current realities.

Les Diaconesses du saint-office by Felix Labisse, 1973

' be hole, be dust, be dream, be wind
be night, be dark, be wish, be mind
now slip, now slide, now move unseen
above, beneath, betwixt, between '

- Neil Gaimen, The Graveyard Book

''A sorceress is a woman who emerges from deep within herself. She is a woman who has honestly explored her light and learned to celebrate her darkness.  She is a woman who is able to fall in love with the miraculous possibilities of her power.''

I've learned that moving forward victoriously means joining your past with the future that lies in front of you.
