I would like to start writing again, when I have time and the urge (the latter is usually moreso the case), and what I want to write about are discoveries, questions, confusion. I feel like this is the best place for these types of musings, for me.
In particular, I'm hoping that by establishing a blog here, I will set myself to a training schedule, of sorts.
Does anyone else get information-happy, nibbling and licking each new tasty magic tidbit, only to find they never sunk their teeth in, never commited to a full bite?
This, I think, is the downside to a scatterbrained solitary. Everything looks so shiny, and I don't handle it long enough to see if it dulls, or changes color, or shows me more just by fully examining it.
So, since I do really well with public integrity (if I say I'm gonna do it, and others hear it, I damn well do it), I'm using this blog as blinders to keep me focused on three things in the next three months:
--Documenting my experiences and knowledge gained from local flora and fauna, to create what Sarah Lawless called a genius Loci Profile
(this will prove harder in the next month, as the snow takes hold, but I can't just observe when all the pretty flowers are out)
--Fully exploring, noting, and manipulating the energy points in my home, and the protections outside
--Working through the exercises in first book on shamanism I've bought (The Secrets of Shamanism), detailing my experiences, and do a full review after trying all the lessons. This seems like quite the layperson's book, not written for those familiar with magic, but maybe that can be part of the charm...
There is this part of me that says: and, and, AND! As if the above is not enough, squeezed in with being a caretaker, a breadwinner, a student, and a friend.
The books I've ordered can wait. The dreams of learning new skills will be there.
Without some focus, I fear I will burn out, or never drink fully, missing the aftertaste.
I'm always open to comments, suggestions, questions, rants, disbelief, venting, and anything else thrown out there. Here we go...
