  • 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 […]
  • 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 […]
  • 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 […]
  • 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." The process of deciding what needs […]

Made for This

I have a long post about the previous two Sundays that’s partially stalled out because hard to write and partly because I’m waiting on something, but I will get back to it.

I have all sorts of things I could say about this week’s service. I could talk about meeting The Man In The Cowboy […]

Antinoan Poetry

Was talking with some mates about the cultus of Antinous last night and got some interesting pinging, which led to this.

I know you Who drowned in troubles So far from a home You lost long ago

I know you Who gave your youth away To a power You could not resist

I know you […]

Quite Mad

Just signed up for Nanowrimo. Which was Not The Right Thing for my writing before, but I have this bunny, may as well see if I can make something interesting happen by throwing words at it.

Got some worldbuilding out of a chat with my writer ex, so that’s got me to a place where […]

There is Art in my Head and I Know It

And I Feel Thwarted.

And now I have to write about it after reading Felix Warren’s recent interview and some related ruminations.

I feel like I’m right on the brink of a half-dozen things if I could only find the time to focus and get on it and work on coaxing them out. And some […]

U N I T E Let me tell you the Hollow place Secret, Child: Behind your heart You have a void That fills your mouth To hold your life With power A place Speaks To keep your breath In hidden names The space To hold For creating The sky […]
