Wow, the world is a lot lighter today. . .

A few weeks ago, I created a page specifically for ariansdreams, so that she could check out the opening and closing of the Gates as I do it in solitary ritual. I think I'll also submit it to Oak Leaves.

I submitted a number of items to Oak Leaves and began another essay. I've gotten responses on some of my GSP work (some of which was rejected, though small changes will fix most things). I spent a quiet week actually getting things done on a personal level for a change.

Tomorrow, I'm giving a presentation to PSA about Creating Magical Entities, and recommending strongly against the book Creating Magickal Entities, which just isn't very well written, isn't very basic and isn't very advanced; weirdly, though, it's also not very in the middle. I can actually say a lot about what it isn't, but very little about what it is.

Speaking of presentations, I'm also giving a fun presentation at Desert Magic on amulets. I've been doing some shopping for materials (because everyone is going to get to take one home) and finding some really good ones. I'm also finding good examples, and I really like to talk about amulets. Did you know that the words "amulet" and "omelette" are related? They are!

I'm very, very much looking forward to Desert Magic. Spending the time in the desert is one of the highlights of the year for me, and the company is better every year, and this year promises to be no different (and maybe even better than before in aggregate). :) druidkirk has me back in the stables, which amuses me to no end, but at least it's air conditioned. I'm really looking forward to that pool that's always at 90° F.

I sent packages across two oceans today, one with a final destination in Korea and the other destined for England. I love to mail packages. . . More are being created and put together.

I'm kinda floating right now, mostly because I'm really happy, and really relaxed. The stress of the past two weeks is. . . gone. . . More stress is coming, but not yet.

I think I'll take my shoes off and go walking this weekend. . . And put up my hammock, drain & refill the hot tub, and get those margaritas flowing.
