A preview of what I’m working on for March

Next month I will be posting a new series of hymns to a deity that I wrote in January, while writing a set for another deity as a daily offering.

In addition, as I resume devotion to a particular set of deities in March, I plan to repost hymns I wrote for their monthly observances that I wrote several years ago and posted to my previous blog.

I would like to finish a couple of stories about the Forest God that have been in progress since late last year. I can’t promise I’ll finish them next month, but I’d like to.

I’ve been pondering a series of posts on my experience of religion and spiritual searching over the years. Anybody interested in reading that?

I’ve also been reading a couple of really good books that I’d like to review, among them Cassandra Snow’s Queering the Tarot.

If you’d like to support my work as a writer, how about buying me a cuppa? Thanks for reading.

POEM: For Pixie

All the world’s a stage, and all the Tarot merely scenery,
a painted backdrop for an amateur display.
All the world’s a stage, and all our comedies and dramas
re-enactment of the myths, rehearsal of a few enduring plots.
All the world’s a journey, and Pixie’s Fool goes tripping through it,
feet light as feathers, eyes raised to the sky.
Only the Fool’s dog knows what’s in that bag of tricks,
the wanderer’s bindlestaff over one shoulder,
its humble length an axis round which all the worlds revolve.

(For Pamela Colman Smith, Pixie to her friends, born on this date in 1878, illustrator of the Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot)
