    What a lovely reminder to appreciate what we are blessed with, the magic of the land and the deep pleasures of sleeping, me being a sincere believer in long afternoon naps ! I’ve loved your reflective joy in the beauty of the isle.

    Dear Maria,

    I was so happy to “meet” you at Philip’s blog and your’s is wonderful as well. Your writing is joy in my ears and eyes and soul – so beautiful and ringing true. I have something for you in celebration of Spring and our love of Goddess that I would like to send to you off-line in an email. Let me know if you’d like to receive it, and if so, where I can send it to you. Love, Gabriella

    Greetings Maria Dear – Wonderful Word Weaver!

    I have been trying to email you but have received a “failure notice” to your account. This had happened once before as well. Have you noticed any problems with in-coming mail?

    I sent the same mail again today – maybe it made its way throught to you this time. I hope so! If you don’t see a message from me in your inbox today, could you please let me know? Perhaps you have an alternate address to which I could send it?

    With much love and many blessings from a sunny Sunday in the Black Forest – Abnoba Land –

    Hi Maria, I’m a new follower of your blog. As a fellow writer I agree with Philip whole-heartedly. I loved what I read so far, specifically the bit about Kali and about gratitude. Very true. Thank you.

    Hello fellow walker of the old paths,

    I was hoping you might be so kind as to share a link to a fundraiser my Grove is hosting with your readers, friends, members, anyone and everyone.

    We are raising funds through fundraise.com to purchase a very special woodland area that is in danger of falling victim to “development.” We hope to be able to raise enough funds to purchase the property and allow for the creation therein of a Nemeton open to any and all who would come in peace.

    This is the shortlink


    Thank you so very much for your consideration and help,
    Mhórdhúshlán Fhear Leighis aka Thomas Carter
    Head Druid

      Hi Thomas,

      Of course but the link doesn’t appear to work, I’m afraid. Do you have another? Best of luck with the fund raising!

        It didn’t work for me either – and apparently no ‘update’. A ‘spoofmail’ perhaps? (One has to be so careful these days.)

  24. October 23, 2013 at 6:29 pm

    I enjoy your writings, please share more. Thank You

    Hi Maria, I so love your writing, it can feel like the pouring of enervating water – any more planned?

    February 6, 2014 at 6:15 pm

    Hi Kate! Lovely to hear from you! Thank you so much for your kind words. Sadly, my blog has been a little neglected of late. Since I saw you at the Retreat, life has brought many major life changes and I don’t seem to have got back into a regular routine with writing. I hope to though and have also been working on a book idea.

    Hope all is well with you!
    Much love, M xxx

    Maria, I came to your blog through one of Philip’s links. I can’t tell you how your voice reaches and speaks to my heart through your words of gratitude, honor and wisdom. Thank you for sharing your voice with me at a time when I truly needed a kind word in my own life.

    Are you still blogging, Maria? Seems like no one’s posted since April – and you’ve written nothing since October!
    I loved that image of ‘Persophone Rising’ you posted in February and would like to obtain a print of this. Can you help about the source?

    • luckyloom1 said,

      Hi Carl,

      So sorry – my blog has been a bit neglected, been having some health problems but hoping to be writing more in the New Year. The artist is Patrica Ariel: http://art.patricia-ariel.com/. Love her paintings – just gorgeous!

    […] “Beltane is so much about the urge to connect, to blend and merge; to feel a part of something extraordinary; to at once lose one’s sense of self in that merging but also to paradoxically feel more absolutely and truly oneself because of it. In the desire to penetrate life’s mysteries, we need also to open ourselves to them, surrendering to the power of love that it may have the opportunity to transform us. Great things are born in us at such moments of union; this place of merging is where the tap root of our creativity feeds, without it we feel dry and disconnected. If that magical, alchemical moment of connection and merging were a colour, I suspect it might be perceived as many beautiful, vibrant shades but its foundation, I feel sure, would be the green of spring: ecstatically joyful – the irrepressible life and desire that leads us to love.” — Maria Ede-Weaving […]

      Hi Marcia, so sorry it has taken so long to reply – haven’t been very active here. Do take a look at the OBOD website: http://www.druidry.org/. You will find lots of info about Druid practice and belief. OBOD also have course and there are Groves and groups too. You might want to have a look here: http://www.earthstars.co.uk/ – they are an OBOD Grove and would be happy to chat with you. If you have any questions do feel free to ask me.

      All good wishes!

    I loved your latest blog Maria, which aligns so much with my own ideas about the ‘plurality’ of deity worship as well as my affinity to the Ancient Egyptian tradition, and can certainly empathize with your concept of the attributes of Sekhmet/Bast depending on my own needs at a particular time and have images of both Goddesses on my altar.
    Have you been following the excellent Radio 4 Series ‘Living with the Gods’ by Neil Macgregor (9.45/8.45)? Well worth a listen, and the whole 30 episodes are available as a podcast. It’s been made in conjunction with the British Museum, with Neil using various artifacts to illustrate each episode. A book of the series is also in progress. (I’ve pre-ordered it on Amazon!)

    All Blessings,

    Carl xx

    Hi Maria, I’m only now finding you here and it looks like nothing new has been written since 2018. I read some words of yours on the OBOD website regarding Imbolc and I’m only waking up now, in my 70s, to what has been growing under the surface for so many years! Too long! Too long! 👨‍🦯🙋‍♂️

      Hi Ashley, So sorry for the delay in reply – yes, my blog has been a little dormant. Hopefully, it will re-emerge over the coming months. Thanks so much for the follow! x
