The reasons presenting themselves for calling this the Hedge are several. Aside from the implication of the backyard hedge and the simplicity of just a couple of friends getting together to exchange views there is the fact that a plurality of Herons, (one of the totems for mysticism) is a hedge. And though my own totem and Judy’s is the Swan, a plurality of swans is called a lamentation, I did not want the overriding sentiment of this blog to be that of sadness. Besides, I like herons, their medicine has worked with me from time to time, and they are quiet and mindful of their own lives more than others. That seems appropriate for those of us on this path.
I hope everyone is able to contribute occasionally. Just because I changed it to a blog is no sign I don’t want commentary, in fact, I waited quite a while, hoping that the forum would take off without my having to do the monologue thing. Since it didn’t, this seems as good an answer as any. I will not object at any time, if others wish to go back to the forum, it is still “up”, and I will not delete it unless it is neglected for a year or more.
As it is, it seems that this way, you can still give me feedback through the use of comments, and I will value those greatly!! I do love you, each and every one.
