|We need to start some sort of book borrowing exchange among us since we spend so much time recommending and discussing books together!
I was going to ask about another stereotype... are most pagans well read? My only pagan friend IRL is a librarian and loves her books... there are 2 librarians here, the book recs are usually flying and some of you also have great writing styles of your own... what IS it about this form of spirituality & literature?
I'm thoroughly enjoying The Red Tent
. It's what I've been craving. I've had 11 books on/in my nightstand- parenting, self-help, gardening... but no fiction. I just couldn't get into reading any of them but I really look forward to everyone falling asleep now so I can get back to these women.
wombatclay~wow, that's a really hard place to be! this week in The Goddess Book of Days
talks about keeping a statue of Bast in your home to protect the women & children... and to keep it happy w/fresh flowers.
I've liked this little book, it's actually a dayplanner typa thing...but focuses on a different goddess every month,usually relative to the time of year.. there are lots of myths, poems, chants, meditations... suggestions for altars.
We went campering this weekend & had such a great time. It was the perfect chance to celebrate my good news. While laying in my hammock I decided that it was something I needed more of~just to glide like that, suspended in air. I was even excited to learn how to tie it up myself... then as we were leaving, dd threw one of our ropes right into a patch of poison oak. Guess I'll have to get a new length before I can float it here between my maples! My feral child, camping. <sigh>
Do any of the midwestern mamas know what's blooming yellow in the fields right now?
