Farewell Dave

Dave Grega, one of the hosts of the Pagan Centered Podcast, died Monday night. It’s come as a big shock to the people who knew him. He was only 27, and had a mischievous sense of humor, so I wasn’t the only person who wondered at first if it was a prank. Dave was a [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?

Isaac Bonewits, Hail and Farewell!

This morning Pagan elder Isaac Bonewits crossed over to the Summerlands. I never really knew Isaac but like many modern Pagans I certainly felt his influence. There is a lovely eulogy for Isaac on The Wild Hunt this morning that is far more eloquent than I am capable of today. Here is also a video [Read More…]
