To the Gods of Earth, Sea, and Sky -
Gods of the rivers, the forest, the moon and stars,
Gods of the Underworld and Gods Above,
By all of your names, all of your epithets,
However you wish to be called.

I have prayed to you,
Tossed barley before you,
Laid flowers on your altars,
Offered sweet wine,
Burned frankincense,
Honored you before others,
And always kept you in my thoughts.
Please hear my prayer.

Be gentle to me, oh my Gods!
I'm not one of those who relishes being buffeted about;
I don't pride myself on the pain I can endure.

Be patient with me, oh my Gods!
I'll never know your histories by heart,
But with your help, my heart will know you.

And dearest Gods, walk with me,
as I walk with Wiccans,
as I walk with Christians,
as I walk with atheists,
as I walk with agnostics,
as I walk with UUs,
as I walk with you always.

So be it.

Helped herd children during an Ostara ritual.

I pray:

To Artemis, who protects the little children. If I spend enough time with them, will I eventually start to understand what on earth they're saying?

Took a long, hot, cleansing shower. Also, plunged the toilet.

Today I:

Had reached the point of utter desperation over my finances, when my parents unexpectedly stepped up to help.

I pray:

To Hermes, who invented the lyre and stole a herd of cattle before he was three days old. Thank you many times over for the good fortune of having such a family, but I ask you also to help me keep my independence.
