Sex advice

I'm not sure it is love I feel, or if I can feel love at all anymore. But it is friendship for a few close friends, and if some of those are ladies and it involves sex, I am certainly not going to say no. Just can't be exclusive about it, it is not in my nature.

"I think the exclusivity does hurt a lot of relationships, but then I was poly before I knew the meaning of the word. Also think that it is a mistake (and probably the greatest crime that Christianity ever committed) to confuse love and sex and physical contact and intimacy.

That's me from more than thirteen years ago.

The Lady Always Chooses

When I read Margaret Murray and Robert Graves the first time, I never did buy into the matriarchy. There seemed to be another reason that they touched on, but it wasn't matriarchy. Neither were really thinking about balance.

Poetic inspiration gives a glimse. That's a long way from manifesting.

Taproot: Through the Woods

The Woods. Summer weekends meant the family would escape the Phoenix heat. In the fall Dad insisted we come to watch the aspen turn. In the winter we would come to play in the snow. After the stepsibs moved away and it was just teenage me with the folks, we'd still come to enjoy the woods. I will always be the desert guy who Visits The Woods.

My stepdad had passed just weeks short of his birthday. The day after his service the family went to scatter his ashes. Disposing of human remains in a National Park is illegal, so I won't tell you exactly where.

Faith Triad

There's a big truth here. No, make that a Big Truth®. The World we live in now is not the same as the World 2000 plus years ago. Try explaining antiseptics or refridgeration in Latin and see how far you get.

No matter what the inspiration, you still have to come down off the mountain. Living in the Here & Now helps make you human.

So after some thought, I've come up with another triad.

Totems I have known

Strictly speaking, these were’t “totems” in the normal sense. They probably didn’t already entirely exist. The face or persona probably came from me because I thought it was cool. Making lower elementals isn’t really all that hard. Making lower elementals that stick around can be difficult, but I’ve got a flair for it. It made my childhood interesting, some of my “imaginary” friends were really there.

Aside for polyamory - revised

It’s one of the few sexual labels that I bother with. It’s not that I disapprove of labels like gay, lesbian, transgender, and all the others. It’s just hard to see how the label applies to me unless we have sex.

A dangerous pagan

I think that a Greater Pagan Community™ for the sake of the institution is a extradinarily Bad Idea®.

I don’t believe progressive politics should be linked with paganism.

I don’t accept that the personal is political.
