Dear Mom of a happy little boy

This is one of the most beautiful photos I have ever seen. Your son is surrounded by an aura of happiness and self worth rarely seen. You are raising your son well. It is rare for a child so young to have the courage to say they know who they are. Many of us enter our twenties still not knowing our true selves. So remember, no matter what others say to you or to your son, you are a great mom!

Pagan Humor LXXIII

You May Be a Yuppie Pagan If… (3)

  1. Not everyone gets to use the “good” chalice.
  2. Your ritual bath is a Jacuzzi.
  3. You don’t do astral projection, frequent flyer miles are so much easier.
  4. The gardener spends more time in your outdoor temple than you do.
  5. Your familiar is leased.
  6. You stop at the 7-11 to pick up a half cord of firewood for the bonfire.
  7. You are offended by the “We are the old people…” chant ever since the facelift.
  8. You shopped for a ritual staff and came back with two MBAs and an administrative assistant.
  9. Five
  10. fold kiss or not, the thought of lips on your Guccis turns you on.
  11. You would invite the coven to your new house but, well, they’re just so messy.
  12. You have not read The Spiral Dance and are waiting for it to be made into a movie.
  13. You had a pocket added to your ritual robe for your cellular phone.
  14. You would go to Pagan festivals if they would just hold them at a nice resort.
  15. Invoking the spirit of fire is expressly forbidden by your townhouse covenants.
  16. You wouldn’t use a script in ritual, that’s what the laptop computer on the altar is for.

Lol. When Fix releases Fogg from jail and Fogg punches him in the nose, I loved it! “that’s
what you might call a good application of English fits!”

The saddest thing I’ve ever heard was when my mom leaned down to me at my Granddaddy’s funeral and said, “The thing I regret most in life is that you’ll never have a daddy like him.”


Five years ago my husband had sperm frozen before he went to Iraq and never came back. My current husband and I had to use a sperm donor to have a baby. Our son, he looks just like his dad and my husband will never know.


On the 1st of April you spoke in Modesto, California. I borrowed a friend’s car to drive from Berkeley spending the little cash I had for the ticket and gas. The secret I was going to reveal was:

“I got my high-school girlfriend pregnant, have a 30 year old Daughter and my parents don’t know”

Just before setting off from Berkeley I decided the secret had lived long enough and it was time for it to die. I called my Mum (back in England on Skye) and told her about my Daughter. My Mum was really OK with it, I should have told her long ago.

This Sunday, Father’s Day, my daughter will meet her Grand Parents and my Parents will meet the Grand Daughter they didn’t know they had.

After your talk I met you, shook your hand, and thanked you. You didn’t know what I was thanking you for, but now you know.

“…the Mormons, after they were driven from Illinois in 1845, began to colonise.”
Interesting… I wonder who drove them out?

“…he related the history of the Mormons rom Biblical times: how that, in Israel, a Morman
prophet of the tribe of Joseph published the annals of the new religion, and bequeathed them
to his son Mormon; how, many centuries later, a translation of this precious book, which was
written in Egyptian, was made by Joseph Smith, junior, a Vermont farmer, who revealed
himself as a mystical prophet in 1825; and how, in short, the celestial messenger appeared to
him in an illuminated forest an gave him the annals of the lord.”

Seriously? A glowing angel appears and gives him a book written in egyptian, which he
translates into english? If he would translate egyptian, why wasn’t he working as an
archeologist in Egypt?

Around The World 2

Describing the people of Japan: “…they wore canvas shoes, straw sandals, and clogs of
worked wood, and who displayed tight-looking eyes, flat chests, teeth fashionably
blackened…” Was there really a time in history where black teeth were fashable?
