After several weeks of silence, some of my favorite magical bloggers are spewing forth brilliance again. Combined with my own experiments, this is getting me thinking about a lot. In the coming weeks, then, you can expect lots of posts with links which will be increasingly out-of-date, as I don’t generally like to post more than once a day and I often like to spend several days thinking about big things. (Today’s blog-spoo of meta-posts not withstanding.)
A few links you should read and which I will come back to:
Gordon at Rune Soup talks about his magical strategies and experiences in ways that I think every newbie – and quite a few more experienced magicians – need to hear. He also has some really good things to say on the pursuit of enlightenment. He also directed me to a very shiny new blog AND a link to an older post of his that will be the source of many thinky-thoughts: in short, he attempts to establish a line between ethical syncretism and cultural appropriation. It seems solid to me, but I wonder what Adrienne K. – or another professional border guard of that distinction – would think of it?
Also in the next several days, I’m going to switch from the traditional LBRP to a Neo-Pagan variant, and be reporting how that goes along with my first experiments with holy water.
