We celebrated with a spicy chickpea and squash stew by Ruby Tandoh.
I’ve heard that Mabon is basically Pagan Thanksgiving, but I’m not feeling particularly thankful. This year has been very difficult emotionally and that makes me feel angry and resentful – “I’ve finally got some stability in my life and I feel miserable! Not fair!!!”
So, I decided I’m just going to be thankful that the universe didn’t throw anything extra at us over the last twelve months. Nobody got sick or died. Nobody lost their job. We didn’t have to wrangle with a terrifying bureaucracy or move house again.
At least I got to be sad in relative peace.
Happy Autumn Equinox!
