campfire, cooking

This has been an exciting week!

Wow! What an exciting week! A couple interviews have been done to help promote the book, including the one on Pagans Tonight which is now archived. That was scary for me at first, as I'm used to being the middle man on interviews instead of being the one talked to, but they're a lot of fun! Also, quite a few bookstores are picking up copies for sale, so that's just awesome. :)

I've been making lots of new friends in this venture (real friends, not just online acquaintances), so I definitely have my Muse to thank for that. If She hadn't been so insistent in telling me I could do this, I really would have been content with just posting little tidbits here and there as they came to me. I love people of all kinds, especially the little ones (not like that! Jeez!), and there simply is no better way to get to know people than by face to face interaction. And, you really get to know how they tick when you're working with them - be it with just the mundane stuff or via religious workings. So what better way than to combine the two? :)

But the best thing is, which has been my goal all along, is that more newcomers are really gigged on doing this temporary community building thing and are reserving part of their vacation time off work to do so. Sometimes, getting Pagans of all colors to get together is akin to herding cats, which is no easy task by any stretch. So I feel so friggin honored and yes, stoked as the kids say, to be having a small part in that.

So yeah, I really do appreciate all the love and support I've been getting on this. Thank you! I try not to use the word "project", because that seems too... I don't know... general? Demeaning, even? It's definitely a labor of love, and I'm glad to see it's been appreciated. And what's more, it's opened me up to a whole slew of new ideas and has broadened my spirituality in my mundane day to day. It amazes me how so much can be inter-connected.
