Happy Thanksgiving!

I know it's not always seen as politically correct to celebrate this somewhat problematic holiday, but this year I finally feel I've got some things to be thankful for. In honor of the fact that I've been revamping my diet to be more heavily plant-based, I bring you an antique sacrificial vegetable man:

Hotep Netjer em shabu en imenet her iabyt!

(May the Gods be satisfied with the repast to the right and to the left!)

Burning Questions

I've long since learned that ignoring what is because of what might potentially be is a fool's game; so why do it, in any arena?

The worst, the nastiest, the most deeply damaged and damaging people I've known, and the ones who have wreaked the most havoc in my life, have been people I've met through the auspices of neo-paganism; so why meet or seek the companionship of such people?*

Is that another Bones lesson I'm supposed to be getting: the definition of insanity is doing the same things over and over and expecting a different result? Granted, Bones was not the first place I ever heard that statement, but it seems a suspiciously well-timed reiteration of it. But then, as Mulder once said, "if coincidences are merely coincidental, then why do they seem so contrived?"

(*This in no way refers to my Kemetic or FOI associations, which have been almost universally pleasant and positive.)

November 17th

Today is the anniversary of my taking my first college degree (1989) and my first Wiccan degree (1994). Neither of them are doing me any good at this point in my life. :D
