"Most people who want to be taken seriously would tell you that there are no unbroken religious traditions that survive from ancient times.  That isn’t actually true.   They are just looking in the wrong place."

I lost part of my voice to other people's stupidity.  I want it back.

I recognize that their website is full of disclaimers about how they only speak for themselves, and yet the ringing pomposity of “American Council of Witches” says otherwise. If you choose to take on a name like that when you don’t have the community backing to pull it off, then you are going to get crushed like the Fallen Caryatid. I confess to not having much sympathy for you in that case; if you’re as witch as all that, you should know better. Naming is an act of magic. Magic sometimes bites you on the behind. Learn from it, grow, and move on.

"If you want to honor veterans, listen to their stories…especially the ones that make you uncomfortable. Don’t make them carry that burden as well. Contribute to charities that make a real difference in their lives, and pay attention when politicians vote to take away their benefits. Talk less, do more, listen more."

I’ve talked about this before…the confluence of Southern culture and its love of the land with the reverence for place and the land among modern Pagans.  It’s a connecting theme in two publications I have coming out.

"What does God need with a spaceship?"
Dollar enabled an old-school sales compliance technique practiced by everyone who's worked a phone during an NPR membership drive. The good reverend can come back with a more modest request and cite the struggle of fundraising in a faithless world. His people will fall for it. And by laughing at Dollar, we're helping him.

Story
Tagline
This is what happens when you turn a woman like me loose on the Internet.
Introduction
I grew up in north Georgia, among the ridges and valleys of the lazy tail end of the Appalachians. My father was a civil engineer and my mother was a high school English teacher.  My family is full of educators, storytellers, and eccentrics, and I am no exception to any of it.
