Preface: As some who already know me are aware, part of the way I come to reckon/shape the regionalization of my practice is to fashion myths shaped by where I live. This is an example of that, and my first adaptation of a Kemetic myth, the story of Sekhmet’s vengeful assault on humanity. Since it’s relevant to my hearth practice, it seems worthy of posting here, so to any readers, enjoy.
I’ve been thinking about starting a blog for a while now, a few people have told me that I should, many others have told me “Oh Gods, please don’t.” The latter concerns have been pushed aside, because a blog post that I read today struck me as having missed the mark so badly that I could not remain quiet about it. Fair warning: I have no pretty pictures to share and my formatting is gonna be lackluster ’til I get used to this.
I am Hrafnblod, at least, that is the handle I’m known by on the internet, by and large. Those who frequent the pagan spheres of Reddit may be aware of me, others may not. We’ll see if that changes.
This blog exists for the same essential reason that any other blog exists: I needed somewhere to post shit. It will be updated irregularly, likely infrequently, and mostly when something gets my hackles up and I need to say my piece on a subject. This blog will be adversarial as often as not, perhaps more often than not, but I do hope that it can ultimately be constructive in its criticisms.
Sometimes I’ll probably post stories, myths and the like. Other times it’ll just be bitching. I’ve never taken a crack at this blogging thing before. Strap in, folks, it’s gonna be a… probably one of them lazy river rides, really.
