bridget’s fire

One of the things we Gwyddons do at Bridget’s Fire is “sacrifice a candle to Bridget”. We light a candle (preferably red, but it doesn’t matter) and leave it in a safe place to burn completely out. It’s a beautiful practice, and I need it this year more than ever.

Appalachian gothic fiction writer - my works reflect a love of literature flavored by the darkness and magic residing in these ancient mountains. In my spare time, I'm a Simmer, I tumbl, I journal, but I always have a very strange sense of humor. I have lived away from the mountains and lived deep in the mountains. I currently live in Central Kentucky with my lifepartner and his cat. The mountains, their culture, their superstitions, their particular magics, will always be in my blood.
