Hello dear Pagans!
So were are in the first throes of a New Year with a lot of changes coming down the pike. We are moving towards Imbolc (and Imbolc Poetry Blogging…YAY!!) and I am contemplating the core of Imbolc just as I did for Yule a few weeks ago.
I have decided to honor the new year, and look into new things and ideas as a lead in to Imbolctide.
2009 c.e. ( or e.v. for those Thelemites out there) has proven to be a time of great changing tides in the U.S. with a new and historic Presidency about to begin.
Nor are the times and tide of change limited to the National level, our own community has seen a burst of creativity and discussion in the wake of The Wild Hunt’s recent article and recent update about the end of the fine Pagan podcast Deos Shadow.
The amazing conversations that emerged in the comments section have spurred a lot of interesting posts and a lot of discussion across the Pagan blogasphere.
Inspired by these conversation I have started a new project and am trying to reinvigorate an old one…
The Pagan Community Builders list is a project I started a couple of years ago.. and then my daily life took several complicated turns… I entered school for my A.S. degree in Hospitality and Restaurant Management. I started working a new job at a theme park, and my daily life became a mad rush of days… that eventually led me to start this blog… which led me to the Wild Hunt which led me to reinvigorate the Pagan Community Builders List.
(strange how life cycles around on us isn’t it?!)
The new project is The Pagan Collegium, where I am trying to get folks interested in polite and intelligent conversations about some of the academic topics related to modern Paganism to get together and discuss things… please check it out!
As I mentioned, I have decided to honor the new year, and look into new things and ideas as a lead in to Imbolctide.
This will be a series of posts highlighting sites and links that I find amusing or inspiring when viewed through the lens of my identity and world-view as a Witch and Pagan. I hope you will join me in exploring the spirit of change and honoring 2009!
