I’ve heard it too many times in my life: Illinois is boring. Illinois is flat. I could never live in Illinois.
What’s so flat about flowers that look like fireworks?
One of the things I most like about paganism (neo-paganism) is the respect for others. The lady next to me in ritual might be a humanist, while the man across the circle adores the Norse gods. I respect them all. We respect each other and we respect nature (or at least that’s the goal).
Happy dark moon, whatever your path. Mine is in beautiful Illinois.
