This is a delicious evening, when the whole body is one sense, and imbibes delight through every pore. I go and come with a strange liberty in Nature, a part of herself. As I walk along the stony shore of the pond in my shirt-sleeves, though it is cool as well as cloudy and windy, and I see nothing special to attract me, all the elements are unusually congenial to me.
–Henry David Thoreau
I really think ol’ HDT had the right idea. There is something to be said for a quiet moment alone in the woods. Let me paint the scene for you:
The Wiccan Haus resort is on an island off the coast of Maine. Your cell phone and your computer won’t work on the premises, but you won’t miss your facebook feed or your twitter stream when you’re relaxing in the waters of the natural hot spring, or meditating on the lawn during one of Trixie’s deep-breathing classes. A short ride away from the main Haus, there is an apple orchard where the apples are always in season.
And somewhere on the island (I won’t disclose the locations, for privacy you see) the Wiccan Haus authors have built our tree houses, our own private retreats where we can gather to brainstorm the very best stories from the goings-on at the Wiccan Haus to share with you. With Wiccans, shifters, vampires and more all mixing with ordinary humans like you and me, there are so many stories yet to be told! Click on the photo of my treehouse to visit the Wiccan Haus blog to learn more about the series.
If you haven’t visited the Wiccan Haus yet, won’t you come for a visit? The series begins with Dominique Eastwick’s book “Shifting Hearts,” and I recommend you read that book first. The other stories may be read in any order. Click on the book cover to be taken to that book’s page on the Musa Publishing website. My own novella for the Wiccan Haus, Shifter’s Dance, is due out in November.
