Trigger Warning: this will likely only appeal to Palæolithic Enthusiasts or fans of the mighty Architect. And Agent Rick, whom I'm sure enjoys being brain-raped weekly. By me, your host. I digress.
Something of an Ode to Our Lady of Dordogne, the Venus of Laussel and all her hypostases in the Palæolithic world. How I think she bridges the gap to Asatru (and other) today, and maybe why Scarlet should frankly give a damn. Or not. Whatever floats your boat or sinks your dinghy. Links for the autistic are enclosed. Drink the Horn, bigot.
Come with me now to Seax's gallery of the obtuse! In today's instalment of things not many other people think about but me is...
Goddess of... [drumroll] let's find out. Or not. You won't know until you open me. And even then, who knows? Trigger warning for man-babies, grownup words are used.

My thoughts on giants in history. (UPG.) I've kept as best I can to an Asatru line. Eat it. Eat it ALL. Or not. Boats and dinghies.
Musings on trying to become my own Greenman in light of my few firmly held convictions. Hail to thee, Mother Earth!
This is a time suck, be warned. I've injected a lot more grey matter into this than other things. What follows is some exegesis of mine. An attempt to untangle my own gut feelings from scholarship I've read, and to try and put things together again. This is all unverified personal gnosis, for those familiar with the terms. From a perspective which waxes Teutonic, I have tried to balance what speaks to me from Celtic and to a greatly diminished return Hellenic culture in my quest to integrate Goddess and God into my life. My belief that the Pantheon is hypostatic, and Life as a superorganism constitutes a brahmanesque monad in which polarity creates dynamism. But how, at least for us in the mortal coil, the Fertility Cult is the oldest and I think most sensible place to look for the Divine.
A review of a book by Jean Markale, tracing the footsteps of the oldest Goddess(es) of civilisation till now. Special care is taken to point to a common ancestral Goddess shared between Europe and the Near-East, and potentially (ancient) America. I've filed this under highly recommended.
A somewhat fluid brain-dump about Esoteric Chivalry, gender relations, Paganism and progress. Bonus: Bog Posting - FUN!
Coming soon: The Bog Song, a technicolour experience.
