I like this poem by the FOI co-founder

The Goddess Dana

by Olivia Robertson

My waving hair is golden corn,
My robe the ever-changing sky;
The lady-bird my finger bears,
My eyes shine forth in lake and sea.

From the depths of earth my inner sun
Glows through the heart of all existences,
Atoms and stars; creatures that grow and move,
Know Me as Mother and as Consciousness.

My breath inspires every breath;
The healing rays are mine.
Look upwards, round about and down,
For I am everywhere.

Feature attractions

There is a new Littlest Druid story up on my children’s blog. That story did not go where I expected. Still thinking about that.

There is also a children’s item on how a kid can cast a circle and if you scroll back, one on how to keep the nightmares at bay and not running around your bed.
