i was in the backyard turning soil in preparation for Spring planting when something landed next to my shovel. i paused to look and immediately questioned, "who's throwing things"? When i moved in to get a closer look at the object the question "is someone trying to poison my dog" came to mind. i grabbed the meat and jumped up onto the planter box to look over into the neighbors yard and saw no one. The caws of birds overhead caught my attention. As i watched a flock of seagulls…Continue

Ellen heard muffled voices somewhere off in the darkness and froze in her tracks. The rutted path upon which she struggled to keep her footing had no doubt been recently trampled by soldiers on their way to and from the irregular picket-lines which the tattered remnants of the Georgia Militia had stretched thinly through the woods northwest of Savannah to…Continue

The rains had come aplenty with the early spring and everything seemed so much greener than March ought to be. I honestly didn’t think much of Helen’s plan for our outing today as I knew the lane leading back into the woods would be awash with muddy puddles. The odds of us getting our biskees paddled for dragging our hems in the watery ruts the tractor had left in the narrow dirt lane going back to the woods were pretty…
Blessed Yule to one and all! This week we celebrate the Winter Solstice, which occurs on Saturday, the 22nd this year. We'll call back to God of the Sun, Light and Hope and prepare ourselves for the coming New Year.

This week, as we welcome December under a Dark Moon, we dance with The Dark Spirits of December! December's Full Moon is called The Cold Moon, and for good reason. We wait in Darkness as we await the return of the Sun at Yule.
I'm going to read for you an abridged version of Inana's descent to the Under World. And from way up north, we'll talk about Louhi, the Fierce Finnish Goddess of the Arctic.
Then, finally - this time of Dark and…Continue

Native Americans sustained their civilizations for 10,000 years living in harmony with nature before the Europeans forced them from their lands and ended their culture. The white man has been on our soil for barely 300 years and has very nearly destroyed the natural environment, rapaciously taking from the land, giving nothing back. The endless woodlands are gone. The rivers and streams are muddied and polluted. The air increasingly brings asthma and other respiratory…Continue
This week, we talk about Aliens - Extraterestials.
I want to say at the start that I really don't believe in aliens. At least, I'm a doubter - a strong doubter.
Here's what I believe:
I have no doubt that in this vast universe there must be other Intelligent life forms. And, just because we, at our current stage of developement, can't reach them, doesn't mean that they can't reach us - by whatever means they may have.
But the evidence of alien contact is, to me,…Continue

Home and Hearth will be our theme this week. The days are getting ever shorter; the average daytime temperatures are getting ever lower. So, as we move ever deeper into the Season of Cold and Dark, we take the opportunity to look even more Inward.
This is the time of year that calls us back home. We're going to take a look at what The Home has meant to humans down the ages, and how people in different cultures have related to that ever so important part of the home - The…Continue

This week on The Spiral Dance we listen for the words of the Oracle. Alot of things are CALLED oracles; such as tarot or other methods of divination. But the ancient Greeks meant something very specific when they used the word, Oracle. For the Greeks an "oracle" was a human - usually a priestess - through whom a diety, such as Apollo, answered specific questions that have been put forth. Also, the Oracle was the sacred place where this would happen.
So we'll talk in more detail about…Continue

"We are the birds of fire,
We fly over the sky
We make a road for the spirit to pass over"
Those are words from our opening music from Dead Can Dance; the song, "Song of the Stars"
And, what is this road? Traditionally, there are many answers, but two of the most popular are Bridges and Rainbows. Both wonderful and perilous, bridges and rainbows bind two areas, while at the same time seperating the traveler apart from…Continue
