In fact, everything that I own is either somewhere on a truck headed for Ohio (I hope!) or stuffed into my car. I have no more house keys- just a car key. It is simultaneously liberating and strange. I am very much a Taurus- earthy and rooted and I get attached to things.
Most nights, we stayed in Motel 6's: Wells, Nevada; Laramie, Wyoming; Columbia, Missouri; and now Indianapolis, Indiana. They are cheap and pet-friendly. As a weary traveler arriving with a cranky toddler and two frustrated parrots, I am grateful how easy they have been (although my back aches from the awful beds). In between, we stayed with other initiates of our Witchcraft tradition, wonderful friends- they opened their home to us and we stayed an extra whole day to visit.
I am grateful for my Witch family- an almost invisible (to outsiders) network of people across the world who don't get all showy about their connection to the gods- because they don't have to. I am so grateful for tribe of all sorts, including my Rad Fae kin. I am grateful for my immediate family- my partner, my ex-wife, my son, my two parrots, and my Witch mama and siblings. I am grateful to have what resources that I do have- a car to get us across the country, places to stop, and great ideas to ponder and learn about in school. I am grateful for the food I eat today- with friends and family. I am grateful for the family that awaits us in Ohio, with promises of shelter, an oil change, and open arms.
I know that you reading this after the fact (there are posts queued up before this one), but Happy Mabon, y'all! For what are you grateful today?
