• Most witches don’t believe in gods. They know that the gods exist, of course. They even deal with them occasionally. But they don’t believe in them. They know them too well. It would be like believing in the postman. Terry Pratchett

  • Opet Again
    Just popping in to remind everyone that with the Opet season upon us again, the Emboatening Crew is still rolling to support Kiva loans. (My office renovations are going well if slowly, so who knows if that means I’ll get more work done when they’re done.)
  • 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).
  • 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 […]
  • 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."

About This Website

My intent putting together this website is to accumulate a stable set of resources for how I am developing and have developed personal religious practices, as well as an archive of the things which I have built.

Partially, I want to be able to reference (for my own personal use) things that I have worked through; partially, I have answered a number of questions sufficiently often within various religious communities that I would like to be able to just point at my answers and save myself a good deal of time.

I also happen to find it useful to talk to an audience, even if nobody is actually listening, in order to organise my thoughts.

Peaceful Awakenings, which is my public research notes and related material from a reconstructionist standpoint, will be more frequently updated, at least when I am producing research, but those updates will continue to be primarily focused on reconstruction process.

Eventually, there will be connections to my other endeavours.
