The Pagan and St. Patrick’s Day: Why I Love This Holiday

I proudly celebrate St. Patrick's Day. It's a big part of the culture in which I was raised. Growing up in Dublin, CA, there was an identification with the Irish that fit my own family's narrative. On my mother's side my immediate ancestors came from Ireland and brought their stories [...]

Counting My Blessings: Post-Pantheacon Thoughts

I am sitting here contemplating the many blessings I received as a result of attending yet another PantheaCon. I have been attending for more years than I care to number, and while each of them have given me something, this year was a particularly powerful and healing experience for me. I [...]

Patriarchy is not about men.

So, according to the Facebook Page for the Florida Pagan Gathering, they have dis-invited the Pagan pedophile-apoligists, Gavin & Yvonne Frost. The reason they did so, however, is not because they experienced a sudden bout of common decency, or even because of the many, many complaints they received at the [...]

Magic is real! (But don’t you dare believe in it.)

Witches and warlocks are a diverse bunch. We like to study arcane magical practices, talk to spirits, and cast spells and none of us will bat an eyelash. But it seems that once someone decides to try something new then suddenly the conversation moves from one of exploration and magic [...]

Poem: The Divine Twins

  THE DIVINE TWINS By the starry light above, behold the soaring azure dove. By the darkness far beneath, the scarlet serpent bears his teeth. As each do turn to spy the other brother, enemy, and lover And each to arms now leap and soar To meet on earth in [...]

The event itself was fabulous... the costumes... the music... the food.. the dancing... the puppet show... everything was perfect, and judging from the smiles on everyone's faces it seemed like everyone had [...]

A poem for Beltane…

Beltane As the sun grows hot and bright And the year-wheel slowly turns. The veil thins on Beltane night. And passion’s fire brightly burns. Arise in lust and join the dance ‘round the maypole one by one And as the cup is pierced by lance The holy union has begun. [...]
