Do you have any house spirits? Brownies? Lares? Cofgodas? Do you find your familiar speaking with something under the stove or in a corner?
Take today to rest. We are overworked, stressed, and exhausted! Take some time for yourself. Read, take a long hot bath, curl with a hot cup of tea and your favorite Star Trek episode…
I am off to play Heros of Might and Magic III!
Today is both about life and death.
Celebrate! Have a feast! Spend some intimate time with someone you love! Leave a feast out for any friendly neighborhood squirrels, birds, or bunnies.
Take a winter nap and think about how similar or different sleep and death are. Have you ever had a near death experience?
When moving, we rarely feel at home as soon as we cross the threshold. How do you build a home in a new place?
When moving, my personal library is one of the first things unpacked, even before the bookcases are. They are in many cases my extended family and personal friends. And then before my books get properly sorted, I unpack and set up my altar.
Although to be honest, my home is based less on objects, than they are they people. I cannot think of home being anywhere my husband is not. We’ve only been married three months, but he’s such a huge part of my life.
What makes a home for you?
PS. Although, I’d give my left leg to have that log cabin pictured above. 😀
Hestia (meaning hearth or fireside) is a Greek virgin goddess of the hearth, architecture, and the right ordering of domesticity, the family, and the state. She is the daughter of Cronus and Rhea. Her Roman equivalent is Vesta.
