Why is this a blogue?

  • Why is this a blogue, not a blog? It’s just an old-fashioned touch that harkens back to less-hurried (and harried) times, when a letter took a while to get delivered, and a reply took a while longer. When books were savored for their precious rarity. When news came in slowly for the most part and could be thoughtfully considered. A rapid-fire flow of constant info-junk tends to make me twitchy. When you visit my blogue, I invite you to take a nice deep breath, absorb things a little at a time, wander in a serendipitous fashion, and generally remember that even in the ultra-speedy world of the Internet, you control the pace of your life.

Anne Markell

Have you been studying "The Ode Less Traveled?" I was reading a chapter of that yesterday and felt like penning some winter songs of my own!


Beautiful memories. And now Helen's song is haunting me, too . . . thank you and Blessed Solstice!


Oops, Anne, I added your name, and deleted your other comment, but forgot to add your info or move the comment to the right post! Clearly, caffeine is needed here too. :) To answer your question, that Solstice Goddesses carol in the previous post was written a million years ago, back when I was editor of SageWoman. It has made its way into some online collections of pagan carols, sometimes with my name, sometimes not. It's actually kind of cool to be part of the anonymous oral tradition!

Tarot Card of the Week

  • Moon

    When the planet turns its face toward the dark, our nocturnal nature draws us out into the realm of Moon. This is a dominion of dreams that we explore with our senses fully awake. The subconscious spills into consciousness, allowing us to see what is not revealed by sight alone. Strange sounds come to our ears, intoxicating perfumes reach our noses, things appear that only emerge in darkness. We creep softly, following our moonshadows over the colorless world.
    This card is Moon, from my Mystical Cats Tarot, illustrated by Mickie Mueller. Click the image for a larger version.
