Hour of the Wolf and other witchy Eurovision highlights

Eurovision was a travesty. I mean, Eurovision is pretty much always a travesty (except where Conchita Wurst is concerned, obvs.) This year though, the contest was exceptionally upsetting. So much witchy goddess wonderfulness. So few correctly-allocated points. BEHOLD Azerbaijan: Hour of the Wolf The weirdest, witchiest, most ugly-beautiful performance of all – performed by Elnur Huseynov and two AMAZING carazy-wolf-people – …

Weekend reading + party party

This has been a quietly busy week. Lots of planning, lots of *sitting with my feelings*, lots of letting ideas stew and marinade before beginning anything. You can read all about that here.

Little Wolfie – my Page of Pentacles

This tiny gorgeous furry dude is Wolfie. My amazing little adventurer, my badass mousecatcher, my diry stopout. He is two years old and a dear, dear friend. I love him with all of my heart. Right now, he’s fighting for his life at the vets in Halifax – he’s been poisoned by *something* he ate …

Bull by horns – The Fool

The Fool tarot card - Shadowscapes Tarot Stephanie Piu-Mun Law

What’s the one thing you’ve always wanted to do, but are afraid to try? Everyone’s got one – maybe more than one. Even the most confident people have something tucked away which they can’t bring themselves to start. Could be as simple as joining a singing group, could be as big as a total change …
