I’m beginning to wonder if I’m ever going to sleep again!
But, busy is good and I’m okay with it. So I haven’t kept pace with my #Blaugust stuff, but to be fair it’s been a crazy week and I’m just happy I haven’t dropped the ball on a drawing a day stuff as of yet.
For right now, I’ve got 460 page book to devour – and I say devour because not even 6 pages into it and I’m finding it’s dangerously hard to put down. It was recommended to me, and I recommend it to you, whoever you are. Margot Adler’s Drawing Down The Moon is a very well-written, and easy to read, book. It covers a lot of stuff about Paganism, Neo-Paganism, and it’s place in this modern world.
Even if you’re not taking a Journey to find your own spirituality it’s still worth the buy in my opinion. It’s a practical look things – neither overtly praising or demeaning of any given religion. Be prepared though, it’s dense. I stand by the fact that it’s easy to read, but there’s a LOT there.
Two other books I’m planning on devouring once I’m done with the first are Bonewits’s Essential Guide to Druidism, and Taking Up The Runes. Mostly because I’m deeply interested in Druidism – and Adler’s book focuses more on Witchcraft than the other Neo-Pagan ideals (I don’t yet know why, but I imagine it had to do with access), and also because the concept of Runes has been a draw for me since I was very young.
There’s just something… connective about them.
Anyway, I’ll try to read them as quick as I can, and subsequently share my thoughts on them here. I’m rather excited, it’s been a long time since I’ve had the access and drive to dive into religion and spirituality, and if I’m really lucky I’ll find what I’ve been looking for finally.
