A light has passed, quietly...I stumbled upon this news, and while many of you won't have heard of her work, other readers will recognize her name and be saddened at the news of her death. The following was borrowed from the blog of Musings of a Quaker Witch and written by Selena Fox of Circle Sanctuary.

Some of her books reside on my shelves, and her work has woven in and out of my own Pagan path. She walked the path, and shared the journey, with intelligence and poetry of soul, and her voice will be missed.
