A Year and a Day Completed

So I've done my Year and a Day for Wicca. I enjoyed it, but I didn't get as much out of it as I wanted. This wasn't due to Nordic Wicca (the eclectic brand I practice because I feel more comfortable with it) as much as it was to a lot of other personal problems …

Halloween Skeleton Wedding Feast Pix (Part 2 – The Groom and Feast)

The Groom awaits his lovey bride. Oh, what wonderful expectations he has for tonight! Cane, gloves, pocket watch.
