My name is Calypso Rose, granted that isn’t my government name, nor the name my family calls me. But it is my public Craft name. As you see, I am a witch. Pagan. I follow the old ways, since long before Christianity was a thought. My Christian friends argue with that statement but this isn’t their blog. I believe everyone is entitled to their own beliefs and opinions as long as they’re respectful, and I’ll try to be respectful of others beliefs as well. Furthering from that, I am a 28-year-old, single mother to 3 school aged children. Life is chaotic and sometimes I’d like to throw in the towel when the going gets tough but alas, here I remain.
I’m not sure what I will use this blog for, as I’m not sure where this path is going to take me. I’ve always felt called to help others, I’m ordained in clergy and had thought about perhaps offering end of life services amongst other things, but that is a work in progress. It all began when I grew tired of attending funerals in the bible belt where the clergy performing the services focused more on trying to convert people to Christianity that on the deceased. It’s disrespectful, in my opinion. I’ve already threatened everyone I know that should I perish before them, and they get someone like that to preside over my services, I will haunt them for the rest of their earthly days. I don’t want traditional services that are unhealthy for the earth with services that are opposite of my life and are more for the churches coffers that to express mourning or remembrance of my life. No thank you. That irritation grew with each funeral I attended until I decided to become legally ordained. Granted this area of the bible belt doesn’t always want to recognize non-Christian ministers but I digress.
I am also chronically ill, I have numerous medical conditions, some that aren’t widely known. It makes life more difficult on top of raising 3 kids mostly alone and trying to support us, take care of us, and keep things running smoothly. I think this blog may wind up being all encompassing, covering my home life and children, my health, and this path I’m on.
I guess we shall see where this blog goes and where my path will lead me.
