One Year

One year ago today I started this blog. And what a year it's been.

In trying to figure out a name for it, I chose "Hecate's Crossroad." In my Craft, I am consecrated to Hecate, the Goddess of the Crossroads, of the Three Paths, because at every crossroad in life you have only three choices. Going back the way you came is not an option.

My first real post was a tribute to Gable Godiva, a wonderful and infuriating Greyhound who was gone far too soon. Other companions have left me this year, some about whom I'm not yet ready to speak. There is no life without death, there is no love without loss.

In this one short year, I have seen endings and beginnings, positives and negatives, made progress and felt like I was trying to go up a down escalator. This blog has been a great way to blow off steam, express incredible frustration, and share a little joy now and then.

Thanks for reading.

Amazing how a simple thing like blogging can help, isn't it? It's why I keep blogging; I need this safety valve.

Most people, if they've only read what I write on the blog, wouldn't recognize me in person. It's how I blow off steam.
