Default I've been accepted....

...as a Candidate in the AODA (Ancient Order of Druids in America). Studies for at least a year focused on the Spiral of Healing will follow toward the First Degree.

This was not a decision made lightly but with a great deal of deliberation. Yesterday I took the action to apply for Candidacy and felt a great peace come over me. Then later in the day I noticed an odd light through the front door. I stepped outside and was greeted with this, which told me the decision had been Blessed.

When you die, only three things will remain of you, since you will abandon all material things on the threshold of the Otherworld: what you have taught to others, what you have created with your hands, and how much love you have spread. So learn more and more in order to teach wise, long-lasting values. Work more and more to leave the world things of great beauty. And Love, love, love people around you for the light of Love heals everything.
French Druid Triad, Francois Bourillon

We can commiserate about the triads - the hardest part of OBOD for me.
