So, this year I’m working on getting my writing mojo back, and I’m doing pretty good so far. Not only have I finished my mystic novella (woot!) I’ve also written a short Star Trek fanfic. The Wife and I have been watching The Next Generation from the beginning with the German dub track and English subtitles for listening and vocabulary practice, and well, I got inspired.

“So, now that I’ve made all these tools, what do you want of me?” I asked. “Well, you use them, of course!” She said. “But I’m not sure how, and for what purpose!” She sighed. “I suppose it’s only fair to tell you since we had you write the journey in the first place.

The Descent by Mage of Machines is an approximately one hour meditation journey to the Underworld and the Isle of Apples under the protection of Inanna to commune with the Beloved Dead. The music was written, composed, and performed by Sarah Thompson, also known as Mage of Machines. You’ll recognize a little bit of this album as the show intro and exit music for This Week In Heresy. Some of you, if you had attended Pantheacon in 2013, will also recognize this music. The Circle of Cerridwen, with friends, performed The Descent in a live dramatization and dance with anContinue Reading

“No, no…pleases don’t fall asleep! I’d like to have this conversation.” He said, as I was typing in my bed. I was tempted to nap right then, but I did want to write. I turned on my Hated Bands playlist and invited Him to have a seat. He laughed. “It’s easy for people to hate what they don’t understand, isn’t it?” I nodded. “Definitely.

“You humans are very strange creatures,” She said as She sat down. I took a sip of my cocoa. “I can’t argue with You about that. We tend to do a lot of weird stuff to each other and to our planet. We are stubborn, willful, quick to anger, but then we can be full of compassion, joy, and happiness.” “Well, yes, that’s very true.” She paused. “But your species doesn’t learn very well from it’s past, does it?” “No, unfortunately.” “You all come through My realm, one way or another, and yet you never seem to listen to theContinue Reading
