So there's a big hoopla in the blogging world about veiling. First, I'd like to say its not something I'd do myself. I don't work with Hestia which seems to be the common Goddess (Though certainly not the only Goddess) most veiled Pagans are honoring. But I guess its also pounded into my mind that those that veil are either Jewish or Islamic. It's just my first thought when I see a woman with a veil. I do get why they would feel more empowered though. I often wear a circlet with crystals during magickal works. While it's not exactly a veil, the weight of it on my head and hanging into my third eye brings me more power and focus.
But enough of that topic, on to my crafty adventures.
Though I was uninspired by my blog posts this past weekend, I did find the time to work on my fictional writing. Last October I put together a short story named Dragon Love for Samhain. This coming Samhain I'll be releasing the second part to the story. I know its early yet, but I'd like this second part to be a little bit more thought out. I'm just working on the outline so far, but I'm excited to see what my heroes and heroines are up to! I've got my work cut out for me. I think I'll be delving into the Dragon kins past a bit and exploring the origin of the stones used to make the amulets. It's guaranteed to be very witchy and filled with steamy romance.
Over the weekend I visited with Inanna's Spiritual Center. The center opened late last year so there is still a lot of growing to do, but I'm happy to report that the center has ordained it's first members. I was there for the happy event. Congrats to Rev. Darlene Barker and Rev. Kyle Shanks. I know both will do great works for the Chillicothe community.
Lynn, who owns and operates Inanna's has asked for some brainstorming ideas on how to get the world out and raise funds for the center. Unfortunately the storefront isn't doing well. We all know any business in its first year is a make or break year!
There's a lot of things on the docket that will help out. Pagan Pride Day may be hosted by Inanna's this year. But that isn't happening immediately. So I've suggested we do a psychic fair. Lynn loves the idea, and since it is my idea she's asked I help out. Problem is, I've never hosted an event!
I know Lynn is looking into advertising on the radio. She doesn't believe paper advertisement will be effective, though flyers will go around. And of course networking on Facebook.
Any other ideas? I'd love to hear them!
