I really haven’t written anything good in a long time, just a hymn and a post forced upon me by circumstance. It’s terrible and I’d rather not talk about it. Besides not feeling myself, I’ve been terribly busy between class, my new job as an editor at the school paper (and as my boss says, it has a long way to go to come up to par; time for some military discipline), and dealing with people. I have a bunch of art projects coming out of the kiln soon, so that makes me happy.
Some things to know: Thessaly Temenos has created a registration page to get a tentative headcount for the Hellenic Revival Festival. It’s really important you register ASAP so everyone can do as much planning as possible. Galina and Sannion offered to help me put on the Ares ritual, which should be pretty decent considering over 30 of you responded to the poll. In addition, a new Shrine of Ares group has been created on Facebook for you social media-savvy folks. I’m also working on another project I’m not quite ready to announce, but you’ll know it when you see it.
I do have a request: if anyone knows which old philosopher spoke about the three reasons to pray, I would love to know–I can’t finish my next Ares 101 post without properly quoting/paraphrasing the source. My memory is generally pretty sharp, but I’ve been distracted lately. Hell, it was hard enough writing this post. But hey, keep calm and Hail Ares!
