Sharing some of the typical shenanigans I get up to on weekends. This is my final semester of grad school, so I'm taking it as easy as I can. Weekends are the time I mainly get to do my professional job, but it's relaxing work (political science research) and helps me be productive spiritually as … Continue reading Weekends are for spirits and Sobek-Ra
Finally breaking my radio silence to post some quick thoughts about Lenaia! At the beginning of the year, divination + an educated guess told me Dionysos had claimed my festival calendar and practical focus for this year. Lenaia is the first major Dionysian festival I've celebrated this year - although January Noumenia was a doozy … Continue reading Lenaia 2018!

I've always been a good tech-obsessed 90's kid.

Normally such a silence would indicate a "fallow" time for me, as I'm practically always attached to some form of social media. This radio silence was a bit different, though. I originally took a break from the online polytheist community for … Continue reading Blessed Silence
It's still freezing outside most days, but the tulips and dandelions are sprouting, so I'm relieved to announce that Spring has arrived in my neck of the woods! My yard always has wild onions in bloom, so I picked some onions and dandelions to offer to the ancestors and to Wenut and Heqet. I … Continue reading Spring Begins
