lammas goal updates

One of my goals this turn of the wheel was to finish the book  Faery Tale by Signe Pike. After far too long, I can finally say that I have finished reading this book.
Faery Tale: One Woman's Search for Enchantment in a Modern World

Why did it take me so long, especially considering that I'm such a quick reader normally?

It's not that I didn't like the book, cause I did. But it found it long to read. I had a hard time getting into it for the longest time. There was something about it that just didn't really grab me until the end. Perhaps it was because I felt that it took her too long to make peace with the journey she was on, even though she sought it out. Plus, her reflections on her father's death just didn't jive with the story for me.

That said, I enjoyed the book. I know, it doesn't seem like it, right? But I did. The last portion of the book had a very Eat, Pray, Love vibe, from a pagan inspired bent. I enjoyed how she pulled the threads together in the end, making the loosely hung together adventures feel like they fit into a larger, amorphous web.

I'd recommend it. It was a good read and while it didn't shed new light on the faery realm, it was nice to read a pagan inspired memoir for a change.

In other goal related news:

I have been drinking my water. I called both my brothers last week and texted the week before. And I cast 1 practice circle on Monday and will likely do another tomorrow night. I've done 4 art journal pages already and am ready to do some more after this week is over.

So yay... I'm getting my shit done!
