Ritual



Grove of the Black Oak had a wonderful Samhain Ritual today. It included a hike to the Pennsylvania champion black oak for which our Grove is named. Spare and I also visited this tree in the picture, which is about 50 yards from our Ritual site. The words are: "My path follows you and yours me. Which is your TREE. What is your KEY."

Part of our Grove's afternoon was a hike to the Pennsylvania champion black oak for which the Grove was named. It is a marvelous tree, and when we got to it, each of us fell into a private reverie.

My reverie had to do with Pennsylvania and how I have a tenuous hold on the farm where my ancestors lived for generations.

From one oak in a park, to many others on a property in Bedford County 250 miles away. I prayed to keep my farm.

Now, while the veil is thin, I petition my ancestors. Help me keep the farm.
