A Rainy Saturday Afternoon
Why does the word 'tiddlywinks' immediately conjure up a vivid memory of their flavour?
Hereby proving that those "Not suitable for children under the age of..." warnings on toys are, um, necessary. Glad I never choked.

The aforementioned compassion is engaged as I read the latest...That poor woman
who condemns Harry Potter. Of course, a lot of people misunderstand and hate the deep-rooted faith of Wicca and witchcraft. This is not a surprise, but what worries me today is that I've read her own words, and she says she fears that due to the lack of prayer in schools, "God was expelled. So we've raised a generation not to know Him."
I ask you, how can a beautiful, universal, ever-loving, all-encompassing God be cast out forever from the heart of anyone who wants to find Him? I'm sorry to pity you, Laura, but you're pretty sad, in my books, if you believe that any number of disbelievers can eradicate Deity from our lives. She will speak to us no matter how we denounce or ignore Her. Such insecurity of spirit frightens me.

One of the underlying things giving fuel to my anger of late is the fact that much of my ire has been directed towards utterly petty things. I haven't been devoting enough of my energies toward what matters. So I'm pleased right now to be righteously angry towards something important!
How dare Christians act as if they invented
love and compassion? These basic, good instinctual feelings have existed as long as there have been human souls on the earth. Yet they call them Christian Values.
I have had occasion to practice my growl in the last couple of weeks. I exercise it now to its full extent.

My path toward light is illuminated
by the simplest wisdom of faith:
To be defined not by what I hate,
but by what I embrace
And never to believe a fool
who says that what I love is foolish.
For my Goddess was beloved
millennia before the fool's god was conceived
For she lives within us all
And she will endure -
Like anything so adored -
As long as people live to speak her name.

Flame will seek out flame and grow;
The eye of the storm seems so small;
Faultlines reach snaking arms to each other;
Water of the flood pool together,
Finding our lowest points.
Nature schemes to teach us
To see beyond the destruction -
For, in fully embracing suffering
We can begin to see through it,
And to rise above it
Knowing that the Mother of us all
Planted the seeds of infinite potential
Not only as wildflowers
Ready to sprout from bare soil,
But also within our souls.
