I’ve just spent the last two hours crying…

Later today, or at this point, fuck it, maybe even tomorrow, maybe I'll take all day today (it is 2:30am after all) to process what just happened in my country and try to decide what to do next... ... at some time later, I will begin to move forward. Not on, but forward. I already… Continue reading I’ve just spent the last two hours crying…

A Belated Blessed Samhain to you all.

Unfortunately, I did not perform the Samhain ritual I so wanted to do. Between drama related to a group project for one of my classes, and the start of NaNoWriMo, ritual slipped away and didn't happen. I'm disappointed, both that it didn't happen, and in myself for letting it become the least important thing in… Continue reading A Belated Blessed Samhain to you all.

Introducing: Capricious Symbols by S. Lynn Hunt

I did this thing a week or so ago, and it just now occurred to me that I could reblog it here. With the gift-giving holiday season approaching, consider purchasing Capricious Symbols for the avid reader on your gift list.

S. Lynn Hunt

I finally decided to put together a short anthology of a few short stories. I don’t have many right now (but I do have a virtual file cabinet of story ideas on my computer!), so I enhanced the anthology with a three chapter sneak-peek at Strange Magic 1: In Touch With Death.

capricioussymbolsCapricious Symbols may be purchased at Lulu.com as a paperback here at this link, or in ePub at this link.

It is also currently available in the Apple iBookstore, and for Barnes and Noble NOOK.

It will be available for Amazon Kindle and Kobo some time in the next week to three weeks, depending on the service. Keeping checking your favorite to see if it’s available!

(Update: It’s now available at both Kobo and Amazon Kindle!)

I hope some of you decide to purchase; I am a college student, and can use all…

Chaos Paganism’s Calendar: Samhain for a Modern Pagan

Samhain is next month, and I'm excited! It's my favorite holiday, both secularly and spiritually. I absolutely intend to wear a costume, even if only a simple one, that Monday evening to class! Traditionally--as much as anything can be traditional in such a young spiritual community--Samhain has a strong connection to the Ancestors and Death,… Continue reading Chaos Paganism’s Calendar: Samhain for a Modern Pagan

A Celestine by Any Other Name…

I wrote a while back about magical names and my relationship (or lack thereof) with them. Since then, I've changed my name (and thus the url for this blog) yet again. Thankfully, I don't see myself changing it again any time soon. Of course, I didn't expect to do so when I first started using… Continue reading A Celestine by Any Other Name…

Because I could not stop for Death–

He kindly stopped for me –  The Carriage held but just Ourselves –  And Immortality. --Emily Dickinson So a thing happened the other day that I was not expecting, and it put me off guard, and it seemed one of those out there WOO things that anti-theists and others use to put down Paganism. Looking back, though,… Continue reading Because I could not stop for Death–

The Holy Days of One Modern Pagan

Part of trying to distinguish my path from Wicca--which is important to me not because I hate Wicca or Wiccans, but simply because I'm not Wiccan and feel my path should reflect this--is figuring out a set of holidays that actually celebrate things I, as a modern Pagan, find important and even holy. Also, that… Continue reading The Holy Days of One Modern Pagan
