DNA Relatives

I was put up for adoption at birth and adopted fairly quickly. I grew up an only child and never knew anyone I was genetically related. Turns out our paths had crossed a few times in very peculiar ways over the years, but never in such a way that I knew who they were nor … Continue reading DNA Relatives →

MistressPrime & BuzzFeed

Butch

5 years ago today, my birth father passed away; one month before I lost my baby, and over 2 years before I found him.   I wish I could have met him. There are times I’m sad I didn’t get the opportunity to grow up with him and his side of the family, but I … Continue reading Butch →

Heathenry Belongs to All of Us

Originally posted on mainer74: ? Hail, I have long said that it is not the Troth’s place to tell the AFA how to run their house.  We go our own way and have our own understanding of Heathenry, what it meant to our ancestors, and what it means to us today. …

Pagan Education – A List of Witch Schools

Frequently I’m asked if I teach online. In general I do not, and I don’t teach just anyone. I prefer to teach people I know and those who are genuinely interested in learning.

When You’re Accustomed To Privilege, Equality Feels Like Oppression

Originally posted on The Boeskool: I’ve never been punched in the face. Not in an actual fight, at least. I’m not much of a fighter, I suppose… More of an “arguer.” I don’t think I’m “scared” to get into a fight, necessarily–There have been many times I have put myself in situations where a physical  fight…

Where the heck have you been?

Where do I even begin to start? Technically, I didn’t go anywhere, I was still here, just not HERE. *points at WordPress* Admittedly, I’ve been more active on Twitter, Tumblr, and Facebook. My responsibilities shifted a bit. Though I didn’t mention it on here previously, one of the new responsibilities I took on began November … Continue reading Where the heck have you been?…
