A Day to Reflect

A Day to Reflect July 7, 2012

I won’t be actively blogging today, as I’m taking a personal day for my birthday. I’ve often thought that birthdays, at least once you bypass the “piles of toys” stage of life, are a perfect time to take stock, reflect on the year past, look toward the year to come, and spend time with dear friends. So that’s what I’ll be doing.

Living in Eugene, Oregon, one of my favorite spots to reflect is from the top of Spencer Butte, a place I often hike to (weather permitting). Here’s a photo I took a couple months ago, of the view from the summit.

I’d like to take this moment to thank all of you, for reading, supporting my efforts here, and participating in making today’s Pagan media the dynamic, enriching, experience it often is. Doing The Wild Hunt has been a true privilege, one I hope to continue for many years to come. I bow to all of you.

If you are looking for news, or a good Sunday read, let me recommend a few stopping points:

Again, thanks for reading, I’ll be back on Monday.

    Only ever worked one birthday in my whole life,

    when I thought I’d outgrown taking the day off.

    Worst day of my life, the day was soooo long,
    and I dragged my shoes like a petulant two year old.
    (And I manage the store 🙂  ) 

    Haven’t worked my birthday now in over 25 years.

    The family decided that we’d all take each others birthday
    as a personal leave day, and in Irish style,
    we start the celebrations the night before.

    Great way to stay in touch, and respect family.

    Happy Birthday. Every day, your news takes me into the heart of our community, when I must stay home. From here, I am at every line of resistance. With the stories, I could be at every circle. With every tragedy, I hear the cries and see our community be there for each other. I even get to laugh and gasp at so many follies of the Fundies and villains. Thank you, Jason. I sincerely hope to sit and have a drink with you at some point in this incarnation. Thou art Goddess. Thou art God.

  • Have a wonderful, peaceful day, Jason. You deserve it.
