Excerpted from "The Goddess Book of Psalms"
They call me heathen; I accept their title with joy.
They call me pagan, for I am of the earth Herself.
They say I am infidel, but I believe in things beyond their ken.
They call me heretic, for I cannot accept their ways.
They call me idolater, but I adore the universe around me.
They say I am a perversion, but I am Hers who was here before they came,
and when they have gone, I will yet be Hers.

Many of today’s most knowledgeable authors are in this appendix, and I’m very proud to announce that I am among them! Each author presents their own view of Leland, and his… Continue

I've just completed a Book Journal for publication. It's virtually a blank book, or, should I say, a book with blanks for you to fill in. The many pages include Books on Loan, Borrowed Books, Books on Order, and Wish List. The idea is to maintain a list of all the books you lend out to someone, the ones you borrow from someone (and that can include library books as well), the ones you ache to own, and those you've already ordered. There's also a section called My Favorite Books, in which you… Continue

It seems I'm so busy writing these days (and editing, and re-writing) that I have very little time for blogging. Add to that the fact that I keep forgetting where I parked my blog, and so I create a new one. So I have several blogs now, and it gets even tougher to keep up with them.
But enough about me!
Here's a bit of updating in case you wondered just what I've been up to these days:
I've now published six books, and I'm waiting for the art… Continue

These three lines from Charles Godfrey Leland’s book, Aradia: Gospel of the Witches, have been quoted and misquoted for over one hundred years:
In the original Italian:
61. Sarete tutti nudi, per fino.
62. Che non sara morto l'ultimo
63. Degli oppressori e morto,
Leland’s translation of those lines:
61. Ye shall be naked in your rites,
62. this shall last until the last
63. of your oppressors shall be dead;
The actual translation of… Continue
