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. I have a lot on my plate and feel like I'm slipping behind even when I'm cranking out all kinds of work in like … Continue reading Onward we charge, into the sun

All the Ghosts, All the Saints, All the Souls

Welcome to the Dark Side - the Dark Side of the Year. That's why Samhain (aka HALLOWEEN, fam) was such a big deal for the Celts. It's interesting - what I typically think of as "the middle holidays" in the Wheel of the Year, the ones that fall between the solstices and equinoxes, were actually the main … Continue reading All the Ghosts, All the Saints, All the Souls

HARVEST TIME: What Have I Grown?

Harvest time, yet again. In terms of the year's cycle, we may as well call it The Moment of Truth. Some might go so far as to say "Judgment Day," but let's not let our sense of drama completely get away from us. In any case, it's kind of a BFD - now we see the … Continue reading HARVEST TIME: What Have I Grown?

The truth, as ever, is more complicated. My baiting indulgence and cruel cursing is rooted in a couple of factors.

It’s spring already – act accordingly

The Earth is a great place to exist. It'd be a shame to have to leave it. Overhead, up in the stars, the video plays out And anyone with the software to open the file can view the tale: The Great Mother gave birth to her Son several weeks ago. These weeks, up and down, … Continue reading It’s spring already – act accordingly

Secrets of a harvest moon

Four AM, damn near the navel of the sacred-of-ages forests of southern New Hampshire. The brilliant silvery reign of the Harvest Moon continues yet unabated, the lateness of the year's own hour betrayed by the relative absence of any of the harbinger's of dawn. The fake aurora borealis, however, those orangey slivers above Nashua and … Continue reading Secrets of a harvest moon

Tale of a Lost Worker, Part VI

Turns out, along the way, I seem to have written a novel. You'd Guess From Their Cries: One Heretic's Quest for Salvation is a tale told in three parts, and in gratitude and love I'm posting the second of those parts, "Tale of a Lost Worker," in its entirety, as a serial. This is the mind-blowing conclusion … Continue reading Tale of a Lost Worker, Part VI
