Livia Indica, of Magic In These Hills, has honoured me with this award.
I must pass on the respect to 7 blogs I deem worthy. This is not an easy task!
I see Anne’s Bored Gods have received a deserved round of applause from multiple sources, for example, so I’m not going to nominate any blogs I know to have received this award.
I would have thought that simplified my task, but it’s still not easy, so I guess I’m going with off-the-top-of-my-head.
Keeping this slapdash methodology in mind, I nominate:
Hecate, for always being pertinent to women’s issues . And craft issues. And political issues in Amerika, which I confess I don’t always fully understand. Someone has to pay attention.
Paul, for his beautiful photography on Evoking the Goddess, and his words which indeed evoke a sense of Her, always.
Mahud, Between Old and New Moons, for being far and away the most original of explorers of NeoPaganism and Mythology I have come across on the Net.
Donald, In Puris Naturalibus, for being the first person wearing the Christian label (albeit Gnostic Christian!) who has demonstrated to me that embeddedness in immanence is not the preserve of the Pagan faiths.
Grian/Lee, at Panthea for her feisty refusal to back down to a challenge, and for backing up her arguments with good research.
Lastly, but by no means leastly, I’d like to honour Mary A for her numinous writing on living. It’s all Sacred, and it shows in both her old blog, A Spell in Wales, and her new one, African Alchemy. *
I don’t want anyone to feel obligated to go hunt down and post about seven blogs they admire by having been mentioned here. It’s just a fun little exercise, and Gods know I need that mental challenge right now.
Now it’s time for me to toddle off back to meatspace, there to ironically keep falling into altered states of consciousness in front of my keyboard. It’s a nuisance and I’m controlling the tendency so far, but it just shows how far and deep I’ve come with my exploration of otherspace.
*=PS: Nobody tell me that’s more than seven! I know! I couldn’t get it any lower!!
