Ha ha wow actually entering theism is interesting and not entirely comfortable.

Most of my neighbors don't carry the lessons of atheism. Xtian's think I love their 'bad not-god' without even asking me about my holy books.

What I should do is get back in to public ritual, right?

Ah. Eleven years ago today I woke a slightly wiser seeker and a guest in curious and quality company.
I would go on to phage important seeds of insight and keys of organization that, vining and trunking, shore up the scaffolding of my understanding and illuminate my cartography to terrific dimensions. I would learn the dances, surgeries, and sensory catalogue of ritual practices. And what a menagerie for correspondence and constolatiom.
How exhilarating it is even yet.

Standing alters are great for eye level reminders of reverence, but it's not filling the same function as an alter I can access from my meditation mat for long sessions and extended offering processes.

I need bc my music svc will never understand the concept of 'remember forever that I love this but never fucking play it on auto everrrrrrr.

(Usually tonal reasons forreal. Like saving it to write by later, or for something spooky, etc. But not easy listening. Not to be cut into the mixx.)

And for the next couple months it is a little more obvious that all matter is merely shadow of light. We are merely slowed for a chance to realize.

Thoughts on The Feast of the Dragon (Liturgy for a Celebration
with Sol in the Succedent Decan of Scorpio, by T D.), my choice of reading for the recent thinning of the veil this year.

Been mistaken for a toxic excretion subspecies but sometimes that works in my favor so oh well. (rbbt)

Parents, please be sure to check your kids' Halloween candy! I found some nefarious neighborhood philosopher had already used Occam's razor on my child's idea of a Snickers bar to extract all the important sugary chocolate and left behind only this empty candy bar wrapper trash!

Ok somtimes I do wear makeup for other people. To let them know that if they engage me they may find themselves lost in a thought experiment. (ribbit)

Cw Body image (reframing, implied anthropology) 

Pretty sure I'm missing the part of my body that is The Tree I Live In.
The bottom of my feet grew to fit those limbs, ludos-loves through millenia.

I want to stay home and copy letters and their significants today, but tbh if I didn't have to go to work I would prob just wonder what to do and lay on the floor.
Which itself maybe isn't bad
(Peace to your languor, liber 90. Wisdom to my folly please, regardless.)

Civc religion, hot takes on pledge, #uspol, religious rights, short take. 

"One nation, IO PAN, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all...."

... I'd still rather take the section out, but if we're going to leave it in, I'm going to workshop this more immediate personal option.
(It slides in real easy in a normal speaking voice, though it's also easy to imagine, in some canny/safe moment, hollerin it at Ritual Evocation Volume.))
