Putting the Sun in Sun Wheel

Just got back from the fabulous SunWheel Pagan Arts Festival, outside Edmonton Alberta! They aren’t kidding about the sun, folks!

Uh, except for the thunderstorm and lightening and rain that hit just before we were due to go on stage on Saturday. But, they don’t call Pagans nature-lovers for nothing! We gathered inside the cookhouse for an evening of impromptu music and song-sharing.

And, then, on Sunday, with the sun in full attendance, they made a jam-packed musical day with all the different musical acts performing on the one day. What a great way to celebrate the Canada Day weekend!

So many thanks to express! To the organizers for a fabulous job, to the warm welcome by the Alberta pagans and to many new friends. To the other musicians – Sharon Knight and Winter, Vanessa Cardui, Heather Dale and Band, Sable Aradia, Chad McLeary, The Edmonton Pagan Choir and Dr. Brendan Myers – thanks for the songs! And, to the people who put on the Fire Walk, it was a truly amazing experience to walk on both broken glass and hot coals! And, as icing on the cake, I found the most perfect chalice and blade earrings made by Master Ark. How could I not scoop those up!

But, most of all, a HUGE thank you to all those who braved the heat and the sun to come out and listen to us and share the music. You made it special.

Joy and Sorrow

Here is the story….

On Sunday, I flew back to Windsor to be with Ma and my family as we were preparing for her passing. I didn’t want Sparrow’s only memory of my mom to her on her death bed, so she stayed home. After talking with my niece, Kaitlynn on Monday night, I decided to fly Sparrow out to meet Ma, as a surprise. I picked Sparrow up at the airport and brought her right to the hospital to meet Ma.

When Sparrow first left the room, I told my Ma my plan and she gave me her blessing. When Sparrow came back into the room, with my Ma watching, I proposed to my beloved with one of my Mom’s rings.

Ma passed away the next day.

More music and my tired arm – Mojo performing Harvest Dance

Here is the last of the videos I took of Mojo last Saturday night. Next time, I either need to bring the tripod to avoid the wobblies. Or, I suppose I could start working out my arm muscles. Nah ….
