EOYR= End of Year Rant I don’t get bogged don with resolutions so this year I thought I’d speak freely on a few things that I’ve seen going on this last year! Friendships seem to be on the radar for those wanting to cut others out of their lives. Friendship is defined as: the emotions or conduct of friends; the state of being friends. AND a friend is defined as: a person whom one knows and with whom one has a bond of mutual affection, typically exclusive of sexual or family relations. So, here’s the thing… not all friends can do for you the way you did for them AND that is okay. A friend is not about doing equal amounts for each other…if that were the case, I’d have none. I have friends who I could never equate myself too and even more who could never equate themselves to me. BUT that is just it…nowhere in that definition did
Bloggers don’t get the attention they deserve, so I thought I’d interview some here and there. Today’s interview is with

In case you missed the new release, Unexpected Allies came out not too long ago. For nineteen-year-old Elizabeth, magic was something that never existed until about a year ago. One dream had changed her life forever. A dream that revealed a world she was meant to live in but had been hidden from her since a toddler. Now her life is flooded with magic, family drama, and inner circle politics of how the Witch’s Council and her coven should run and who should run it she must look to the past to guide the future. Elizabeth has been through it all with her recently found powers and the end of the struggle draws near, she hopes. A strange man invades her dreams declaring himself an ally but is unable to reveal himself fully. He knows things about Elizabeth that she can’t explain and is determined to discover his identity and bring him out of the dreams into reality. Then a
Mabon 2019 will begin on Saturday, September 21 and ends on Sunday, September 29. How will you celebrate? “Mabon is a pagan harvest festival which is celebrated on the Autumnal Equinox each year – around September 21st through September 24th. Also known as Harvest Home, this holiday marks the middle of the harvest cycle – when both the days and nights are of equal length. It is a time to reap what you sow, a time to give thanks to Mother Earth for the bounty she provides and a time to rest after bringing in the crops. It is also the second holiday on the Wheel of the Year, which includes other harvest festivals such as Lammas and Samhain.” (Holiday Calendar) For me, I’ve decorated around the house and will eat a nice meal by myself and give my personal thanks to Mother Earth for her bounty.
I see it way too often. Parents not letting their boys play with dolls or their girls play football for the fear of them “turning” gay. I shake my head in annoyance with them. A doll, kitchen set, doctor set, football, or anything else will not influence the sexuality of a child. If that is your fear then I think you have your priorities all out of sorts. I’d be more concerned that my child would grow up to be a drug dealer, a murderer, a rapists, or a person who commits mass shootings. These are the things you should focus on. The sexuality of a child is NOT influenced by the things they play with. I grew up running the woods. Digging in the dirt. Playing football. Wearing boys clothes. I am very much a straight woman. I know men who grew up playing with dolls and cooking sets…they are very much straight. But I’ve committed crimes and so
