Mabon Dark Moon
Mabon came in this morning at 5:35 am.  I felt the dark blanket gently land over me this morning.  I had planned to do a little something, along the gratitude line.  I got up, got my girl up for school then sat on the couch listening to the weather.  My head became heavy, some times I do doze before I have to get my youngest up, but this time I was out! I mean OUT!  It felt like a dark blanket was placed on me and off to dream time I was.  The Dark Moon is just around the ... Read More

Your skin is your largest living organ. It is our first line of defense against infection & disease.It is continuously turning over new cells. However as we age this process slows down. The outer most layer, the epidermis, is equal to the thickness of 7 sheets of paper, the eye & mouth area being equal to one.
