I’ve been getting a lot more traffic here lately thanks to Tumblr, and I welcome and appreciate all of my new readers and visitors.
But I’ve been getting busy lately. I have a lot of stuff going on in the next few weeks, and that with my job, I’m having trouble writing.
So I’m going to cheat.
I was fortunate enough to encounter the following on Tumblr:
Made for deuognatos but anyone is free to use it 🙂

This appears to be one of those “blog a day” thingers. I can answer a lot of these pretty briefly, so I’m thinking I’ll do three or four a day. When I get the chance, I’ll still be posting other stuff on top of this. But I think this is a good chance to tell a bit more about myself and my approach to magic, and it allows me to keep writing without straining myself too much to come up with material.
And as always, if you want to know anything about me or my practice, just ask. (There’s a link on my Tumblr for just that.) I will make an effort to answer all question I get, but sometime the answer may be “I’m not going to tell you about that.”
