Thoughts and stories shared enrich everybody.
Patience is not usually one of my virtues, but I’m working on it. As I age, life seems simpler taking each day “One at a time” and accepting “What is.” That was not true when I was younger, ambitious, and more impatient than I am now. I work hard and probably will have to wellContinue reading “Waiting”
The events of the past two days in Washingon DC have been a shock to many Americans and point to the “Great Divide” in the way Americans think about things. I have friends on Facebook who fit the term “conspiracy theorists”, and I do not relate to the fervency of their beliefs. Meanwhile they areContinue reading “It’s Always A Choice”
I cannot map any resolutions for myself this year except the usual – lose weight, get healthier, become a kinder better version of myself. And that is just the usual tripe. I think the real challenge and the true resolution coming out of 2020 – that year of hindsight in which so much of theContinue reading “So, it’s 2021!”
Yesterday I was rereading a post by Galina Krasskova on the problems Polytheists face in Interfaith communities (link here). Her article inspired a deep feeling in me that I shall try to address here, both on the issue of “Oneness,” and on the issue of the nature of God. Specific to that is my observation that many people create God in their own image.
Some days, like yesterday, it is hard for me to dig up any ambition. Christmas break is a period of rest for me any way, from my day job of school bus driving. But I have individual plans that I would like to utilize my time for and when I have a day that demands rest, those things don’t get done.

It’s hard to describe, and in the past I’ve rushed to fill it up with something new. I’m not rushing. I’m using this unfamiliarity to do my best to get confident with uncertainty.
In some ways it really does not matter what I write about. What people write about. What is important is what we are impassioned about, because that is the topic we will give our best time and energy to. I love talking to people about their passions and interests, because it is there that I get to the meat of what makes them who they are.
It was 1988 and I was spending a summer day in the classroom of Ann Kelly, who was teaching us something about the Enneagram that day. (Ann Kelly had been a student of Dr. Nylund, as Sally Ann McLain). She drew a figure on the chalk board and said that it was another version of the Enneagram. At the time, I attributed the interlacing figure of three triangles to the Egyptian pyramids, because that was my interest, but after the Goddesses of the Nitty Gritty – the Norns and Hela – came calling in 2013, and I began learning all I could about things Norse, I learned of this mysterious figure called the Valknut.
