a journey of self discovery. You just never know what we might see. Is that a fairy ring under that rowan tree? Look! - a hedgewitch, I wonder what she is brewing in her cauldron today. Oh, and look at that poor menopausal soul, she needs our love & understanding. We may take a stop at the creativity school or a wander through the garden. And maybe, we will take the time machine back to the past! But wherever we go, we will always take time to stop for tea.

My Photo
Location: Katoomba, NSW, Australia

here I am in a little cottage that evokes the energies of my ancestral lands - a cottage on the moors of Cornwall, or on the cliff tops of Ireland or Scotland. It has a hearth. I am a hedge witch {of sorts}. I wear upcycled clothes, patchouli oil and Redback boots. I am a gypsy; an eccentric and a mystic [I often live with a foot in two worlds]. I serve my guests, tea from an old silver teapot. I love Vervain, yarrow, chamomile & mint. Star watcher and Moon gazer. story cloth weaver. keeper of family dreams and wishes. good friend and creator of life. herbal tea drinker and potion maker.

off on a new adventure!

I have started a new blog - goodness gracious miss*R!
~ going into 2007 I need to do what is right for me and after pondering the last few weeks, it means starting a new blog - with warts and all.
at first I was going to walk away from blogging altogether, but I love it. I love how I can be creative with the tap of a finger, how I can play with photos, words and other stuff.
then ~
I was going to keep my new blog private as
there are a few people out there who are reading my blog and taking it unto themselves to tell me what they think my problem is. They don't comment until one day a vein bursts in their head and they email me with vicious unkind words
but instead, I say this:
! ! if I receive one email pointing out my personality faults or saying I am on the road directly to hell - then I will out whoever sends the email - meaning their name will be in print on my new blog along with the nasty words that they felt they had to attack me with - or the personality faults that they thought I might need to know.
(just a few weeks ago, someone pointed out that I had low self esteem - thankyou for that)
I don't mind friends emailing me with advice or wisdom, I welcome it actually
- it helps me sometimes, putting a different perspective on my thoughts - sometimes your advice hits home - kind of like free advice or counselling. It is those who are silent that bother me, those who read, who voyeur, who suck my energy
and when they think I am down, they attack with words - like vipers.

I guess this sounds like I am some kind of prima donna blogger & I guess I will lose readers along the way- but I need to blog for ME until I develop that tough shell that my Nan told me that I needed way back when I was a little girl

Just remember that the blog is there primarily for you to put your thoughts and words down in print. For those of us like me, who enjoy reading about you and your life, this is wonderful but for the rest.... just don't read!!!!
I would miss you so much, and did while you were away, so please keep blogging and I hope that 2007 is your best year yet!!!

I support you 100% on the outing business. They have been warned. If they are strong enough in their own beliefs that they think they can lecture and hector you, then they are strong enough to own their words publicly. Good for you Robyn and now ON to your new blog.

Wow robyn.....I can't believe people actually do that kind of stuff..what is going on in people's lives that they have to spend time harassing another person in their blog?? I'm sorry you go thru all that.....I'd say just ignore and delete....but I know sometimes it's hard not to take it personal and be hurt by it...

I have empathy with you, Robyn.

I once had someone disagree with me quite strenuously with my post on attending a peace march (I'm for them)--they said some really mean things on my comments and then went to their blog and made a post about how...well, let's just say they really didn't care for me.

It felt very hurtful because I'd always thought blogs were a place you could speak fairly openly on your opinions or beliefs. For a long while after, I kept my posts to safer subjects, and I wonder even now if I write with the same freedom I did before.

Best of luck on your new blog! (And don't worry, karma will get the petty people eventually.)

Wow Robyn! I haven`t been to your blog in awhile because the last time I tried it was locked out. But yours was one of the very first I discovered and I liked it!! Silly people should mind their own business. I`ve always enjoyed reading about fairies and all other unnusual things and just because people have different beliefs does not make them any different from anyone else. You go girl. I`m off to see and hopefully get into your new blog.

Hi Robyn,
I can't seem to comment on your new blog; no comments posts.

Anyways try not to feel so blue. I too wonder how some can be so happy everyday of their lives and I look at my blog and I’m so different then the rest, but that’s okay. I started this to explore my art and my writing and to leave some kind of journal behind for my kids and that is being done. I love comments; who doesn’t? Everyone wants to be acknowledged befriended and praised for their work…its only human. All I can say is God bless them .Only wish I could be just a bit more like them...Happy and not sick.

Don't worry what people think of you. I've had people leave me crazy comments, quote the bible to me and basicly tell me I was heading to hell in a handbasket because I post about celtic holidays, fairies, and magical things. Ignorance can be dangerous, so it is best to ingore them I hope you continue to blog

Hello, I've just come across your blogs and although it would be naive of me to say I was surprised to discover that people could be so unkind it is new to me in the blogging world. To be honest I'm not totally sure what a hedgewitch is but often the unknown makes people afraid. I would say try to be yourself, if you're not hurting anyone you have no reason to even give these people a second thought. There is enough fighting in this world and one of the reasons I wanted to share my garden on the net was to balance out some of the more unpleasant bits. My garden is my restplace. Take a deep breath, be calm and still, its great for the soul.
