Back At Keyboard

notes Jan 22, 2018

Hi there. Been a while. My server, which is maintained by my wife, got royally messed up, and the whole thing was down for about ten months. Sorry to anybody who missed me, though I don't expect many noticed.

Update on my life:

  • I graduated school with a certificate in Database Administration and Development, and am currently job hunting.

  • I continue to work on my death rites book for the Starry Bull tradition, now titled The Book of the Downward Labyrinth.

  • When I finish the book and take my initiation as enchytristria (funeral priestess), that will also count for my second initiation in the Starry Bull, and I can begin initiating others if I wish.

  • I'm about to be an aunt again.

  • I got to visit my nephews, brother, and sister-in-law in North Carolina this past summer.

  • I am doing some new and exciting things, including taking the second class on the Toys of Dionysos, considering joining an ecstatic drum circle, and planning to teach a death preparedness class, and eventually a class to train kedemones (tenders of dead bodies).

  • In service of the last of those, I have set up a Discord server for discussion of death, dying, and related issues. If you're interested, you can email me at hexdotink@gmail.com.

  • As a Major Winter Gift-Giving Excuse present, I planned (and my mom helped assemble) a Harry Potter potions kit for my elder nephew, and am working on a Potion of the Month Club for an ongoing gift. He's absolutely delighted with the whole thing.

  • I'm currently working on a couple of substantive posts, one on weaving wards, and one on making silk cocoon charms.

  • I'm reading a book about binding spells and curse tablets.

There we go, I think that sums up a lot.
