Pantheacon 2012 (Part 1)

[written Feb. 19, 2012] Okay.  So I am at Pantheacon 2012!  This is the third day.  I haven’t had time to blog yet because there are 6 workshop slots a day (a dozen or more to choose from for each slot) and they run from 9 am to after midnight!  They have been a mixture [Read More...]

I’ve previously posted about D. H. Lawrence before.  I am fascinated by his ideas, especially by his shorter writings.  (I am still trying to trudge through Sons and Lovers, which is supposed to be his best novel.)  Professor Hutton identified Lawrence as a proto-Pagan in his Triumph of the Moon.  But an entire book could [Read More...]

Family Midwinter Ritual (Revised 2014)

We’re coming up on our family Midwinter celebration.  (We call it “midwinter” because it is the middle of winter, not the beginning of spring here in the Midwest.)  Here’s my outline for the upcoming celebration.  It includes a ritual burning of a piece of paper on which something is written.  I very much dislike how [Read More...]
