Quotes: a Lee-ism
"If there is such a thing as sin, then it is not our actions that are the sins in themselves. It is when our actions hurt others that they then become sinful."

Life in Not So Many Words
I'm sort of going through some things lately. I'll probably be taking more of a break in between posts than usual. Just promise not to give up on me. Again, I always come back... bouncing all the way.

My Very Own TV
I just thought this little thing was very cool. I was just thinking about how bored I get sometimes between classes. Now I can watch TV on my own blog. :) I know I'm kind of geeky, but I'm okay with that. Anyway, check this little guy out.
Changing channels isn't a problem either. Just click the settings button on the far bottom right of the tv and you'll be watching mtv, animal planet, or the sci-fi channel in no time.
By the way, Mozilla does weird things to the player. I'd use IE if you've got it. If you're using Firefox then things might be acting a little strange and you may be wondering why in the world I posted it in the first place. Trust me it works in IE.

Does Kirk Cameron Read Panthea?
Hey guys. Look at this comment I got today from an older post of mine entitled Know Thyself. Notice the little bit about The Way of the Master which is not once mentioned in the post itself. Maybe Kirk or his buddy Ray Comfort were doing a little search on their show and my blog came up. Why do you suppose this person prefers to remain anonymous?
Anonymous said...I'm going to address this with a few simple words. First, I believe in the Goddess who is the Lady of Life. She carries the kind of love that all healthy mothers do for their children - for all of creation. Her lessons are very different from those of your just and righteous god of the bible. I don't believe in the bible. I don't believe in sin. I believe most (not all) of the ten commandments are obsolete and only served to control a less enlightened culture. I don't believe in your god. Your conversion tactics are wasted on me. I can only hope that the Mother calls out to you and enters your heart so that you may see real truth and freedom through the divine inspiration of her lessons. I mean no disrespect but wish you a journey full of open eyes and mystical experiences.

Libra: Library Software
As Pagans we typically tend to have a lot of books on our shelves. Here is the perfect way to keep track of them all. It's a piece of freeware called Libra.
Not only is this a great piece of software to store your own personal book collection in a good looking way, but it's also a fully functional lending library. Groups, circles, covens, groves, etc. can employ this tool to lend out books to their members. The catalog can even be exported as a web file to be published. Members could view the online catalog, email the library owner, and then have the book brought to them at the next group gathering. It couldn't be simpler.
Circle members studying towards initiations may not have to purchase the required books if other members were willing to lend them out. Libra personally makes me feel a little bit more secure in knowing where my books are.
The best part of the whole thing is that Libra is free. I've been searching for something like this for ages. By the way, I am in no way affiliated with Libra. I just love the product. There also appears to be a lot of room for expansion on this product. You can even customize the background. My screenshot above has glass shelves (default to Libra) and my own pretty wallpaper pattern. Click the image to make it bigger and you'll notice that Goddess for Hire is marked OUT. This is because a circlemate borrowed it from me over the weekend. Now I'll know where this book is and when it was borrowed.
Cool stuff. Check out their website and give it a shot. There are loads more features that I didn't mention for you to explore and play with.

Ah Me... Randomness
Hormones suck. I think maybe I need that pill that gets rid of PMS. I'm one of the lucky few who is capable of an emotional breakdown during a cycle. Yeah for me. I'm looking into more natural ways to control my hormones and I've been trying to cut down on my sugar intake to keep the PCOS at bay. I still feel icky. Some might say it has something to do with astrology but I'm more of an astronomy person. I'm not sure Mercury being in retrograde really does anything at all. But maybe. I'm willing to learn.
Anyway, I started school again this week. I'm actually taking an Astrology class - that along with Children's Lit and Painting. Hopefully I only have a few more semesters left before I can get that long awaited (12 years) degree. Of course I took some time away from school to get married and raise a kid. But now that my little one isn't so little anymore I can take care of some dreams I've had waiting on the back burner.
I'm still working with my circle as well. We're planning on doing closing ritual for our local PPD and have a meeting in regards to that event tonight. It will be nice to see everyone. But before I go there I am going to visit the traveling Vietnam Memorial. We're going with the in-laws and I know my mother-in-law is going to cry here eyes out. Goddess love her she is one of the most emotional people I know. I think that's a good thing though. A lot of people can't shed a single tear.
Alright, just some random stuff today. Maybe I'll tackle some more pressing issues tomorrow. Anyone have any ideas? Anyone new to Goddess Religion and have questions? Don't be shy.
Oh and those of your whose blogs I visit regularly - I haven't forgotten about you and I still visit. I just seem to have a lack of time to comment properly these days. I'll be back though. I always come back. Gotta love those cyclic things. Love you guys!

Just to Dance
Just some random thoughts that ran through my head in the form of poetry. Yes, I actually do think in verse. Anyway, I'm looking towards Ma Kali to decapitate this melancholy I seem to be stuck in lately. Here's to a future containing a spontaneous series of up-notes.
Branches break against gale force
Yet the maples dance with subtle grace.
Ripped from limb to limb
They continue to move in rhythm.
Am I like the tree;
Destroying myself just to dance?
If so, who is the wind;
Who will be my partner in obliteration?
Is it a selfish wish to want someone to dance with?
