Going Down

It is the weekend and my day is filled with books, coffee, and incense. I put on some good music and sat in front of my altar for a while. On my altar sit a variety of things. It is less a geometric space akin to a physical mandala as some altars are, but more […]

The Green Man

I recently attended Faerieworlds in Oregon. I’ve gone several years now and this was the first year that I started with the opening circle dance and finished with the last act, camping out the entire weekend. I loved it.

She is apparently a successful writer in Deep Ecology, yet this essay specifically lacks ‘umph’. I see it as inefective against anyone but the choir, and […]

Orange

Oregon. My fourth Autumn. My fourth Samhain grows nigh. Samhain. How many Samhains have I observed someplace. After working a bar in Souther Cal I spent Samhain with some tarot cards on the beach listening to the Pacific Ocean crash upon the shore. Samhain in Arkansas and a cold snap and I was out in […]

A Static Universe

Here is another entry. I am soon to go to work, however I am standing on the threshold of a sea of ideas in my mind. I cannot really classify these thoughts or the images within, yet it is mystical. While I look out over the horizon in my mind I cannot tell more than […]
