Names and identifiers are a pretty big deal. While I’ve heard people high and low say that ‘labels don’t matter’, I can’t agree with that. Sure, breaking down barriers that labels and identifications can establish can be a good thing and create great, exciting, unexpected dialog – but what we call ourselves and what others call us is still important. Read more

I’ve noticed, in my wanderings and peeking in to random Pagan places on and offline, that there is a tendency to stick with one or two deities when it comes to worship and celebration.

When you become aware of a problem, I think it’s better to address and try to fix the problem. Or accept that it isn’t problematic to you, but make sure that other people know about the issue. Read more

It always amazes me what I am capable of forgetting. Details about my gods, small traditions or habits I wanted to cultivate, revelations I once thought unforgettable – most of them fade into the abyss. Read more
