Multiverse and the Magickal Panes of Existence

A few nights ago on How the Universe Works, one of the things they discussed besides the Big Bang and the birth of the Universe is the theory that the Universe is still expanding, and not even a universe at all, but a multi-verse.  I got to thinking about it and realized that this must be where all the planes of existence of magick and the Craft are. The Urkutsk shamans of…

Embracing the Darkness of the Season

“Hello, darkness, my old friend

I’ve come to talk with you again.” The Sound of Silence Simon & Garfunkel 1964-65

This is the darkest part of the year, and the holidays are just humankind’s feeble way of defying it, of laughing in the face of death.Everywhere on this planet during winter, whenever it may be (in the southern hemisphere, the seasons are…

Now That We're In

Now that we’re in, I’m opening boxes.  My plan was to open 5 boxes per day, but that has gotten stymied because all I see are book boxes, and bookcases aren’t set up with shelves yet.  My microwave oven, toaster, and slow cooker all arrived on time on Thursday afternoon.  The people whom Len and I eat lunch with over at the clubhouse are congenial and friendly.  The lunches are a little watery, but edible.  There’s one that sticks out in my mind the most and that was the chicken…

The Great American Belly Dance

Belly dancing is my favorite form of exercise.  I first started back in ‘73 when I took lessons from a teacher named Rhea.  But performing gave me terrible stage fright.  The way I remedied this was to will possession by the Goddess.  It was a process of self-hypnosis.  Later I was to use this technique at the dentist to cancel out pain.  The first step was to walk in a different way, than we were taught as girls; leaning back, hips thrust forward, and walk in such a way as…

Labeling, and Why It's Necessary

The past couple weeks we've been packing, mostly my books.  It's a dual person assembly line.  I take the books from the shelves, and hand them 1 at a time to Stephen, who actually does the packing.  He tapes the box closed, and then I do my thing.  My thing, in this case, is labeling the boxes.  It occurred to me how many people of a certain age resist being "labeled."  They believe that this puts them in a certain box, from which they may never escape.  Well, I have news for these people;…

We've got a place!

We got that place we applied to.  It's a 1 bedroom apartment in South Sacramento.  It's out of the way, but affordable, and we can have Tangey with us.  We both want to thank those of you who did magick to get us a new place.  Now please turn your magickal talents to finding Stephen Abbott a place.  He's getting a place by himself, because he and Len don't get along at all.  They're in truce now, in order to defeat our slumlady, who would just as soon we were homeless.  But it'll be a relief…

Packing Up

There is an old song (grandparents' time for me, great-grandparents' time for most of you young whipper-snappers) It goes partially: "Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag, and smile, smile,

Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag

And smile, smile, smile.

Don't let your joy and laughter hear the snag

Smile boys, that's the style

What's the use of worrying

It never was worth…

We're Being Evicted

Well, the other shoe has dropped.  Yesterday we received a certified letter stating that because they want to renovate the house, (code for tear it all down and build a new house), it will have to be vacated by June 20th.  She CLAIMS that she sent it on April 19th but it was returned.  Well, that is patently a lie, because nobody here saw it before yesterday, the 21st.  I got busy, and filled out 2 applications, one last night, one just a few minutes ago for the SHRA (Sacramento Housing and…

Greatest Writer's Tool

So what is the greatest writing tool a writer can have? It's more basic than your pen and paper, your typewriter, or the wordprocessing program on your personal computer. It is your subconscious, which is the wellspring from where all of your inspiration comes. It is a seething broth in a cauldron of images, concepts, ideas, and beliefs. Knowing this, midway into my 40s, I decided to make friends with my subconscious. A lot of people are afraid of their subconscious, fearing the sometimes…

I'm Ba-a-a-a-a-ck!

I was really downhearted when I found out about the Temple's demise, so imagine my delight when I discovered you'd come back, and are on your own domain.  Much has happened since I last beheld these hallowed halls.  In some ways, it's a lot like Hogwarts, except Hogwart's is for kids and this is for adults.  In November, I won at NaNoWriMo.  In case you don't know, NaNoWriMo is National Novel Writing Month.  They picked November because other than Thanksgiving not much happens during…
