It’s January, which is a time when a lot of people are poking at their methods of organisation and getting things done, and that makes me want to talk about what I’m currently doing and how it’s working.
Why on a Pagan blog? Well, first, I don’t stop wanting to get things done just because I’m Pagan. But also because a couple of the things I’ve started doing are related to long-term divination and lunar / astrological awareness. My current organisation of my tasks is also (lightly) astrology centered, using a method I’m finding very helpful for getting an idea of balance between different parts of my life.
One of my goals for this year is to post here more often than I did last year. (More than four should be achievable!) My actual goal is at least once a month, and more than that would be nice. I’m working on a post with meaningful content in another window, but I wanted to get a few notes out before I do that.
This week has so many people I know so worried about what the future holds (me included.) I wrote up a long essay, over on the Seeking site, on Wednesday, about self-care in difficult times, but I also wanted to write here about what I’m doing in specific, about the results of the 2016 election, and moving forward.
So here’s what I’m doing: Pausing. Getting my house in order. Volunteering. Donating. Collecting and sharing information.
Last spring, I commissioned the lovely people at Omega Artworks (Gary and Suzy Zahradka) to make me an athame. It arrived this week, and now I want to share photographs!
I got a very nice email from someone who liked my blog, and who noticed I hadn’t posted since last spring, hoping I was still all right. Which, yes! Just work is still eating most of my brains.
However, I thought it might be a good time to do a “What I’ve been up to” sort of round up, so here’s what I’ve been up to in July and August. (I went through and pulled numbers because I was sort of curious, and because I’ve been feeling like pieces of this are off balance from what I’d like them to be and data might help me make choices I liked better.)
I’m also hoping it might be a useful sort of view for people wondering what a random Pagan’s daily life looks like, in a manageable chunk.
