As Christ the Lord was about to celebrate with the disciples the paschal supper at which he instituted the Sacrifice of his Body and Blood, he commanded a large, furnished upper room be prepared. The Church has always judged that this command applied to herself whenever she decided about things related to places, rites, and […]

Always Choose Love

What is prayer?  Some see it as a plea for help, a request from the higher powers to grant wishes or to create healing.  The way I see it is as a conversation with the Universe, God, the Goddess, or angels, guides and helpers.  How is prayer different than other activities?  I don’t believe it […]

I apologize for all the entomology posts but…..I really do love entomology. I enjoy nearly every aspect of entomology. Except spiders. I cannot explain the irrational fear, but I really do not like spiders. In case anyone is wondering! This post has nothing to do with spiders. The study of spiders is araneology (I may […]

little sacred space

In just a matter of days, we’ll come to the high point of the Christian tradition: the resurrection of Jesus. Pastors across the country will stand in the pulpit and use one of my favorite phrases–they’ll remind congregations that not just something has changed because of this resurrected Christ, everything has changed. The pastor I […]

Let me share with you the Goddess most honored as the Goddess of liminal time and space.  It is our beloved Hekate, Great Goddess of the Three Ways, bridging Earth, Sea and Sky as we travel between worlds. In modern times, She is seen by many as a “hag” or old witch stirring the cauldron. […]

8/3/19 – 12/3/19 Georgiana My initial thoughts as we began to near La Paz were “it must only be a few minutes now”, however, I had evidently been extremely misled when told that the city was situated on Bolivia’s recognised altiplano. We had been driving along the plain for some time and it was getting […]

Patriots Day 2019 was not a very enjoyable day. It was certainly not as dreadful as Patriots Day 2013, but still a frightful day. I woke up to thunder, looked out at the dreary rain, made the decision not to drive to Lexington so I could walk the Battle Road as is my custom, did […]

The Riddle of Steel

It’s that time of year again: summer looms for us here on Earth, but in Westeros the icy winds of winter are blowing, ushering in yet another season of HBO’s monster fantasy hit “Game of Thrones!” This time, however, it’s for the very last time (at least until any number of prequels, sequels, or spin-offs get traction)! Lightning rarely strikes twice, however, so regardless of the ultimate fate of the franchise, this is the final chapter for these beloved characters and the long-awaited conclusion to David Benioff and DB Weiss’ mammoth sword-and-sorcery epic. Therefore, the stakes are high, both in and out of the fiction, as we move now into Season 8, Episode 1, entitled “Winterfell.”

Balladeer's Blog

It’s been awhile since Balladeer’s Blog visited Hittite myths so here we go. The Hittite Empire spread throughout Anatolia, covering a large part of what is now Turkey and Syria as well as some parts far eastward and southward of there (accounts vary). The scarce remains of the texts regarding the deities worshipped by the Hittites […]

How could it be over? It felt like years yet minutes yet a dream a nightmarish hallucination Yet the overwhelming slap of grief That indeed was very real The sting beyond words The stone-wheight upon their hearts That  yes that …indeed confirmed it really had happened   Huddled together not sleeping fearful of every knock […]
