Hekate Einalian Thank you for safe passage You showed your power The ship shook with rage With passion With strength With joy The waves crashed in Just the right places Making the smooth crossing A hectic horror For those with seasickness Even some who had Never suffered previously Clutched their twisting tummies But the cabin

I Can Ask And You Can Say No – Right?!

Jan 18th, 2018 | By

By Imelda Almqvist This week I have been feeling somewhat overwhelmed. The word “somewhat” is only inserted here because after living in the UK for nearly 30 years I think and write in British English (rather than my mother tongue, which is Dutch). British people are masters at the art of understatement: they do not

Sigil Witchery, a review

Jan 17th, 2018 | By

It may seem strange to read a review of a book from one publisher on another publisher’s blog. Moon Books is not the only Pagan publisher out there, thus they cannot possibly publish every book worth reading. Llewellyn has been in the biz a lot longer. Even with several years of tripe and not-so-well-edited books

Tommy's backyard stone circle

Something I enjoy doing is sitting and talking with someone about our own individual paths through life. I have had such awesome, thoughtful, and revealing conversations with friends, acquaintances, and even complete strangers that have been some of my favorite memories. Sitting at a table sharing some food and/or drink, sitting on a stone wall

Walk to Colver

Jan 14th, 2018 | By

“It’s easy to get to Colva,” my neighbour here in Agonda (south Goa) said “just cross the river at the end of the beach at low tide then walk along the shore until you find the path that goes up the hill.” I set off along the beach in my flip flops, took them off
