In Celebration of the Solstice!

Merry Yule! I am pleased to announce that in celebration of the Winter Solstice I have released my very first book!

The Stars Within the Earth is a collection of my poetry, along with some spells and invocations inspired by my work in the F(a)eri(e) tradition of Witchcraft. I have been wokring on it for awhile, and am very excited to be able to offer it now. Paperback. 106 pages. It is available for $16.95 from my online store.

Future projects include a book on Witchcraft for gay men, and various meditation/trance journey CD's. I'm keeping busy, busy, busy...

I hope that everyone has a wonderful Holiday!

Many Blessings!

Lay my burden down...

I am so happy... so very happy... that I have left some of the email communities that I was a part of.

I've been perplexed... and angry... and hurt... and tired... so very tired... of having to put up with what I see as illness. Ego-driven illness. Perhaps there were more elegant ways that I could have handled myself, but I'm not really sure what they were. And as they say, done is done. Lines have been drawn, and all of that base human nonsense, and you know what? I think it's a good thing. In the long-run I think things will be the better for it. There is a time and a place for anger... when there is injustice, anger assists us. It can be a compass, telling us where to direct our power. In the end it told me to direct mine elsewhere.

So now I find myself able to write again. And work on my art. That is what is most important to me...

So the work on the book is moving right along. I feel it would have been finished by now, had this whole thing not happened, but oh well... I learned a lot in the process.

I laughed, I cried, it became a part of me. Pass the popcorn.

Creative drudgery...

Today I am having some trouble focusing... We took Chas' mom to her Dr.'s appointment today... so I had this event in the middle of my day... not entirely creativly inspiring.

Now I am trying to write, write, write... but you can't force poetry, dammit! ;-)

Speaking of... here's a little one:

Holy Satyr

Holy Satyr!
I invite your lust.
Horned Lord!
There is fire in your touch.
Wild God!
Ravage me and take your pleasure
Between the worlds I call your name:
Pan! Pan! Pan!
Io Evohe! Blessed be.

Moving right along...

Well, I'm new to all of the blog stuff, so we'll just see where this leads.

In the wake of some personal nastiness that I have been going through, I find myself gearing my personal practice toward transmuting emotions like anger and rage into a pure form, and using the raw energy to fuel one of my many art projects. "The Stars within the Earth" is a book of my poetry that I plan on self-publishing within the next month or two. It will be available on my shop, at

I'm also working on a book for gay men in the Craft. So far it looks wildly different than any other book out there, so here's keeping my fingers crossed.

Other than that I am just doing what I can to stay centered.
