I've finished the OBOD Bardic course. I currently have no time to reflect on it, but I will make time soon, because I need to write my review of the course. I'm thinking prose poetry with some of my photographs of the attached at the right points. I may be writing this at five in the morning on a few days, because I have a lot to do in the next few weeks, including baking cookie gifts for the members of my grove, making some Solstice cards (painting little scenes), and doing some writing. And I've started the ADF Dedicant Path (and it is wonderful. I feel like I'm home). Plus, y'know, there's the PhD to do. But I got a podcast episode out! So that should tide some people over until after the holidays.

My ancestor work continues - I haven't managed to do 12 consecutive days, as migraines and similar have led to a few days off here and there, but I will have done 12 days of ancestor meditations in total by the end of it. It's been transformative. I'll be writing about it at my new Druidry blog soon, by request from my Druid priest and a few friends.*

All I've really done for ADF work so far is to find a small tealight lantern to represent fire, and to dedicate an old mini cauldron for the well. I'm still looking for a tree representation, although I've found something online that may work. A glass of branches from my garden is serving as the tree for now. The fire/tree/well imagery really works for me, which is great. I didn't expect it to.

*Yes, I have too many blogs now. But I'm thinking that, as my general spiritual writing will be happening a lot at the website that I'm going to be contributing to, and as I'm mostly set on a Druid path now, it's time to get more specific. I'll keep Lighting My Candle open, in case the 'general spiritual writing' mood strikes me.

When I was a member of ADF(back when Issac ran the thing)I found at one of those Import stores a candlestick shaped like a gnarled tree. 2 symbols, one space;>

Just remember to set used items for at least 24hrs on and sprinkled with Consecrated Sea Salt before Consecrating them for your use. Who knows where they've been and what sort had them before you!

I usually get stuff at least 24hrs to discharge whatever might have been picked up from previous owners. I'm lucky in that I'm Senstitve enough that anything that COULD be trouble, I'd Know beforehand and wouldn't buy;>. It's just someone else's crap I don't want on my altar.
It's a good Idea to consecrate anything that's going to be on your altar even if it's just to get it Dedicated in your Mind.
