At our Winter Gathering in Glastonbury on 5th December, it was a great honour to be welcomed by the first mayor of any town to declare themselves an openly practising Druid, Denise Michell. Here is an edited extract from her welcoming speech:

An amazing new magazine was launched earlier this year by OBOD members – Druid: On Being an American Druid. And now the Fall edition has just come out – it’s free, it’s online and in full colour, has embedded video, and this edition is packed – with 97 pages of great contributions from around the world.


‘Ah, faeries, dancing under
the Moon,
A Druid land, a Druid tune!
While still I may, I write
for you
The love I lived, the dream I
knew.’ WB Yeats

When the time of the new Moon approaches, I watch the sky in the early morning for that last sight of her as she prepares to rise with the Sun, soon to be lost in his bright arms.

A Full Moon, a Blue Moon on July 31!

This little light of mine

I’m going to let it shine

Oh, this little light of mine

I’m going to let it shine…

Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine!
