Current and Future Goals and Dreams (2018-19)

Each year I like to look back over the previous year, and then set goals for the coming year. Many people do this on Jan 1st; I prefer to do it on my birthday. I often refine the accomplishments and goals until my new year, Samhain, but the bulk of the work is done on or around my birthday. These …Continue reading →

Current and Future Goals and Dreams (2017)

Each year I like to look back over the previous year, and then set goals for the coming year. Many people do this on Jan 1st; I prefer to do it on my birthday. I often refine the accomplishments and goals until my new year, Samhain, but the bulk of the work is done on or around my birthday. I …Continue reading →

Broke my streak (life update)

It took almost 18 months, but I finally broke my write-a-blog-post-every-week streak. Ah well, guess I’m not perfect.* To be fair, breaking the streak meant traveling to Paris, San Francisco, and then Georgia within a month, along with some personal things that I’m not ready to share here (yet), so it wasn’t anything small that broke the mold. So, here …Continue reading →

Words of Me: Two

Creating a kind of mission statement. 1. My mind, body and soul are very important to me. I promise to take care of them by… Treating my body with respect for the hard work it does so elegantly.

A storm is brewing, perhaps already broke about a fundraising effort by the (Budapestian) Dianic Witch, Ruth Barrett for her anthology, Female Erasure.With entries like “Transgender Rights: The Elimination of the Human Rights of Women,” “The Attack On Female Sovereign Space In Pagan Community,” and “Destruction Of A Marriage: My Husband’s Descent Into Transgenderism” it’s clear that this will be …Continue reading →

Childhood

FromĀ a ‘meme’ that came across my FB feed earlier: (trigger warning: childhood trauma)

Dealing with ‘Others’

June is Pagan Values month, and unlike previous years, I’ve actually been given a topic I can write about. (I’m not great with overly broad topics, it doesn’t usually stir my creative juices.) Today’s writing is “others and othering. What are your philosophies of conduct when around those very different from yourself?” It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the …Continue reading →

Camp NaNoWriMo — goal achieved!

I’ve been meaning to write a book, a follow up to Magickal Connections, for years now. But it’s a daunting task, and I couldn’t get my ‘handle’, my thesis if you will. Then in late March I realized I had the title and all at once the whole outline came to me. (Sometimes I hate my muse, but she’s kickass …Continue reading →
