Happy Beltane Everyone!

Still a bit tired from the A to Z challenge. Hope you enjoyed my month of alphabetical inspirational posts. I certainly enjoyed taking on a new challenge, as well as, all the new activity from various challenge bloggers and your thoughtful comments. I am grateful to all that joined this site and followed me on Google+. I hope you will stop in often.

Today is a wonderful holiday for many of us. May 1st is Beltane. I thought today it would be nice to have you revisit my post from last year that shares information about this holiday. It is called: Beltane Blessings.

Enjoy, many blessings, and Happy Beltane!


  1. Congratulations on finishing successfully! New follower here. I'm stopping by from the "A to Z" challenge, and I look forward to visiting again.


    1. Thanks Sylvia. I believe I joined your site too. I'll be over to see what you're doing.

  2. Happy Beltane!!!

    Of course I enjoyed your posts. :D

  3. Thanks Chrys, And stop back in. There's plenty more to come once I recharge.

  4. Happy Beltane to you! I just got done doing a big Beltane Festival this last weekend. Pageantry, dance, music, maypole, all as you described. I performed with a dance troupe doing a Beltane-adapted wonder tale. It was a hoot. What country are you in Stephanie? Jeri (a wordpress blogger with a different address - we've visited back and forth...storytellingmatters...) Cheers.

    1. Outstanding Jeri! It makes me so excited to hear about your weekend. I do enjoy your blog a lot and have joined it so that I get all your posts. Glad to have met you during the A to Z challenge. I'm in the US. How about you?

    2. Same here, all respects. Are you getting recovered yet from A to Z? I'm trying to recover and yet keep a bit of the momentum too. Balancing act number 422. :)

    3. I am not recovered but I will be posting again soon. You are right! A lot of momentum was developed through A to Z. It certainly is a balancing act.

A to Z Challenge: A Month of African Proverbs

I'm all in, once again.  This is my third year of participating in the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. This will be an intense spurt of reading and writing for me, as I'm also editing one book and writing another. I will do my best to stay in, and keep up!

For the month of April (2017) I will be blogging and visiting other blogs. This is a fun and meaningful practice that I've taken on to increase conversations with other readers and bloggers. I am always happy to see newcomers and, whether you comment or not, you are welcome.

A Month of African Proverbs
My 2017 theme is drawn from my soon-to-be released book "Earth Mama's Spiritual Guide to Weight Loss." I have a section of my book that contains African Proverbs. I will be spending time on each of those proverbs, exploring their meaning and inspiration regarding losing weight or otherwise transforming yourself.

Here is the definition of the word proverb: (from Latin: proverbium) is a simple and concrete saying…

Earth Mama's Spiritual Guide to Weight Loss Workshop

Happy to announce that my 6th book has been published by a small publishing house in England called Green Magic Publishing! You can find it here.

It is a very unique book, that has been a long time coming - 14 years actually! When I began writing it my adult children were still living at home and my youngest, who is about to graduate from high school, was little more than a toddler. Time flies but book writing seems to take forever!

The release of, Earth Mama's Spiritual Guide to Weight Loss feels like a birth. It has had growing pains, changes and the labor of bringing it into this world - a labor of love.

I'm offering a series of workshops at Life Force Arts Center in Chicago, to kick off the book and get you into its unique type of hands-on healing and transformation work. This first one is inspired by Welsh Goddess Cerrwiden. Following is a description and how you can sign up at Life Force Arts Center.

A to Z Update

My plate is full with demanding, though fun and meaningful, projects. I thought I could participate in the A to Z Blogger's Challenge but can not. This year I'm going to support fellow bloggers from the sidelines during April, visiting your blogs when I can.  I'm in the final stages of editing my soon-to-be-released book, writing my 7th book and preparing for my fall solo exhibition of my art, and that is a very full plate.

I hope to do a good job with what I'm working on and put my passion there. I'm stepping out of the challenge before it begins in order to write, edit and paint.

See you all on your blogs during the A to Z Challenge, and hope to participate again in 2018!
