Blessings Darlings!

This is a continuation of last Wednesday’s blog “Consider the Source!”

There are some Pagans/Witches/Magic Users who violate my “Sources Matter” rede all the fucking time.  They see something that tickles their Elmo in some way, and NEVER checking to see what the source is or even checking to see if … Continue reading…

Consider the source!

Blessings Darlings!

As all y’all know – my blog isn’t scholarly.  It is full of my opinions, UPG, and a lot of rants.  That said – if I cite hard numbers, info on Paleo Pagan stuff, etc – while I often give the references, if I don’t I’m still able to cite my sources if asked.  As often as possible (paywalls get in the way) what I have are …

So, my 2018.

I travelled a lot this year!
In April I went to Ireland, visiting Ardagh, Sligo, and the Beara Peninsula. Part of that was for a Land Sea Sky Travel tour and it was a great experience.

June I was back for another…

Witchcraft, Acceptability Politics, and Defiance

I’ve often said that I think witchcraft, specifically American neopagan witchcraft, is a victim of its own public relations. This is something we can see more and more clearly as different divides appear within the wider community, often over core issues of inclusion or exclusion. Why do these things happen in witchcraft which is at its core something that should be amorphous enough to hold a…

Kionan’s First Solstice – A Between the World’s Short Story

In canon short story from my Between the Worlds series. Taking place after the events in book #7 Desire and Ashes this is a a solstice story in the spirit of the stories in the Fairy Gifts anthology.
It was written initially for a few friends and shared with a social media fan group but now I’d like to share it here for anyone who follows my blog and enjoys my fiction. It runs around 3700 words….
