Near the middle of January, I went on a witchcraft spree. I reset my altar (A bit late for the new year, but you do what you can when you can), creates some personal spell jars and did some intention setting.

Practicality and Belief
It is hard to be a skeptical person and a pagan. It is hard to find that sweet spot between knowing science and wanting to believe in the magical.
“It’s Just Business”
Today, my coworker regaled a tale of how, when he had his own auto parts business, he had created an enemy from his practices.
Ironically, I never really got into LiveJournal. It was a fun place, but it didn’t have the feel as my first blogging home. In fact, no place has felt as comfy and homey as my first blogging space.
The Best Mental Break Ever
As I said in a previous post, I had a mental break last year. It was a scary, but somewhat life changing event that I am still processing, adjusting and applying to my life, nearly every day. As I exist in my life, I find myself rearranging my ideas and priorities of what my life is supposed to be, what it is supposed to mean, and what kind of impact I am supposed to have in this world.
Rectifying some Regrets
I love my home. It is peaceful, calming and a space I always dreampt of living. I fully enjoy telling people who say, “I wanna live in a cabin in the woods!” that I am somewhat living that dream. It isn’t as cottagecore as they imagine, but, for all intents and purposes, it is what it is.
Calling for Help
A funny thing often happens when you take that step, suck up the courage, and admit to the world the deep seated pain of loneliness and depression that has been prevalent in your life for longer than you can remember being happy.
On My Craft
I started onto the pagan path when I was 19. At that time, there was a huge new age/pagan resurgence, as it was the late 80’s – early 90’s. While not on par with the historic neopagan revival in the 60’s, and the unrivaled movement in the early 1900’s, it was still significant.
It’s been a while and a year or so. Things have changed even as they sort of stayed the same. It is the start of a new spring, and to be honest, it feels like the start of a lot of new.
First person shooters
It is kind of amazing the way people hold onto these ideas that if they haven’t had first person experience with things, it either doesn’t exist, or anything to do with it has been greatly exaggerated.
