Our power went out Wednesday evening about 7:00 and didn’t come back on till a little before midnight last night. No major damage, but we’re going to have to throw out everything in the refrigerator. And I didn’t sleep much on Wednesday night.

For all my good Pagan love of nature, I have NO romanticized dreams about living about living in a “simpler time.” I LIKE technology, and I have NO desire to live in Texas without air conditioning!

About John Beckett

I grew up in Tennessee with the woods right outside my back door. Wandering through them gave me a sense of connection to Nature and to a certain Forest God. I’m a Druid graduate of the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids, the Coordinating Officer of the Denton Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans and a former Vice President of CUUPS Continental. I’ve been writing, speaking, teaching, and leading public rituals for the past eleven years. I live in the Dallas – Fort Worth area and I earn my keep as an engineer.
