What I do.

I make soap, and today I made some soap that I have fallen in love with! I'm totally not trying to toot my own horn here, maybe it's just me, but I can't stop staring at it. I am a dork.

(Also my family owns a soap shop you can take a look at our blog here or take a peek at our Etsy shop here!

If you're looking for an amazing blog check out my mother in-laws blog at The Feathered Nest.

~The magic is true.

Who ever said that pigs couldn't fly
that it didn't rain cats and dogs down from the sky?

That witches weren't real and fairies were make believe
that Santa Claus didn't shimmy down the chimney?

Let it be said and let it be heard
that elephants have wings
and Shamans can transform into birds.

Don't let them take the mystery from you
don't let them tell you what "should" be true.

You make the rules, you light the lights
and if you really look you'll see magic in the night.

Now listen here friend and listen real close
I have seen those witches and I've come face to face with ghosts!

The mystery is real, the magic too
Look close for yourself, you'll find it to be true.

~Autumn winds bring wishes.

Autumn winds bring wishes on their coat tails
like things we wish to know
they bring things that we are unsure of
and things that make us grow.

How swift these winds from Canada blow
down here in our southern pines
bringing with them whispers of things to be
like unsolved mysteries lingering in old book spines.

The winds say "I was never good at anything."
"I never promised fast nor slow."
"I just bring changes and freshness."
"I bring what you don't know."

And so these autumn winds bring wishes on their coat tails
Some you may want but never know
Oh you autumn winds you bring new things to me
things I've never known.

~ Just a few,

Just a few of my photographs taken at my in-laws farm house here in Locust Grove. They are one of the only houses on the street and you can see nothing but fields for miles and miles. We pick pears from their pear trees and watch the trains go by multiple times a day because they are right next to the train tracks as well. It's their own personal slice of heaven on earth!

~ I am the witch from the wood.

I am the witch from the wood
come to stand out in the rain
cleanse my self from all the sins that have stuck to me like dirt and grime.

I am the woman from the wood
come to dance on this tabletop of rock
leave all my shackles at my feet and let the freedom pour in.

I am the mother from the wood.
come to nurture myself in the water
let my body be healed by the mother of all who is Earth.

I am the child from the wood.
come to stand in awe of all that is beautiful and amazing
to let myself breathe utter and complete freedom.
