Today is the anniversary of my oaths and vows to Loki. I took the day off with the intention of doing something with intent and working on the book, but as usual, my body had other ideas. But Loki still came, and this day is still meaningful. I haven't been dedicated to him for long, … Continue reading 9/9
ECT 2020 may be a virtual event this year on account of, well, 2020, but that doesn't mean that fuckery isn't afoot. Tonight was the Loki blót, performed with 30-odd people via Zoom. It was awesome, and E did a wonderful job as always leading the blót (and the Loki vé is gorgeous), but of … Continue reading There Was an Incident
This veers away from the usual content I share, but this story is too good to not tell. It's not quite as astronomically impossible as The Story of ECT 2018, but still pretty improbable and mind-blowing. And hey, I've been naming my cars after Loki's children for almost 20 years, so there's your Loki-connection to … Continue reading Saga of the Jetta GLI
Last month, I teased a bit about a project I had in the works. And then I forgot to update about it. Because I'm damn awesome like that. Now I get to unveil my latest endeavor and maybe tease at yet another thing I've been waiting on. Or maybe not. Tricksters. . . who can … Continue reading A Fox Among Ravens
I don't dislike Fenrir. I have a massive soft spot for him, I really do. He's not an inherently evil being, and his fury is very much understandable. I get it. But that doesn't mean I condone what comes of that fury.
For some inexplicable reason, there's been a noticeable uptick lately in debates around "reclaiming" the swastika. WHY?! It's frustrating enough to see arguments in favor of trying to erase the stigma and bring it back into the fold, but it's absolutely enraging to see people respond to the "let it go" statements with arrogant "well … Continue reading Some Things Aren’t Worth Saving
Oy, I did not intend to have such a long hiatus. I'm mostly recovered from Covid-19 now, but the radio silence has been more of a "I have lots of nonsense I'm working on" thing and less of a "PLAGUE!" thing (though the fatigue issues I've dealt with since my appendix issues have definitely been … Continue reading Lea 1, Plague 0
Our favorite twerp has been busy these days, needless to say. He relishes in the fury of a world finally addressing fundamental problems in society and fighting for the change that's so desperately needed and so shamefully overdue. This is his time: World Breaker, Chaos Maker, Master of Mischief and Mayhem. His bride, too, is … Continue reading Support BLM, Support the Gods, and Take Care of Yourselves
One of the (many) constant refrains in this blog is "listen and pay attention." It's the advice I offer when people ask how to develop the lines of communication with the gods, it's what I said in my last post about learning how to honor the land spirits, and now it's something I'm imploring for … Continue reading I’m Listening
This post is long overdue as it's a requested topic from my awesome friend P. She asked me to talk about the landvættir/honoring land wights quite some time ago, but as I've admitted before, they've never been a huge part of my practice because I don't notice or sense/feel them the way I do the … Continue reading Landvættir, Nisser, and Ghosts . . . Oh My!
