  • 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 […]

Gods are Stories that are Alive

My oldest kid has been expressing some interest in studying witchcrafty stuff, which leaves me with the puzzle of how to start laying some groundwork.
