When Worlds Collide on Kindle

From the blurb: Hest just wants a break. With Yule finally over, and his responsibility to his family along with it, he’s looking forward to a well-earned rest – and he wants that rest far, far away from his siblings. Perhaps stopping by the city his mother calls home isn’t the best idea, but meeting…

On Offerings

Because this topic came up in the comments and in private discourse so much, I’ve decided it deserves it’s own post.  While I talk a good game about Keeping It Real and about not having my shit together, and about stumbling a lot, often over the basics as I lose sight of them, one thing…

On the topic of finding a patron

If you don’t read my blog regularly, you may not know this, but I don’t generally like the sort of “do this, don’t do that,” advice. At least, I don’t like to give that sort of advice. I prefer the ‘hey, here’s some things I’ve done, here’s been my experience, here’s how I came into…

Litany of Obligation

Something you may not know about me: I can be a bit of a doormat. One downside to being able to put myself in other people’s shoes is, if I can understand where they are coming from, I wind up forgiving all sorts of things. No respect for what’s important me, or what my boundaries…

Random babblings

[This is mostly thinking out loud; you’ve been warned.] In a couple of hours Beth and I are heading down to Black Sheep Gathering, and we’re looking forward to that. Historically, this has been a day during which we honor both Frigga and Poseidon, as well as others, because: sheep and fiber and fiber arts!…

Death Sits Here

Death sits here At our table, served tea and wine and water in our mugs. He hangs his wide-brimmed hat by the door, places his cloak with our coats in the closet kicks the mud from his well-worn boots and leans his staff by the door, next to Beth’s. Our home is as much his…

Knowledge, Wisdom, and Gnosis — TPE March Week 1

Staring at this topic, I think: how am I going to write this? What am I going to write about? I think: I’ll go to the dictionaries, get some working definitions, and talk about how those definitions inform my path. I’m thick in some more academic focused books right now (Osun Across the Waters, edited…

Nauthiz

Need drives me. I’m not special in that; I suspect that need drives a lot of people, when (heh) the need arises. Holding what I know of myself (I’m not driven by want or by interests — I’m more gentle in my approach when I’m writing regularly or when I’m knitting) and thinking about need,…

Me and Odin (the Pagan Experience week 7)

Wk 3- Feb. 16- Deity and the Divine– This will be the third week’s topic every month and an opportunity for you to share with everyone those who guide, inspire and inform you. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ I talk about Poseidon a lot. This blog was created originally in part to provide a real-time glimpse into what life…

Questions about marrying gods or spirits?

I haven’t talked about it because I’m a tad superstitious when it comes to talking about writing projects before a certain amount of work has gone into them, but Beth has talked about it, so why not? We’re writing a book on Sacred Marriage. (Most important to note: we’re writing a book on our experiences…
