Well here we are again. I'm looking at this blog and thinking "I should start blogging and working on the Pre-Clergy essays again!" and I get super excited for about a week and then promptly forget that it exists until around a year later. At which time, I feel guilty that it's been neglected for so long and post another "I'm back!" message and I start the process all over again....
Well, I make no promises, but I am going to extend a lot more effort on keeping this blog alive, if for no other reason than to keep a personal record of my journey as a Druid. I even paid for my own domain finally! (That means I have to do the thing, right?...)
So here we are and oh, where to begin?
A quick rundown, I am still currently the Chief Druid and Scribe of Columbia Grove, ADF and the 2020 term ends in December. I am running again in 2021 so we will see how that election plays out.
Covid-19 has really hit our Grove hard and we have had to learn new ways to connect with each other and our local communities. Rituals, social meet-ups, special interest groups and Grove meetings have moved to virtual platforms. It's been a challenge but it has caused many of us (myself included) to reassess what ADF Druidry means to us (and what it doesn't) and how we can learn from this unfortunate experience. (but that is a whole separate post for a different day.)
I have been reading a lot and have great plans for book reviews and future blog posts. (I'm actually keeping topics notebook!)
So here is to a new start! Again.
