I swear, the things that come out of my mouth when I’m teaching.  Which then take on a life of their own.  They inspire the people who hear it firsthand from me, within context.  Then probably confuse the hell out of people who hear or see it afterward. (It could be an argument for me to watch what I say.  But I think it’s a better reason for why you should experience me live in person.) At Paganicon this past… Read more

What? Heading off again?  Didn’t I just get home? Yes, it sure feels like it, and don’t tell the cats, but we’re off soon to Minnesota! Last year was my first Paganicon, and I’m really excited to be returning again – with bonus points on top because this year I was invited to be one of the Guests of Honor.  And our band is playing the Equinox Ball!  It’s an excellent, friendly, mid-size indoor Pagan convention in Minneapolis – and I… Read more

Have you ever found yourself asking, “Is this person trolling or are they really that big of an idiot?” It’s become a more frequent question in my life over the last few months.  My eyes have rolled out of my head so many times that I’ve finally cleaned underneath my desk. (To cut down on the amount of inevitable de-cat-hairing I must do once I have retrieved my sightly orbs before returning them to their sockets.) One of the most recent… Read more

The subject of cursing clearly brings up a lot of emotional response, but I often wonder how much critical thinking is involved in that reaction. Read more

What you say? I did two large festivals back to back? PantheaCon AND ConVocation?  Why yes, yes I did. And I survived! How? Why! In recent years, in an effort to expand my audience and connections, I have been adding what I call “risk” events to my travel schedule.  The risk refers to spending money to possibly make money and grow my network. As an independent artist married to an independent musician, there’s often not a lot of financial cushion or… Read more

I’m home! And I have about a dozen blog posts all angling to get out of my brain at the same time.  I figured the safest thing to do is to release them chronologically.  So first up is PantheaCon! This was my 4th consecutive P-Con – I had previously attended from 2002-2006 when I still lived in the Bay Area, and presented 2003-2005 (that I can remember).  Each year, I try to sculpt my experience so it’s less stressful, that… Read more

I’ll be doing a PantheaCon write-up as soon as I can – but essentially I just got home late yesterday evening and I turn around and fly out at the crack(arse) of dawn Thursday morning for Detroit.   Convocation looks like it will be an absolute vacation compared to the insane schedule I ran at P-Con. It’s my first time going to Convocation, and I’m looking forward to it. I’ve got a large set-up in the Art Show, so that… Read more

And so it begins… I am getting ready to head down to PantheaCon in San Jose, CA – where I will be vending, performing, presenting – and hopefully getting some additional fun socializing in! So if you too are also heading to PantheaCon and you’d like to come by and say hi, here’s where I’ll be: VENDING: Most of the time from Friday through Monday, I’ll be chained down I can be found at my booth, Owlkeyme Arts – which… Read more

When asked “what is cursing?” most people will reply with one of the two following answers: 1) The use of vulgar or impolite language. 2) The throwing off of “negative” energy and/or the use of sympathetic magick to manipulate, particularly in the form of a poppet, witch bottle, or similar system.  Under the right circumstances, I can say I’m a fan of both.  But in actual practice, I tend to be somewhere in between – what I call “the elegant curse.” The… Read more
