So, I really had no intention of going silent for July. Or August for that matter. (Not that I don’t understand and respect the reasoning of those who did.)
I just sorta stopped being interested in blogging for awhile.
I’d like to think I was “doing stuff” instead of “writing about doing stuff,” and that was definitely part of it. To be perfectly honest though, it’s not like I was so busy with devotional practice and art I couldn’t slip a post in here and there. I just didn’t have much to say I guess.
I decided to quit doing the Pagan Blog Project because, while I love it and enjoy seeing the posts everyone comes up with, I found myself feeling pressured to write just for the sake of having written. (Also, when you’re in the middle of a ritual and find yourself thinking about just how you’ll word the description of the experience, it’s probably time to take a break from the internets…)
I’ve set up an altar to my ancestors and beloved dead. At this point, I’ve yet to really begin regular offerings, but it’s good to have the constant reminder that they’re there. I’ve found myself talking to them more often as a result, which has got to be a good thing.
Continuing my daily prayers and offerings.
I’ve also been doing art, devotional and otherwise. I’m quite proud of the mask I made for Dionysos.
Also been doing regular life things like holding down a job and taking care of a sick puppy.
Still, I like having the blogs. I’m going to try to find a happy medium between never posting and never doing anything else because I’m focused on writing about it.
