Just a quick note to say that I am moving my blog over to Wordpress.
I tired to set it up so that Wordpress would post over here as well, but I can't seem to get that to work, so I'm just moving over there.
Follow me at:
The Eye of the Storm

(Thank you, dancingwolfgrrl)
Chances are I wont be posting over here anymore. If you'd like to comment on any of my posts (which have all been duplicated over there) please come on over and join the party. If I'm able to set up the crossposting in the future I will, but until further notice I'm just going to be posting over there from now on.

I am pleased to have returned to working on my art. (Running a store certainly does take one's free-time away...)
For the next five weeks I will be unveiling a new piece in the series, Goddesses of the Primal Elements. This first week: Arida, The Well of the Rising Sun.

For those who are interested, this past Wednesday night I gave an interview about Feri tradition, secrecy in the Craft, and the use and politics of the word 'warlock' to the hilarious Christian Day for his podcast Hex Education. Check it out if you are so inclined.

Some asked for the lyrics to the song I wrote for the Rapture of the Star Goddess ritual, performed at Pantheacon this past Sunday, and so I present them below. It was an exhilarating (and terrifying!) experience for me... at one point I entered more deeply into a pre-possesory state than I had intended and trailed off, forgetting my lines. But thankfully I picked them up again and finished. I posted a picture on my Facebook Page of myself in costume from immediately following the rite. You can tell that I am tranced-out of my gourd even then. :)
I Am (the Peacock Lord)

I am... the first-born of Her light
Who ushers... forth the day from night
Bear witness to my starry might
And join my grand seduction!
Now hearken you unto my song
Of life within destruction…
I am... the serpent in the well
Who rises... up to conquer hell
Calling heaven down upon the earth
And as the stars do fall…
My precious jewels reside in thee
Rise and hear my call!
Mine is... the path of sacred love
the serpent... twining with the dove
And as below so is above
All life in your reflection!
For each of you I’m in your heart
Your beauty-flawed perfection!
I am... the lust that rises high
into the... heavens beyond the sky
who dares to stand proud without shame
And as the sun does rise…
A new day dawns in paradise
And met with joyous cry…
I am beauty, I am pride!
I am the light that never hides!
I am the power without shame!
Holy power, yours to claim!
As we sing the universe
In concert with us now affirms
This sacred light within our hearts
Never dies, never departs
So we sing together now
to call that love and power down
within our blood, within our bones
the song that’s calling us… home…

My apologies to those who are overloaded with Feri drama. If this is you, please feel free to skip this link. I find myself needing to post a rebuttal to some serious allegations that were made against me. Please follow the link if you’d like to know my side of the story.

For those who may not have seen the news elsewhere, please check out my new website devoted to the BlueRose lineage of the F(a)eri(e) tradition: www.BlueRoseFeri.com
Part of the website is a new blog. I just posted a piece there that I wrote for the Wild Hunt Blog concerning the "split" in F(a)eri(e) tradition.
I will likely post my specifically F(a)eri(e) related stuff over there, but may from time to time still do the same here. My LJ will continue to be stuff about me and my work, including updates to my schedule.

I posted this elsewhere, but then realized I hadn't done it here, so...

Well... if you haven't read the accusations against me then you wont be able to here. The rebuttal post that I just posted was suspended for violation of copyrights in that I reposted the public posts that the user Elorie posted in accusing me of various absurdities. So... you will all just have to read my response without the benefit of reading her ranting posts unless you want to go to her journal directly and read them yourself. They are still public at the time of this writing.
So here is my rebuttal, stripped of quotes and obvious snark (while funny and good-feeling in the moment had lost it's charm and I just want to be done with it). Let's see how long this post can stay up.
