• All witches are very conscious of stories. They can feel stories, in the same way that a bather in a little pool can feel the unexpected trout. Knowing how stories work is almost all the battle. Terry Pratchett

  • CowOfGold Moving
    An update on my previous post: Cow of Gold will have a new home here when the maintainer has a chance to put up the site again (with some revisions, apparently). Advertisements
  • Minor Call for Nerdy Action
    I know I’ve been profoundly absent for a while – my research stuff has gone a bit by the wayside – but I wanted to bring something to people’s attention: The Egyptian mythology/symbology resource “Cow of Gold is hosted on Wikispaces, which is Going Away. Not all of the pages of Cow of Gold are […]
  • Unsettled Time
    We are living in unsettled time. Wp Rnpt has ended the time between time, the Days Upon the Year in which time is upended and unordered, but time is still not aligned fully. We have space in which action exists, in which we can uphold the world, set ma’at in its place, the leverage to […]
  • On Falling in Love
    For a long time, whenever I wanted to talk about the experience of conversion when I found Kemeticism, I talked about falling in love. It wasn’t just “Oh, this religious concept works for me,” it was a passionate thing, an […]
  • Eclipse Magic
    I am eight. I have been given a subscription to the magazine Sky & Telescope as part of our preparation for Halley’s Comet, and I read through it, earnestly trying to make sense of the articles, studying the pictures. I […]

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." The process of deciding what needs […]

Wondering Woman

Hearing a recording of Malala Yousafzai speaking can apparently make me start leaking tears.

Here is the text of the speech.

Here is a chunk of that:

Though I appear as one girl, though I appear as one girl, one person, who is 5 foot 2 inches tall, if you include my high heels. (It […]

Heroes Just For One Day

June 28, 2015: I was reading blogs, specifically the Slacktivist, and I read this, and I was overcome. It was a symbolic gesture, quickly overturned, but it was a moment that convinced me that I was living in a world with giants. Giants I would never have the luck, the blessing to encounter, but it […]

Kicking off UU Pagan Sundays

So I am coming to identify myself, mentally, as a UU pagan. (I should probably have a poke at CUUPS at some point, but everything I’ve heard about that has been pretty relentlessly Wiccish.) Coming back to church on a regular basis, feeling ready to commit to connecting with that community, those specific people, involving […]

#mypolytheism: What is a co-religionist?

Spinning off some thoughts from Jack’s Is There Community in #mypolytheism?

I am not sure that there is a robust structural concept of what a co-religionist is in the pagan community. And I’m not just referring to the bit where the Book Wiccan dominant pagan culture sort of talks over everyone else, though yeah, that’s […]
