As a Pagan I believe in goodwill to all humans on this planet, extending a helping hand as I am able and our responsibility to treat our planet and all of its life forms with care. To some of you that makes me a "tree hugger", so be it, I am a tree hugger. The other not so nice term for me and mine is "a bleeding heart". I accept this with pride as well. It means that I CARE and that is not a bad thing.
I have been lax in my duty as a tree hugging bleeding heart the last few years but I aim to change that this year.
Why? I don't know, I only know that it is time to keep my promise to the Great Spirit and the Goddess to do what I can. My work is to ease the suffering of those who need easing and look after my small bit of the planet.
As you can imagine it can be demanding work but I pledge to give to the panhandlers what I have, walk my streets and pick up trash, volunteer in whatever soup kitchens I can find and go with the group who hands out blankets and other necessities to those who choose or are forced to live without a home, toss seed bombs into places that need the boost, and knit for the needy.
