The year has been interesting and chaotic at times but not all chaos is a bad thing.  I have done a lot and am enjoying a lot while other things continue to be a struggle in daily life.  Sometimes I wonder if it is the multiple roles I play or the recovery from the trauma associated with the loss of my mom that has me in a perpetual state of exhaustion.  I think it is a combination of all of those things, even though many of the tasks are fulfilling and make me happy.

Raising a family of 6 is challenging in and of itself.  When I add onto that school, a full time job, writing my books, workshops, writing for Daughters of Eve and PNC, life becomes a mixture of textures that are booth beautiful and tiring.  I feel so blessed to be able to fill my life with all of these things and I also know I need to take a blessed nap sometimes.  Naps are good ya know...

In an attempt to update my blog I will say that I was accepted for my masters program at Cal State East Bay in Social Work, I start in the fall.  I have the third book in editing with the publisher and waiting for the first rewrite.  Robert was in his first play and was magnificent.  He did so well and has so much stage presence that I felt so proud of him.

I had a fabulous PantheaCon and presented three workshops.  It was great to be a part of so many fabulous things happening all at once and to enjoy the company of those I don't get to see that often.  I am now coming to the end of my term as the co-first officer of the Northern Local Council of CoG (not sure if I will run for the next but might) and I have been asked and accepted a board position with Solar Cross.  I am excited to be working closely with Thorn on some really important projects.

I was asked and accepted to be a Featured Speaker at Pagan Spirit Gathering and will be going to Illinois in June for that festival.  Looking forward to seeing all of my Minnesota folks again and meeting new people.  I also spoke at the 11th Annual pagan Festival this past weekend and was honored to be asked to speak for a slot.  That was a fun experience.

All in all things are transforming, shifting and recovering from the last two and a half years... it is in progress.  I am still working hard and writing harder.

Blessed Be
Crystal
