Sometimes I even did it deliberately. A little disruption now can prevent disaster later.

NeoNote — Taking a stand against politics in paganism

The armband caught my eye.

Thinking by blogging
This last week I've been polishing the behind the scenes stuff on this blog. That includes cleaning up the formatting for my quotes & thinkums. There's a goof in 2017 that's throwing things off, but I will find and fix it. I've been reading my old stuff. I've been cross referencing. Most of it isn't obvious.

Mom isn't doing so well. She forgets things. She's having a harder time moving around. We'll see.

One of my biggest frustrations is sex. One companion passed and the other moved. I try to avoid casual sex these days and I don't do the pickup scene at all. The younger women aren't interested in an older guy, especially the kind that makes them think. The older available ladies, well, many are into the victimhood thing. Some of the others want a bad boy. When they find out I am pagan, they think danger and blood and risk. Usually that's not me. I used to have sex six or seven times a week and now it's once or twice on a good week. I'm horny in an age of #MeToo and regret equalling rape accusations. I'm not sure how to fix that.

Truth is winning in a small way. I've been finding people that I agree with online. Of course it will never be a massive or even an impressive number, but there's hope for Isaiah's Job yet. I serve veritas, that has it's own rewards. Widespread recognition for my, um, obvious insights and grand wisdom is not one of them. I'm pretty good, but it won't bring fame and money. Still, it's nice to stumble across some like minded folk here and there. Wisdom is where you find it.

It dawned on me that I can save time by copy-pasting the source code from the quotes & thinkums blog entries in my comments. I'll have to eliminate the <div class="offset"> and the following </div>, but the rest shows up in Disqus just fine. Not with all the bells and whistles, true, but with enough to show it's a blockquote. I sill may have to toss in some <em> and </em>, but it works.

Time for a shower. Then I'll greet the sunrise while sharing breakfast with my raven friend. Then over to check on Mom.

NeoNote — Not about paganism

Someone is pulling your strings. You'd be a fool to accept that.


Most mornings

Fake clergy can screw people up big time.

I saw a horse "broke" once. It was time consuming. It was brutal. That was enough to convince me it was wrong.

NeoNotes — Ravens today

Um, how big are your cats?

Ravens in Northern AZ can get very big. I've seen them face down large cats and even coyotes.

ETA: More information here. And What's the difference between a crow and a raven?

I'd change the law so I could legally pick up feathers that ravens shed.

Ravens are amazing birds aren't they?

There's a lot of them in Northern Arizona, especially in the small towns and around the canyons. Visitors call them big crows but they are definitely ravens. It's not unusual to see feathers on the ground, although they disappear quickly. It is rare though, I hardly ever see it more than two or three times a year.

I tell you this merely as a point of information. I'm sure you're a law abiding citizen.

In the summer I sometimes share my breakfast with a local raven. The rest of the year (like today) I'll go outside around sunrise with a hot drink and something to nibble. That's usually for him.
NeoNotes are the selected comments that I made on other boards, in email, or in response to articles where I could not respond directly.
