My weekly gratitude post, in the Celebrate the Small Things [ongoing] Blog Hop.

I’m grateful for a great interview on Why Shamanism Now, with Christina Pratt.

I’m grateful for another year around the sun. To that end, I’m grateful for the guides, friends, and loved ones who have helped me grow this year, who have listened, given, prayed, and loved. It matters.

Life Betwixt - Essays on Allies in the Everyday and Shamanism Among (Book 2in the Intentional Insights Blog-to-Book series), by S. Kelley HarrellI’m thrilled that my new book is out–Life Betwixt – Essays on Animism in the Everyday and Shamanism Among. I intended to release at the end of last year, though health and life just didn’t commiserate. Check it out!

Along the same line, I’m grateful that Mars has turned direct. The last few months retrograde have brought the most intensely sweeping change I’ve had in two decades or more.

I’m grateful for finding some creative spirit amidst a really hard time.

I’m grateful for devious plans and the loads of support they’re getting from friends and loved ones.

I’m happy to welcome newcomers to the really real blog carnival– What It Is Wednesday.

What are you grateful for this week? How will you show thanks? Who is grateful for you? I am!
