From Gersande: An essay on the importance of art-making, creation, and magic and the geographies and places those works are born from.
A review of Laurie Anderson's Heart of A Dog, and the questions it poses: the hierarchy of relationships - and the role pets play in our lives.
Culture, religion, politics, ethics, art, personality, spirit… it’s all interconnected and mutually-influencing. As much as we sometimes like to examine them separately, they do not exist separately. We can use this holistic vision to wield a healing magic and to become culture-weavers who influence society to bring balance where it is needed.
From Kadmus: "What these gods offer us is an experience, not a symbol, and it is an experience from which our relationship with the other gods takes its source."
The book description tells me it's about magical work and a journey, seeking a form of the Tibetan Tara mixed with Morgan Le Fay. Tara Morgana reads like a magical journal, too personal to have much meaning for most readers. Except, I think it was written for me, right now, as an offering, gift, encouragement.
From Kadmus: "For magic to escape its solipsism and art to escape its self-indulgent immediacy each must wed themselves to a goal that goes beyond the individual. This is the Mega Golem."
