I’m Not Dead Yet (but I did lose a week)

Yeah, it's Friday afternoon and up til now I haven't posted anything in a full week - and the last thing I posted may have seemed a little ominous. Good news, everyone (well, hopefully, you think it's good news) - I am still here on Earth! I find this fact absolutely glorious. But then...if I'm … Continue reading I’m Not Dead Yet (but I did lose a week)

Onward we charge, into the sun

Happy May Day slash Beltane to all of you blessed pilgrims out there! I have started writing this three times now. The first time, I was feeling a lot of anxiety.

You can take your pumpkin spice lattes and….

All you fall-lovers can go to hell. Happy Autumnal Equinox, you smug bastards. All right, all right, enough of that. I'm baiting you and indulging myself - on purpose, of course.

For one, I've noticed a … Continue reading You can take your pumpkin spice lattes and….

Don’t give yourself a heart attack: A meditation

Careening in the background, uncontrollably and at a breakneck, toward the mid-autumnal new moon - and its priestess-goddess and all she and it might portend - the question of the hour is whether the dawn is the most personal or the most impersonal of all the phenomena of wonder to which we are regularly and often … Continue reading Don’t give yourself a heart attack: A meditation

The Wizard’s Midsummer’s Night Monadnock Adventure: Part 2 (A Photo Journey)

Yesterday, when we left off, our heroes (myself included) were scaling Monadnock's final stretch, that place mostly above the artificial treeline where you think you're there already but there's at least a half hour to go and you're very, very tired and kind of staggering along. That's how the experience is for me, anyway. The … Continue reading The Wizard’s Midsummer’s Night Monadnock Adventure: Part 2 (A Photo Journey)

As is only fitting for 2013's Day of Longest Light, and in keeping with my general tendencies toward wildness and not thinking things through, on the evening of June 21, I set out to climb my beloved mountain. This is a chronicle of that fateful and life-changing trek into the heights of divine communion and … Continue reading The Wizard’s Midsummer’s Night Monadnock Adventure: Part 1 (A Photo Journey)

Walk Upon the Earth: A Brand New Meditation for Unity Tuesday

Today, in the slightly mischievous spirit of Unity Tuesday, let's try a crazy exercise. We never do this kind of thing, especially not in the middle of the day. The thing is, it's just so easy in the course of any given day (whether it's Unity Tuesday or not) to fail to recognize the true … Continue reading Walk Upon the Earth: A Brand New Meditation for Unity Tuesday
