John Beckett wrote a really, really good article on polytheism here. He really drops the mike and if y'all read nothing else today online, go read this. it's a damned fine piece of writing.
Next, Dver has created a magical thing, a creature, a way to open doors. It's mesmerizing and enchanting. Go here and watch the video. This is something very, very special.
On a personal note, my ancestor book is finally out and i am offering a special sale: I have ten copies that I'm selling for $25 +$5 S&H that I will sign, personalize and send, along with the prayer card of one's choice (I actually have eight left--two have sold). While one can purchase the book at createspace or amazon, I will not be offering signed personalized copies of it again, and rarely do book signings so if you want one of these, contact me at krasskova at gmail.com.
Also, the NY Regional Diviner's Conference is being held in Fishkill, NY on November 29. I'll be posting a list of speakers and workshops soon, but if you're thinking about attending, now is the time to register. Check it out here.
On a less pleasant note, if you want an example of how not to behave to an elder, a spiritworker, a shaman, a priest, or just a regular fucking human being, check this out. The level of obnoxious entitlement here is phenomenal. Reality check, folks: just because we're on social media does not mean we are at *anyone's* beck and call. The only thing any of us is obligated to do is serve our Gods consistently and to the best of our ability. You're not owed an email. I am not owed an email. (I was really just flabbergasted at this whole exchange. Please go read it. If sometimes some of us seem at times suspicious and peppery, this is largely why--we deal with stuff like this all the time and I'm sure we're not the only ones. Maybe we should all get together and form a 'talk to the hand' club. >_< I've since learned, by the way, that several spiritworkers have had run ins with this person to the same effect. Unbelievable!)
Finally, since I don't want to end on a foul note, here is something really exciting: Polytheist.com is going live in just a few days--Sept. 1!! It really is a damned fine time to be a polytheist.
