Life Is Good - It Really Is!

Dreamwriter over at Spiritual Expression, and Nydia over at Bringing up Salamanders, have passed on this "Life Is Good" award/quiz. Since I've been remiss in keeping up with these over the past month or two, I'm going to do my best at getting it right this time! I promise to try not to ramble - as this will be a long enough post.

I've noticed that some of the questions are similar on both posts, so I'm going to try to combine them:

Dreamwriter asks: What's your most memorable dream?
Nydia asks: Favourite clothes to sleep in? Favourite thing to do before sleep. First thing to do in the morning?

Unfortunately I'm prone to nightmares, so a dreamless sleep is what I crave. I'm a tank top and undies girl. Before I sleep I say goodnight to the Goddess and God. First thing in the a.m. is start the coffee maker!

Dreawriter asks: Do you have a Spirit or Totem animal?
Nydia asks: Favourite moon phase?

Crow and Horse have shown up consistantly in my life. The best moon phase for me energetically is the waxing phase. I find that the full moon is overwhelming sometimes and the waning phase leaves me with lower energy.

Dreamwriter asks: If you could go on any journey, where would you end up? A cozy winter's eve by the hearth or a warm summer's day by the sea?

I've always wanted to go to Greece - especially Crete. And I'd take a Winter's eve by the hearth.

Both ask: What is your favorite poem/book/quote?

It's too difficult to pick just one author/poet. I am a Constant Reader of Stephen King. I love poems by Frost, Rumi and Mary Oliver. I love the quote "The only difference between a sinner and a saint, is that every saint has a past, and every sinner has a future." I think it's by Oscar Wilde, but I can't be sure at the moment.

Both ask: What are your most frequently used/favourite herbs?

I use my cooking herbs the most frequently. Rosemary, oregano, chives, thyme, basil. On everthing! Favourite magical herbs are Rue and Sage. Nydia asked what my favourite food is - and I'd have to say herbs too - if you can classify them as a food.

Thanks so much for sticking with me through the long post. And thanks again to Nydia and Dreamwriter for the tag!

Oh Rue!! I'd have more nightmares if I kept reading Stephen King. I just can't do it anymore. It ruins my life alone in the country (well - alone when the hubby and kids go on holidays from time to time).

Surrounded by horses and crows myself. We must share the same totems

I agree with Ange above about the Stephen King novels. I used to read them until I realized that many of the nightmares I was having had connections with the books I was reading.
