Feather Files: See the Rainbow

June 30, 2015

There are those that only see in black and white with occasional shades of gray.  There are those that see all the colors of the rainbow.  Which are you?  Where is your “vision” limited?  Where are you limiting yourself?  Open yourself up.  See the Rainbow.

 

This originated in a discussion about Monotheist and Polytheist viewpoints.  But even Polytheists have their fundies, their one-way-only people…

Daily Happenings: 6/21 – 6/27

June 29, 2015

Dear Blog Reader,

What you see on my blog is a meager slice of my life.  Do not presume that you know who I am by what you find here.  As much as gets written down, much more happens that does not.  My journal blogs are mostly for me and the few people that truly want to know what I do on a daily basis.  This is my space, read or not as you please; just don’t lecture me on what I should or should not post.  I find writing cathartic and so do a lot of ranting  and whining, especially in these Daily Happenings posts.

Warning:  rants by definition are not based on logic.  Writing down my rants helps me to clean out the ol’ brain pan so that I can find a solution to whatever is bothering me at the moment. Yes I have friends I could lay this stuff on instead, but maybe I don’t want to clutter up their brain pan or bother them when they have their own issues.

Spiritually, I’m still trying to find a steady rhythm on my daily devotional (DD) practice. Right now I do a little something as it strikes me, no formal ritual.  Occasionally been doing short meditations and I always end the day with thanks in front of my shrines.  Prayers, as always, before bed unless I’m ill.

of Isis and Mary Magdalene

June 11, 2015

There is a theory that Mary Magdalene’s story is very much the retelling and embroidering of the tale of Isis.  I know I find Mary’s story every bit as compelling as that of my mother Isis.  If I had had access to Gnostic Christianity, I’m not sure I would have become Pagan as my leaving Christianity was due to the fact that women have no place other than under the feet of the men.

Cinderella shoes: Why I, in my oversized body, said FUCK IT to the world

June 3, 2015

Aj / Melia:

“Too long we’ve been told to keep our horizons near, and our world small.
Too often we’ve believed it when we’ve been told what we supposedly can’t do.
The combination of being told to keep ourselves small and being told to appease others is deadly.

It’s time we all said Fuck It to the world, and made some noise. Because, by doing so, we might just discover who we truly are.”

Originally posted on Aphrodite Rises:

I’m a big woman. Not fat, not wobbly (which would be an entirely different sin of its own).

Just big.

I’m nearly six feet tall. I’m broad-shouldered, big-boned, and long-limbed.

There was absolutely no point in my life that I was not going to be large. Genetics decided that for me.

I take up space, which apparently in our society is a crime worthy of punishment if you’re a woman.

Because, in case you hadn’t noticed, we women are supposed to be small. Underweight, taking up no space, not making any noise or having any opinions. We’re supposed to be pretty, according to a very narrow definition of pretty.

Women are not supposed to eat. Women are not supposed to eat.

The first time I was told I was too tall I was about 12. A guy I liked said I would be pretty if I wasn’t so huge. I was about an inch taller…
