Thoughts and Plans

My posting has been a bit sporadic recently. Yashynka has been much more interactive at the cafes, and has discovered the mouse, which makes everything difficult. But I'm working around it by typing at home and then just transferring posts when I'm online, which should free up more time for actual editing, something I'm never good at, even in the best circumstances. Looking forward, I'm planning a discussion post on mythos for Wednesday. Jenna has given a lovely, well-thought out response to Mr. Pond's reminder that mythology is not something to play with and sample, but something to fall into - something that demands from us a wholehearted response. On Friday I'm looking forward to delving into sacramental "magic", or the folk practices, superstitions, and daily magic that are attached to common sacramentals. I love these little mysteries, the practices that continually remind me that "with God all things are possible".

Also coming soon, I'm editing and re-editing my reflections on Motherhood, in the hopes of posting as a three-part series thoughts on birth, solitude, and boundaries.

Blessings to all & thanks for your patience,


  1. It may make your life more difficult, but Y.P. discovering the mouse is the single cutest thing I have heard of since the last time Y.P. did a thing.

  2. Haha, I remember my nieces going through that grabbing-everything phase. Very cute. Very difficult to eat, or work, or pretty much anything at a table.

    Looks like you've got a great set of posts planned! I'm excited to read them. :)

  3. Yeah, Yarrow knocked over the cookie jar yesterday, which thrilled Luba's greedy little heart.

    I'm really excited about the posts - though sometimes it's hard to remember what I said I'd write about. I want to post on the articles you (Jenna) linked on Christian Magic in Fantasy and whatnot, maybe not too directly though, do you know the etiquette for that sort of thing???

    The writer's group has been an amazing inspiration, if you keep it going, I'll definitly stick with it past November.
