In the pagan tradition, the wheel of the year represents a full turn of the seasons and the celebrations that mark each turn.  The year begins at the end of October, on Halloween night, called Samhain (pronounced Sow-wain, or Sow-win, but never Sam-Hain).  I began this project over Samhain as a way to cope with the upheaval of the oncoming election drama America was racing towards.  I wanted to create a space that celebrated leaving the negativity of this crazy year behind us, and I hope that each turn of this wheel, and celebrations we will share here together, will lighten your lives as much as they lighten mine.

Each turn of the wheel, I will write a new post along with a variety of social media-based ways for us to connect and celebrate.  I’ll have unique recipes we can explore together, Zoom meet-ups, digital bardic circles, and much more.  The next turn of the wheel is Yule, and I’ll have more information about what we’ll be hosting soon.  In the meantime, please stay safe, stay creative, and wear your mask!

Brightest blessings,

Handwritten, cursive signature says "pea flower tea" in lowercase letters. The flower is a small sketch of a bloom, instead of the word for "flower".
