Dear Cernunnos, The sky is clouding over. It makes everything feel so finite, so immobile. For an instant it is paralyzing – I want to stare at the sky and see something thousands of years old to remind myself that things are not always what they seem, but instead I am staring at the sky… Continue reading Month of Written Devotion – Dear Cernunnos
We are not the same as we were, Cernunnos, so I suppose I could say that what we were has ended. But I don’t believe that.
