Practical and Magical Wildfire Safety

I was listening to Modern Pagan Podcast’s (Correction: Pagan Weekly News) June 10th episode where RevKess and Zaracon discussed the Colorado wildfires. (Thank you for mentioning the anthology and blog!) Even in cities sixty miles away from the major blaze, there is thick smoke tainting the air with its acrid smell. The haze dims streetlights and fills store entryways. If you are near the wildfire areas, it’s important to pay attention to air quality reports especially if you are elderly,… Read more

Quality Captioning and Transcriptions Open Up Clearer Communication for Members of the Entire Pagan Community

When someone who is visually impaired uses a computer, they will either have the images enlarged or they use a reader program. How can a picture, graphic, or other image be read? It can’t unless the web designer is a great coder. There are programs and more tech savy ways to embed images with descriptions that will work with readers. For those of us running organizational websites on a donation budget or blogging, we need to create vivid captions. Instead… Read more

You have to lift the leaves up or you’ll end up with a twenty… Read more

Make Your Mark For Equal Social Services

This morning a neighbor came by. She had a friendly smile and held a plastic bag in front with one hand and held her other hand behind her back. I tried to get a peek at what she was hiding but couldn’t see. I figured it was copies of Watchtower and Awake! since she usually brings them buy once a month. She asked if we would like some cucumbers and banana peppers. I said sure and offered yellow squash we… Read more

Movie Review: A Thousand Words

In the Pagan community, there is a saying that words have power therefore we need to be cautious of what we say. The Universe or a Deity might grant our wish in unexpected ways. The comedy A Thousand Words offers a reminder that people often throw words around meaninglessly. Eddie Murphy plays Jack McCall a self centered, fast talking, literary agent who will say anything to get his way. He even wants to keep his home styled like a bachelor… Read more
