Oh! How Pagan I feel today! All we did, Nina and I, all day long was lying and hanging around on the couch, with my new vest and her sheepskin coat, with coffee, mead and Damh the Bard. We also went outside for a walk through the forest in search of her Grandpa Birch for a while, after which we would slip back onto the couch. We also spent at least an hour sitting back in chairs, with our feet upon the window-sill, staring through the window at the red tree against the blue sky, swaying in the wind.
This weekend, Tessa and I went to see Nina. Friday night time just flew passed as we were doing puzzles, drinking coffee and mead, talking and laughing. In the dead of night we went to a small bit of forest and hang back in a deserted playground, staring at the stars in complete silence for what seems like hours.
On saturday we went into Utrecht, first to a book/new-age store, then to the Aboriginal Art museum, where we were mesmerized by the paintings and the weird (and ancient) maps hanging on the walls.
After that, we shortly visited the monastery garden, took a cold beer and then set out to the Irish Pub, where we spent the rest of the evening in complete joy.
And sunday, today, well.. you just read!
All we did was hanging on the couch with coffee, mead and Damh the Bard. And I've never felt so Pagan in my life.. It was like, totally natural, casual and going without saying.. Even while we were just being lazy, doing absolutely nothing, we were Pagans. How I love being a Pagan, how I love feeling alive! How I love seeing the beauty in the smallest things, like the waving of a leaf, the flight of a bird, the growth of a flower or the tune of a flute!
How I love sharing my ways, my days with my friends.
In this world of doubt, there's one thing I absolutely know for sure: when I die, I will do so packed, up to my crown, with such good memories!
And by the way, go listen to Damh the Bard!
