My Photo
Location: Katoomba, NSW, Australia

here I am in a little cottage that evokes the energies of my ancestral lands - a cottage on the moors of Cornwall, or on the cliff tops of Ireland or Scotland. It has a hearth. I am a hedge witch {of sorts}. I wear upcycled clothes, patchouli oil and Redback boots. I am a gypsy; an eccentric and a mystic [I often live with a foot in two worlds]. I serve my guests, tea from an old silver teapot. I love Vervain, yarrow, chamomile & mint. Star watcher and Moon gazer. story cloth weaver. keeper of family dreams and wishes. good friend and creator of life. herbal tea drinker and potion maker.

Plan ahead and dream of all the beautiful things that life has to offer

I am not the good Catholic that I thought I was. I missed Candelmas day today. Read about it on Corey's blog - how on earth did I miss this day? I have never heard of it - is that bad? I would have had candles burning everywhere - oh! wait, probably not as today was over 40 degrees C - that is hot!
However Corey says to let your light shine which reminds me of a song we sang at Sunday school when I was little:
This little light of mine
I'm going to let it shine
Oh, this little light of mine
I'm going to let it shine

This little light of mine
I'm going to let it shine
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine

I am sure you all know it - but it just popped into my head when I read Corey's post.

I have never heard of candelmas until you mentioned it. Oh no I went to twelve years of Catholic school...that is why I enjoy your blog so much.

Love that song too!

Take care, Connie

Robyn, I was Catholic born and bred and I never heard of Candlemas Day either. It must be an English tradition do you think??
