  1. Another Boomer Blog reblogged this on Another Boomer Blog and commented: As always, an excellent blog by Avens. She is so incredibly knowledgeable about the historic underpinnings of Pagan or neo-Pagan celebrations.

    She is also a multi-talented young woman who is a model, a poet, a writer, a webmaster, a content provider of stories and reports, and a businesswoman who can make things happen almost without notice. She lives life fully, which means she also lives with few regrets.(Wouldn’t it be lovely if we could all live that way?”

    I suppose I should also note, she’s a “granddaughter of the heart” to me. I’ve known her since she was a wee lass of 9. Just as with my other grandchildren, I love her without reservation and admire her for the strong and wonderful person she is.
