Last Year, This Year

Last year was a battle. I had a virus that knocked me around for months. Rest and fluids wasn't enough. Specialists questioning my sanity were not appreciated. I lost faith in the system, or what faith I had left anyway. I've been battling the system all my life, and towards the end of last year, I stopped fighting. I'm taking a walk away from the system - not just the health system, but the norms of society too.You probably realise I've been heading towards this for some years given my posts against society's views on sexuality and sex.

2018 is the year I'm going to express the inner me, and let you join in the journey I've taken where I've been looking at alterrnative things. The weird but wonderful.

I'll try to share more of me - strange things I think, investigate, bring to myself, and dabble in. I'll try to post something each week and get into that habit again. I like expressing myself on my blog, and missed it last year.
This is the new me with my lairy pants, complete with dragonflies, and my gemstones for balance and energy. I'll try not to scare everyone too much, so mostly I'll be lairy at home, but I did wear these down the street today and the world didn't end! I've always toned down to muted colours, jeans, and black trousers, but I love bright clashing things. I love colours with energy. So I'm going to try to have a few bright things I wear without worrying about what people think of the mad woman :)

I'm not entirely sure where my musings will take me, but I'm hoping to look at things like:
  • Religion
  • Feminism
  • Trees
  • Energy
  • Meditation
  • Colour
  • Tarot
  • Runes
  • Oracle cards
  • Gemstones
  • Druidism
  • Astrology
  • Photography
  • Art
  • Nature
  • Past lives
  • Akashic records
  • Paganism
  • Synchronicity
  • Meditation
  • Mindfulness
  • Wicca
  • Lucid dreaming
  • Hecate, the Crone, and the three fates
  • Acupuncture
  • Chinese medicine
  • Reiki
  • Energy and chakras

Do you have anything you do that's a little alternate? Anything I should add to my list?


  1. I'm so not alternate, but I love clashing colours too. so go you.
    I'm late to visit you here this year and sorry I missed so much.
    Happy New Year to you, Cate. I hope it's a better one for you :)

    1. Hello Miss Lily,
      No worries about being late. I wasn't sure that I could keep up the posts, but I'm enjoying it again.

      Happy New Year to you in your bright colours too!

      Hope the alternate posts aren't too 'out there' for you!

      Cate xo
