I can tell because I’m spending more time with a shovel and less with a keyboard. Read here for last year’s post whining about having no time for writing. This year’s no better, but I’m getting to the apology post sooner : ). The good news is that the next Cthulhu Occultism post is ripening soon, and we’re about to begin some juicy magical work here that will generate some bloggery.
My last few weeks included, and will include:
• Trillium Gathering – an ADF joint in Virginia, this year well-attended and high-energy.
• Spring clean-up pre-party, we re-paved the porch, started painting, busted wood.
• Beltaine, with Stone Creed Grove, our twenty-year-plus local tradition.
• May Party coming up this weekend, and the coming-out for the new barn (see below).
• Wellspring Gathering our big do on Memorial Day.
The other good news is that L’s school-year is done the week after that and a week of collapse might be possible before prepping for June events. Busy season indeed!
In Other News
• The Leabhar Mor offer is done. I sold enough to make me happy with the project, and few enough that those who bought it have a pretty rare item. Someversion may appear again in the future, but not that specific item.
• The next thing is a collection of my essays and posts concerning Pagan theology. I’ve nearly finished polishing the typeset, and it should be out before midsummer. Now to think of a title…
• I was pleased to have one of my books well-reviewed by my old buddy Bro Moloch, over at his blog.
•The big news around here has been the rebuilding of our barn and fellowship space. Our little farm, which we call Tredara, has been the site of Pagan gatherings in this area for nearly thirty years. Last year we began rebuilding the ancient shack of a barn that had served us well. I posted some process pics here and promised patient readers a follow-up. Since I’m again asking for your patience, I’ll post a few ‘after’ shots.
As always, thanks for reading.
