December Quotes

“This is what I have heard
at last the wind in December
lashing the old trees with rain
unseen rain racing along the tiles
under the moon
wind rising and falling
wind with many clouds
trees in the night wind.”

W. S. Merwin

Pagan Playlist: A witch’s playlist



“Our inability to see beauty doesn’t suggest in the slightest that beauty is not there. Rather, it suggests that we are not looking carefully enough or with broad enough perspective to see the beauty.”
— Rabbi Harold Kushner

Who are you? You can gaze at your reflection in a mirror but you’re not likely to see your true likeness. You are beautiful, unique, perfect. Do you see that?

The world needs you to see how whole and complete you are — now. Can you begin to own your divinity? The world needs you to know who you really are so you can be the mirror for others.

“The sun shines not on us but in us. The rivers flow not past, but through us, thrilling, tingling, vibrating every fiber and cell of the substance of our bodies, making them glide and sing.”
— John Muir


A Note from the Universe

However do you do it? You know, talk and make such sense? Walk and not fall down? Ask and then know the answer? Aim and then deliver? Show up on time? Always get by? Make just enough?You don’t know how, do you?

Haven’t got a clue.

You don’t know how, do you?

And that’s exactly how.

You leave the “hows” to Me, as you simply focus upon and move towards your desired end results.

You got this,

The Universe


Today’s Recipe: Mom’s Potato Latkes

Latkes (potato pancakes) are a must-have at Hanukkah, but are really wonderful any time of the year! This is my mother’s recipe, which is honestly the best potato latke I’ve had. I usually end up making a second batch because they disappear so quickly. I’ve tried other recipes and always return to this one. Lovely topped with sour cream or applesauce.

Nonetheless, patience will get you through the day with fewer, if any, mishaps.
