Birth, Growth, Death and Again…

What a momentous year you’ve been in the life of this witchy writer woman, 2013:

– My baby brother smiled his last corporal smile in the frosty arms of your February
– I lost people… Some weren’t really mine, but still… It’s sad
– I regained friendships, which I’m sure I misplaced somewhere in a past life
– I fell for the magic of Thorn in Red, and I’m loving it to death…
AlmaMia keeps on evolving, often in ways I didn’t think she could
– My Piano Man and I decided that I should just write fiction for a while
– I realized that some things, people, situations… will never fit neatly They can’t be changed, fixed or bettered regardless of how hard my bullheaded witchy Aries heart screams, “Yes, they can!”
– I learned that this realization (see above) is quite all right: I can’t save the world
– Um… but I’m pretty sure that I will continue to try… I’m a witchy Aries, aren’t I?
– And I love that about myself; not the bullheadedness, but the Magaliness
– Oh, hot damn! Who am I kidding? I adore my bullheadedness—it makes me, Me.
– 13 is a delicious number. I’ve known it for a while, and I like that I still do in 2013.

I wish, I wish, I wish that your All Hallow’s Eve, Halloween, Dia de los Muertos, Samhain… your witchy New Year is full of blessings, love, smiles and positive yum ;-)

  5. Love your list!... You're keepin' it real for sure... and if u hadn't mentioned your 'bullheadedness' I am sure someone would of reminded u..... Making a list keeps us in check.. More should do it, then there'd be more right with the world.

    1. When we keep it real, reality doesn't get pissed off and kicks us in the teeth. Which might hurt quite a bit lol

  9. I am blessed beyond measure to have you in my life. Don't stop being Magaly... the world would be much more barren. Keep dancing and sing loudly!! Sending lots of love and Samhain Blessings to you, your Piano Man and the Little Princess.

    1. I think that if I stopped being me, I would probably die... literally. Hm, I think that this is one of those rare instances when "literally" doesn't read as annoying overuse of a word LOL

    1. And you are loved, right back, my Danni. Guess what? I was having an interesting conversation with your Gaia... I'm pretty sure she wants to come out before spring. Maybe she's hot ;-)

  11. I share your Aries bullheadedness, and wouldn't change mine for the world either. It's been a long year of love and loss. Such is the circle.
    Blessings to you and yours for a new year filled with even more beauty, love and laughter.

    1. Circle, indeed. I spent some time talking to my dad, today. I told him that I love him a lot and that I should probably visit more than I do, then I told him about your dad. I know I didn't know him, but it felt... right.

  12. I ate too many lollies, I should not have had a wizz fizz & 2 sherbets before going to bed... I just felt like letting you know. I can't think about anything else except there are more Wizz Fizz lolly-pops in the pantry and I rather eat them than cook dinner (true confession).

    Oh, & I should say - great post, and may awesomeness surround you & those you love AND your stunning bullhead Ms Wicked :)

  14. My friend, I wish many blessings to you!!! I had such a blessed day yesterday! I started if off going to my grandpa's grave with my mom and we also visited her best friend's grave. We both said a blessing and left apples for them. This is the first time my mom has came with me. It was very special and mom loved coming with me! I danced when I came home, it was like electricity was going through me! A very powerful day and night! Big Hugs and much love, always! xoxoxox

    1. I'm sooo glad your mome went with you. I bet it was kind of difficult to visit her best friend's grave... But I hope the apples made her smile. And that your dancing, at home, made her cackle ;-D

      Hugs and much love!
