I'm currently going through an emotionally painful time in my life, which includes plenty of tears, and I'm not ashamed or afraid to admit that. It has got me thinking about a lot more about my future, my place in this universe, and not only what my spiritual path means to me, but where it's headed. I foresee a lot of change this year in my life, and it scares me.

This post represents a detour from the (ir)regular stuff I write because I've just very recently come upon the startling realization that I really don't want to write very much for this blog. For the past couple of years I've taken a weekly challenge to produce content for your enjoyment and dare I say it, your edification.

From time to time, I'm sure I'll write something, but it won't be nearly as formulaic or industrial. My goals and motivations for what is here now have ended up being very much not at all what I want. As it turns out, the industry which so much of Paganism and magick has become is not for me...or more to the point, I'm not for it.
Thanks for being a part of this journey thus far, you're welcome to see where the winding path takes me next.
