• Some part of our being knows this is where we came from. We long to return, and we can, because the cosmos is also within us. We’re made of star stuff. We are a way for the cosmos to know itself. Carl Sagan

  • Just a quick note
    I’ve updated my bio page with a link to Les Cabinets Des Polytheistes, where my story “Spine of the World” is published (and in which people can play Spot The Netjer if they are so inclined), and my less-specific webspace Suns in Her Branches, which is broader than this space (which is specifically for reconstructionist-derived […]

  • Opet is coming ’round again
    And the Emboatening Crew is once more celebrating by making Kiva loans. You’re all welcome to join us. (My monthly column in Patheos Pagan is about Opet and charitable works, and will be going up tomorrow assuming nothing goes wrong.)Filed under: Festivals, Uncategorized
  • The Art of Being A God
    It’s interesting having one foot in reconstructionist religion and one foot in religious witchcraft, for a lot of reasons. One of the things that I’ve been thinking about lately is the shape of how the gods appear within the context […]
  • Mythopoeia
    Continuing with rambling on the topic of my exploration of pagan movement history, another critical concept: mythopoeia. The word means, literally, “myth-making”, and it is one of the near inescapable traits of at least the origin points of pagan religions. […]
  • Hills of the Horizon: The Past is Another Country
    The problem with extrapolation from history is that nothing is testable. The evolution of a religion over time is not a predictable and easily comprehensible thing, where we can look at a point in time and say, "It was like this then, so it would be like that now."

I’ve been busy

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about what I want to be doing here and in the associated stuff, and getting things done. A lot of my efforts have been going into the setup for Beewine Press, which as of this writing has a Wheel of the Year calendar and a Kemetic calendar available for sale.

I’ve been doing more writing – not just on the Kemetic book that I’m working on – and I’m pondering setting myself a goal of one short story a month, just as a thing to do. I’ve been doing a lot of processing on what I am doing, what I want to be doing, all the things I have intended and left undone.

I’ve been studying German. I’ve been solidifying a regular daily practice.

I find myself thinking a great deal of one of my father’s favorite lines in the Book of Common Prayer: “We have left undone those things which we ought to have done; And we have done those things which we ought not to have done; And there is no health in us.”

And so, to doing the things I ought, and leaving undone the things I ought not.
