I’m Not Dead, But I’m Not Here

Hello, all!

I’m only popping in here to tell you, that if anyone still has any interest in what I’m up to, or my writing and what-not, then the best only place to do that, is on my Patreon page.  It sure would be nice to see you there.  Check out my Courtesy Tier (and the others), but I will occasionally still post publicly.

Take care, dear readers.  I’ll miss you.

With Love,
Columbine

Seems Like This Is It

Hello, friends.  I’m just coming here today to let everyone know that I will likely not be returning to this blog, at least not in the near or far future.  For those of you who do not know, I have had an issue with an online stalker for about eight years now.  Basically, since the day I debuted this blog, some random person who does not even know me, has had it in for me.  Over these years, the attacks on my various email and social media accounts have gotten to the point where I no longer wish to interact with anyone.  So, you all get to keep my past posts, since I’m not closing the blog down completely, but there won’t be any new content for some time, if at all.

I really appreciate everyone who ever found value in what I do, or what I’ve written.  I appreciate all the wonderful conversation, and the friends and acquaintances I’ve met.  But I can’t do this anymore.  The constant harassment is too much, and now I have to choose my mental health and peace of mind.  I have locked down or deleted all of my social media, and will not be accepting any new persons on my lists.  I have also removed the Divination Services page from this blog.  I don’t have it in me with all of this going on.

So, congratulations to whomever orchestrated this.  You’ve finally pushed me out of the community.  Well done.

An Evocation of Apollon

O Lord, Whose presence reverberates throughout the wind and the air;
Lord Who is felt in the vibration of all sound, come forth, if it pleases You to do so!  Hear this mortal voice, Lord, and know that I/we have arrived to greet You here!

I/we whom You have nurtured, Lord, and trained in many arts; I/we who have honored You dutifully, have again come to be taught in the ways of the truly free mind!

Lord of the boundary between thought and word, Lord of Masterful Unraveling, from Whom no lie can be hidden, Apollon of the Orthos Logos, come!  Be welcomed here, O Lord, Who breathes fire and life and triumph into the souls of all who would receive Your Word!

Apollon, Who is the Kind Mentor, and the Firm Instructor, rest here, that I/we may be seated before Your Radiance in reverence and curiosity!  And take refreshment (Libation is poured), dear Lord, before I/we commence, that Your thirst may be quenched, and I/we am/are prepared to receive the wisdom You so generously impart!

Be welcomed, O Lord, and let me/us once more be revealed in the presence of Your Divine Word!

Come, Most Blessed Lord!

Blessed Pythias’ Day!

Hail to Apollon!  Hail to the Pythias!

In my household, the first day of November is celebrated as Pythias’ Day, wherein we honor those women who were Apollon’s Oracles at Delphi, in antiquity.

The traditional offerings (in accordance with my family’s traditions) for this day are olive oil, honey, milk, water, and cinnamon incense, along with a tall pillar candle as a focal point to represent them, as a whole.  And lastly, a new perfume.  However, this year I had to forgo the perfume for budgetary reasons.

Taken together, these are an offering that I find profound in their simplicity.  The Pythias crave their recognition.  More so than any of us claiming their title for ourselves, they demand real recognition for their work and devotion, and so long as we give that to them, I find that they are at peace.

So, praise to them, and Blessed Pythias’ Day.

Within the Center: A Meditation of Apollon’s Domain

Another entry into my audio library, but also for the Treasury of Apollon.  I wanted to do a more ambitious video, but I did not have the patience required for that.  Not today.  So, you’ll have to settle for two audio tracks, instead of two audio tracks plus pictures.  <3
