The highest temp has been 100 and the higest heat index temp here was 113.

I never learned how to swim.

Pagan thoughts.....Let me get back to you on that. I think this summer has fried my brains.

Highest summer temp so far? Low mid 90s (that's HOT in our climate!)

Have you been swimming? No. No interest.

Any pagan thought you may like to share? Remember to do daily Spirit practices when dealing with major health issues. To send positive energy & visualizations to the body vs fear & anxiety energy. :)


Blessings,

Gypsy

Hi Elizabeth and welcome! Not sure I have seen you post here (at least not in a while) so welcome back if you are a regular, and tell us about yourself if you are newbie.
Peace,

Name? Dee

Location? near Vancouver, BC, Canada

Highest summer temp so far? 77 (25 C) And that's a little cooler than normal August here.

Have you been swimming? Yes. Many, many times already :) Lakes and pools. The boys absolutely love the pool.

Any pagan thought you may like to share? I was having a health scare yesterday so Gypsy woman's thought was timely and pertinent advice. Stay positive :)

Hi, Elizabeth, and welcome to the board! We're always glad to see new members here. Like Caly said, we're a pretty eclectic group here with a lot of different paths represented. We're all on different steps of that path. We have some who have recently found their way, some who have been Pagan for several years and others, like me, who have been Pagan for decades. So we can all contribute and learn new things from each other.

I was a Buddhist for a long time and still incorporate Buddhism in my spirituality. I'm a beader and in the process of creating my own mala.

I've read the Tarot for many years and have collected about 35 decks. I love the artwork of many of them.

I also understand the need to incorporate your spiritual path with your everyday life. I'm a Druid and one of the things that we do is to care for the Earth Mother and Her children. I do that through taking care of animals. I'm a veterinary assistant in an emergency veterinary clinic and besides the pets that we see, we also take in wildlife patients. I've always known that my mission in life was to take care of animals. There is talk at work of a possible promotion for me so that I can get more hours at the clinic. If not, then I plan on doing volunteer work at one of the local animal shelters. I hate the fact that many of our patients can't be saved, but I'm there to help them on their way to the Otherworld. And animals are constantly proving to me how resilient they can be. Yesterday we had a cat that was on death's doorstep, yet with our care we brought her back. I love being able to make a difference.

I hope that you'll find a home here!

Any pagan thought you may like to share? It's not specifically Pagan though I suppose it could be applied...."We do not inherit the world from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children"
