Does Being An Urban Pagan Make More Sense?

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law. Higgs boson. Andy Griffith. TomKat. Independence Day. Lots of appropriate topics today. I was discussing the idea that environmentalism puts just as much of a target on the back of Pagans as Witchcraft does, and that the idea that if we relabel what we [Read More…]

Fitting Tributes: The Passing of Lord Athanor

Pagans having two names can have some amusing consequences. How often do you tend to know someone’s mundane name or magical name, but not both? You know who Nightfire is but swear you’ve never met Michael, not knowing they are the same person. I recently had an experience like that. Lord Athanor is one of [Read More…]

Quickie: Wicker Tree Party in ATL?

So if I could convince the Atlanta Midtown Art Cinema to get The Wicker Tree, how many of my local peeps would come out to see it? Because the window of opportunity to see it on the big screen is tiny, and we could all go to Park Tavern afterwards and argue about how good/bad [Read More…]

Reflecting on the Life of Steve Collins/Lord Senthor

I think the saddest thing about writing for the Pagan community is writing about elders who have passed that I never had the chance to meet.

The Magic of Snow in the South (aka Hothlanta)

Georgia, as well as 48 other states, has been hit by what has been affectionately termed Snowpocalypse 2011. As our friends in Florida enjoy balmy climes, people in downtown Atlanta (aka Hothlanta) have ice skated on Peachtree Street and watched all those tv shows they’ve been meaning to catch up on.

The Unexpected Blessings of Lady Sintana

I never met Lady Sintana, but I firmly believe she is the reason I am a Witch today. It’s kind of a long story, so bear with me. Lady Sintana was a very public Witch, one of the few well-known public Witches who were not authors. She appeared fairly regularly in the Atlanta Journal Constitution. [Read More…]
