It is with great sorrow that I have heard of the passing of Blv. Olivia Robertson. I had the great pleasure to meet with Lady Olivia on many occasions over the years, and to interview her several times in radio and video format. She was surely among the most unforgettable people I have ever known.
Olivia Robertson was the…
As regular readers know, pretty much every month I get some book or another from the LibraryThing.com “Early Reviewer” program, and, generally speaking, I'm usually content to deal with whatever the “Almighty Algorithm” doles out to me from the books I've requested. However, a…Continue

I actually “won” won this book … back in February author Dave Kerpen was the featured speaker at the Big Frontier meeting, and there was a contest for the most “live Tweeting” from it. Since I tend to be a clicky-clicky fool at these things, I ended up winning, and getting…Continue

As you likely know, I have been a strong supporter of The Common Book of Wicca and Witchcraft project (http://www.WitchLibrary.com). Monday, November 11 is the final day in the indiegogo campaign to fund this project. Obviously the better the indiegogo…

Needless to say, this is another of those books … something picked up to fill a gap in an on-line order between what I have in the cart and where free shipping kicks in, and simultaneously filling a gap in my otherwise rather expansive liberal arts education. While I'm a bit…Continue

This is another book that I got via the LibraryThing.com “Early Reviewers” program. If you're not familiar with the LTER, it allows site members to put in requests for review copies from a list of a hundred or so books being offered by publishers that month. Each book has a…Continue

I INPRISON MY DARKSIDE
I MISTAKENLY FLY
SHOWING NO PRIDE
PASS INTO THE HERE AND NOW
SHED A TEAR
YET SELDOMELY FROWN
FULL OF FEARS
SLASH INO IMMORTALITY
FOR ONLY BUT A MOMENT
PAST LIVES BECOME REALITY
SCREAM SHOUT AND VENT
DREMS BRING YOU TO THE DAWN
SLEEP MAKES YOU FEEL FARGONE
NOHERE AND NOW
NO TRUTHE IN MY REALITIES.

This is another of those fascinating volumes that found its way into my library due to the serendipity of the dollar store book section. As is often the case with my “dollar store finds”, this was unlikely to have been something that I would have picked up “at retail”, but…Continue

As you may know, I am a strong supporter of the Common Book of Wicca and Witchcraft project. The idea of this project is to create a book of magic, ceremony and theological commentary that will be in the public domain, and which can be distributed far and wide. I hope that you will join me in supporting this…

I am a neophyte, less than a month.
I'd like to believe I am quite an informed Catholic,
even thought of entering priesthood many times.
While most would follow rituals like mindless drones, I would read, ask and reflect on the why rather than the how. Sadly though, the most part of Christianity's faithful or any religion for that matter are either ill informed or just plain ignorant. Religious fanaticism without a considerable educational level, emotional, spiritual and…Continue
Unbelievable, All I want is a divorce, and my soon to be ex-husband wants to start lies saying that I threatened (sp) him.. Really.. really.. I have the evidence to prove adultrey and you want to make me look bad..
I have not been able to find inner peace since he servered me with the papers last week, and I have another week to go until I get to speak my side of the story and present the evidence to counter everything he is doing..
Ok now this is what is hard, I have no been…Continue

Well, I started this path a while ago, but life got in the way and it fell to the wayside. I am now going to try to do my year and a day and do as much training as I can. Then, once I understand the Wiccan path and am comfortable, I will do a self dedication. I would love it if I could find like-minded people in my area here, but I have no idea how to go about it. If you THINK a person may be a wiccan... how do you find out? Just come right out and introduce yourself and ask them? Seems kind…Continue

To all of Witchschool,
My aunt in law, whom is also one of the speakers on the Pagan Priestess show, Kazan Clark, is very sick. She is being transported by ambulance to UAMS in Little Rock, Arkansas.
The lower part of her heart is not transferring blood as fast as the top part and they are afraid that her heart is going to stop. Her major arteries are damaged in the lower part of the heart and she grew minor blood vessels to compensate but it's not doing the job. They are…Continue
Once upon a time I lived in a house with a hexagonal storm room in the wilds of Central Florida. I turned it into something of a home temple, an entire room to dedicate to my craft. Taking advantage of such a prized commodity, I had three places of focus – you could…Continue
