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.

These are fabulous! So many beauties to pick from. I'm contemplating what an Old Mermaid rosary would look like. I'll have to put these in an Old Mermaid story some day. It's funny, just a few weeks ago I was thinking that we needed a goddess kind of rosary and here they are!


Kim, I've made many many mermaid rosaries, though I don't think there has been an Old Mermaid specifically! More mermaids will be coming in the new year, and I will definitely be on the lookout for Old Mermaid art to use in them!


I just want to say how much I love my rosary -- The gentle deity of dreams. I am trying to develop a mantra with each bead. Do you have any suggestions? There are nine beads between each sequence of beads and I thought about saying a Goddess name for each. What do you think? Is this what others do? Sometimes I get so lost. Rhondda

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.
