I seem to have hit a snag in working through ADF’s Dedicant Path.

Let me know if there’s anything you’re working on that you’d like to share, and if I like it I will add it to my next link round-up. 94 more words

When the Strange Things Come

One aspect of daily religious and occult practice I forgot is the kicking up of “strange.” It starts out small. One night, I got out of bed to grab a pair of socks and was hit by a shot of cold, so intense my whole body started shaking. 281 more words
