I’ve decided not only to join the pagan blogging project (late I know), but set myself some personal goals, which are:
1) Memorise at least one Orphic Hymn in Ancient Greek. Probably the Orphic Hymn to Hekate to recite at the crossroads at night when leaving offerings.
2) Use my art more often as a devotional practice.
3) Finish preparing the garden for growing food.
4) Improve my writing skills and do more devotional writing.
5) Improve my knowledge of the stars.
6) Improve my health in general.
I will probably post my first ‘A’ post later tonight and hopefully get my second ‘A’ post near completion and posted in a day or two.
Finally finished this. I should learn to stop doubting my abilities and just finish my artwork.
I’ve been quiet recently, I know. I won’t go into why, but I’d like to direct your attention to my new blog, Aithaloeis Theos, a blog devoted to Hephaistos. Since Hephaistos is the god I am primarily devoted to, it will become my primary blog, while this blog will become a place where I post miscellaneous observations.
I hope you have all been keeping well. Take care!
On this day in 1066, the Battle of Hastings occurred. It is an important date in English history, since it is the day that Harold II Godwinson, the last Anglo-Saxon king, died. Harold II’s death paved the way for William the Conqueror to become the first Norman King of England. Being English, I find this date to be important. It marks the end of an era and the beginning of a new one in English history.
So to mark the events of the 14th October 1066, I honoured Harold II and the other war dead who fell on this day. I also honoured Hestia, Eris, Ares and Athene, gods whom I find to be especially important on this day.
I done my usual routine on Hekate’s Deipnon and left an offering at a nearby crossroads. This time it was a bit different. After leaving the offering and turning round, a dog started to bark in the distance, which was a bit peculiar since the dogs had been quiet that night. Coincidence? Who knows, regardless I found it quite odd at the time.
