2018 Greetings to you! I just went and had a look, and I am about ten days shy of four years of this blog. I truly had no idea where or even if this project would still be kicking along at this point when I started, so I am always somewhat surprised at how long I have been doing these things! Thank you for your support, reading, comments, shares, and all of that. They and you are greatly appreciated.
I have always known that my clients & customers were very special, but the last few months have really shown me to what degree that is actually true. The support given to me and my family by y’all around Ash’s death has been phenomenal and appreciated more than is possible to say. It was and is rather mind-blowing to watch & experience.
I had already scheduled the end of the year off- basically all of December - for my surgery, and so when Ash died in November, we just shut down the shop. Which meant that about 40 or more most-likely-intended-as-holiday-gifts would not be made or shipped. I had one request for a refund. One! Y’all rock so fucking hard, the walls shake as you pass by! (No issues with the one refund, either, that is not at all my point!) Seriously. You are badasses, every one of you, even if you know it not.
I started ‘playing’ in the shop again right around Christmas, and it’s been great getting back into the silver and the altars & spirits & Talismans. It really is a pleasure to do what I do. And now, minus a hole in the abdomen/Platypus (see Energy Leaks for more on this) I am so much quicker! It’s amazing as if there is a mind/body/spirit connection or something at work. Who could have imagined such a thing?
I expect to have all the orders that were intended to have shipped in 2018 completed within a month, most of them sooner, a few possibly later, the later ones being those that still need design work, mainly. Feel free to inquire if you have question, I’m aidan(at)aidanwachter(dot)com, but things look on track from this point out, and I’ll be sending updates in another week or two to let the folks whose orders are already late know where they stand with shipping dates, but it’s still a bit too early to tell for the most part.
I have a number of plans for 2018, first, getting caught up, getting the book out, and then building some structures for other types of transmissions, most of which will initially be announced and offered via the Six Ways Facebook group (this is also where I am building the first video repository while I work out what I am going to do on that front long term) and the newsletter. Please join or sign up if you are interested in such things.
Thank you for making a rough year far better than it would have been without you. I have no words to adequately express my appreciation.
May you and yours be blessed in the coming year.
