I’m confused.

I just signed in to Vocal.Media but I had to go through my articles to reach my account…what? Okay well…guess I’ll figure this out.

Sorry for the misinformation before.

NOT A MEMORY HAS THE SEA

A beautiful revelation.

NOT A MEMORY HAS THE SEA

Covers the sea, crashes against the land with force,

Since the beginning of its creation has not sat still.

Touches life as it moves, like the ticking of time,

Never stops, never remembering where it’s been.

It does not think, there is no thought out plan,

Although each day and every moment, a routine just as man.

It can be touched, felt, you can never take hold,

Power and energy as it never grows old.

Not a memory has the sea, friendly or mean,

Its magic and mystery free to be,

NOT A MEMORY HAS THE SEA

Being Mindful Works, Okay? STFU

I know that hearing about mindfulness and staying in the present can be bombarding from time to time, so let me just get something off my chest.

Remaining in the present isn’t some forced positivity bullshit. Just now, before writing this, I was about to make myself do work I didn’t want to do. In that moment I was feeling grumpy and tired because I was just out seeing a movie with family and my introverted ass was already drained from going out yesterday AND I’m going to have to go out again later tonight. So right when I get home I start adulting and after taking care of what I knew needed to be done, I almost pushed myself into doing something extra, which was leading to another extra thing…and another.

I took a beat to recognize how I really felt: I’m reaching mental and emotional exhaustion and with the energy I have left, I want to do something I enjoy. When I do something I enjoy, and do it alone, I become recharged. So I took a selfie that I liked and shut down all the other extra things I was about to drain myself with. What I love to do is have a quiet moment to myself to express myself, whether it be through my amateur photography, blogging, or standing outside and just enjoying Lammas, which is exactly what I’m going to do next.

Just to let all the cynics out there know, being mindful or being in the present moment fucking works. It prevents you from wasting your time on things that can wait.

The Triple Goddess of Modern Paganism

Neptune's Dolphins

The belief that the various Goddesses (such as Venus, Aphrodite, Inanna, Astarte, and Ishtar) are parts of the Great Goddess (a single Goddess) is prevalent in modern Paganism. The Great Goddess is often understood as the Triple Goddess, who is the Maiden, Mother and Crone. Examples of the Triple Goddess for modern Pagans are Diana, Isis and Kali or Kore, Persephone and Hecate. (Note 1)

The Triple Goddess could be regarded as a Trinity of the Divine Feminine. The Maiden, the waxing crescent moon, is the young woman of new beginnings. The Mother, the full moon, is the mature woman of fertility. The Crone, the waning crescent moon, is the elderly woman of wisdom. Modern Goddess religions often add a fourth – the Dark Mother, the new moon, who is the Shadow of the Mother.

The concept of the Triple Goddess was introduced to modern…

The Epistolary Novel

Further information on the epistolary style.

The Edible Eighteenth Century

The Epistolary Novel refers to a work made up entirely of letters.  This style of writing coined its name from the Latin word, ”epistola” which means letter.  Aphra Behn first wrote the epistolary form in the 17th century in a novel titled Love-Letters Between a Nobleman and his Sister.  In this unprecedented style of writing, Behn actually included the voice of a narrator, which he interjected between the letters.  This addition, however, was not typical of the Epistolary form, which became widely popular in the 18th century. 

As the Epistolary novel became a form people wanted to read more of and authors wanted to write, three different types emerged: a monologic work, a dialogic work, and a polylogic work.  A monologic epistolary novel only contains letters written by one character.  The monologic style can be seen in Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe’s The Sorrows of a Young Werther.  A dialogic…

I’m going to stop disappearing

Although I’m kind of active on social media, I’ve been slipping away from WordPress and I don’t want that because it’s basically my platform for creative content and my business.

Well then…let’s knock off that bad habit.
