Re: Japanese tragedy


I've been following the news, we watch most nights but that's about it. I feel for the poor people there. It seems people all over the world are struggling these days.

Not sure Hubby will ever come around, at least not knowingly. He's a 'tune' person, not a 'word' person, so he does not even realize that half the time when I turn on the music, he's listening to "Pagan" music! emoticon And in April...on the 9th, he and I are attending E7 (Enlightenment 7) at NMSU...he thinks it's an informational day about what Chris is doing...
but it's sooo much more!
Enlightenment 7 LINK
If you happen to look through the pictures on the right...that is 2007. I think it's picture number 6 or 7...that is the ladies from the Pagan/herbal shop I'm always talking about..Oh, here they are..easier than you going through all those...

SO.....who knows! Someday the Goddess may call him home too...then his eyes will be open and so will his heart... emoticon

Re: Japanese tragedy


I WANNA GOOOOOOO!!!!!! That looks like SO much fun!!!!! I did the slideshow of the pics from 2007...very neat looking stuff. LOVED the table with all the knives and swords!!! I'd end up spending too much there, and at another that looked like she had oils and such. I may go to the 'head shop' in Alabama and see if they have any GOOD Patchouli oil....that stuff is hard to find....I mean...good stuff. you can find Patchouli oil in most any shop that has that kind of stuff, but a lot of it goes rank too quickly.

Maybe this will be the catalyst that gets your DH on the right path for him!! emoticon
Y'all have FUN!!! And think of me while you're there!!!

I finally managed to get a candle engraved today for Japan, it's burning in a glass container in my den, on top of my Witch's cabinet. The door in there is open, so things can float on out the door and into the air....universe.

Re: Japanese tragedy


I have been trying to keep up with the basics of what is happening in Japan (and other places in the world as well). However I would much rather get the news at the end of the day rather than watching what is happening all day. I get depressed when I hear too much bad news.

That aside, I am sending good thoughts towards the people who are suffering in the world and trying to help out with donations whenever ai can.

Re: Japanese tragedy


I hear ya, Mel. Too much bad news is not a good thing for anyone....don't see how some people can watch news channels all day, or have that type stuff on radios at work all day long. That's one reason why we don't watch a lot of the news...seems it's nothing but bad stuff...very rarely hear of anything good happening.

And good on you for donating where you can and sending out good thoughts! Those things eventually come back to you. Too bad more people aren't willing to help like this! emoticon

Re: Japanese tragedy


Agreed on watching news all day - I suppose it is important to know what is happening but surely you can read it online or get an update at the end of the day. There is so much terrible stuff happening outside of Japan (Libya for example and other tragedies in other countries) and people just focus on one thing. Surely you need to understand and care about people in every bad situation.

As for donating - I have no issue helping out even with my small amount (I don't have that much to spare) and at work we are encouraged to help with our hands as well as just giving money which I will do when I can.

Mel, I think helping in any way you can is what makes a human being...into a remarkable human being... emoticon


SAIJEN I'm not sure if hubby will come around or not but not really worried about it. He still loves me! emoticon
And SAIJEN come on down....we'll go together!! emoticon
It does look like fun and on October 15th 2011 it's the 4th Annual Pagan Pride Day! It's in conjunction with the National Pagan Pride day. And I guess that is even more fun! Where the E7 is a lot of seminars and learning, the Pride day is just Pagans and they reenact ceremonies and rituals and have Rune and Tarot card readings and it's just a blast....can't wait for that one either! emoticon
They have a "Mission" statement that is pretty cool...

Here is the gallery for the prior Pagan Pride day celebrations....


Here is a picture of my Son, Chris....reading Tarot at last years get together...

Re: Japanese tragedy


I read something interesting today about Pagans wanting to band together to show that their community also supports people in times of need. I thought it was interesting and read a bit more and discovered that there is a fund raising campaign for Doctors Without Borders specifically for pagans. I'd already blown any discretionary spending on a non-profit art venture for my brother, but I managed to find a little more. Hopefully next month there will be a bit extra too!
