So much life happens that is not captured in the Book. The spooky bits generally all end up here, and the magic bits. Some days it feels like I’ve run out of things to say here, and other days I wish I could put into words all the things I’m doing. No matter what ends up here in writing, know that all my days are filled with excitement and general Wizardry.
Right now I’m working on a new piece of stained glass which I will unveil at a later date. Still exploring new avenues of creativity like Flow Arts, and back in full swing with the ideas of the Magic Resistance. The old coven has fallen away, and a new smaller and more dedicated coven took its place. And if you have surmised that I live in the American South, you will not be surprised to read that I’m starting to go balls-deep into queer activism. Bitch I am fired up for my people!
One of the most exciting developments is happening with the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. This order of secular queer nuns has been educating, uplifting and leading the queer community at large since 1979. Their charism, described as “serious parody”, offers a way to reach people through the “promulgation of Universal Joy and the expiation of stigmatic guilt.” It’s drag, street ministry, entertainment, activism, religious parody while still a higher calling, all blended together into something that can’t quite be pinned down. After several years of wanting to join them, I am finally at the beginning of that journey as a “postulant” within the Order. With all my skills and interests combined, it’s like becoming a Sister of Perpetual Indulgence is truly inevitable. More to come on that (and new article category “Perpetual Indulgence”, see tags below)
