What I am reading now

This isn't a review because I am only 1/3 of the way through the book.  I am reading it with a growing sense of glee that such a book exists (and that I didn't have to attempt to write it!) and that Ms. Williams is the author.  (Before they became generally moribund, I had the pleasure of "conversing" with her, courtesy of Yahoo Groups.  I've also found one of her previous books "Ecstatic Ritual, Practical Sex Magic," to be well-written and useful.)

And now, back to happy reading...

Seemed like a good idea at the time...

I am a contrary human being.  All over the world, people are sharing via their computers and the internet.  Political movements are given umph via Twitter and Facebook.  Blogs are being written and posted and auto-published on multiple platforms.  Personal "brands" are being burnished in the ether that is modern communication.  And I have less and less desire to participate.

For those of you might notice these sorts of things, I've removed the Pagan Blog Project widget.  I am just not keeping up with the project.  I thought it would give me the inspiration and the push to write more often, but it has not.  All it has done for me is given me something to do that doesn't get done and a deadline to be surprised by.  And I've been surprised by it every week.  So I've taken the widget off and will not berate myself for not participating.

I am spending more time interacting with actual humans, no keyboard interface needed.  I find that highly satisfying, both for the interaction and because I did do a bit of magic to help bring that about.  And I am always up for meeting new people, especially those of you who would only be new to me in the fleshly sense.  If you want to stop by, I'll put up a pot of tea.
