I just completed a new wand as part of my Druid studies through OBOD. I’m not sure the exact species of wood – it came from a thorn tree that started growing wild on the edge of my herb bed. I let it grow for most of a year (2006, I think), then realized it was going to take over the whole bed if I didn’t cut it. When I did, I saved a section of the main shaft –… Read more

I work for a decent company (not all corporations are soul-sucking bastions of evil) with some good folks. As jobs go, it’s a good one – it pays the bills, and there are far worse ways to make a living.But that’s not why I’m here.
