And now I find myself at another exciting intersection.

When I started my blog, “Intersections,” in January of this year, I was looking for the next step after a wonderful experience contributing to The Juggler. After four years of contributing to a site that commented on paganism and culture, I was looking forward to a new project that combined my love of the pagan community with my interest in the arts and sciences. The response has been wonderful, and it has led me to a new crossroad.

I’m thrilled to be joining the team at Pagan Square. I have deep respect for many of the writers that contribute to this site. Diversity breeds strength, and Pagan Square has assembled a wonderfully diverse group of writers who combine their various perspectives, interests, and traditions to produce a beautiful cocktail of Pagan goodness. Like them, I hope to add my voice to a site that encourages, challenges, and nurtures our growing alliance of religions.

There is excitement ahead. While I will continue to explore modern culture through the eyes of modern witchcraft, I have even more in mind for the next year. I’m studying the High Priest degree in the Temple of Witchcraft, and as part of that degree I’ll be posting monthly on the intersection of social activism and magickal practice. There is a lot of real-world power in this yearlong series sitting in the queue right now, and it will begin soon with perspectives from some of the most knowledgeable people in our community. From there, we’ll be exploring magickal social justice through the stars, energy raising techniques, and magickal work throughout the year. Stay tuned!

Beyond that, I still stand for Paganism – in any form – as a valid modern religion that both fits into and catalyzes change in the modern world. We’ll always be a little outside the norm, and that is necessary to keep the fire of change burning against the waters of the mainstream, but to really create a better world we need to communicate with all other faiths. I believe in a plural society, and I will challenge both the mainstream faiths and our own views to keep a fire under that pluralism. Diversity breeds strength.

I began the Intersections blog with a quote from my favorite childhood rock star, Jon Bon Jovi. It’s only appropriate, here at another intersection, that I quote him again. This time it’s less about cars and more about where the intersection of my two typing hands can lead me. I hope you all will join me as I seek the crossroads of our world and our walls, something I can explore with these two typing hands:

With these two hands I can tear down walls,
I can build a bridge, I can break my fall
With these two hands I can pray or fight
I can hold the torch, I can shine a light
With these two hands…


Join me as I shine my light…

I am a teacher, theater lover, and witch who loves both reason and magick. I believe that all things are connected, so I strive to write about connections between Paganism, pop culture, science, and the arts. My work was published in the Ancestors of the Craft anthology and in Finding the Masculine in the Goddess’ Spiral.
