This is something new for me, computer funtional illiterate that I am. My hope is to do this to talk about what's going on with me, what's coming up (right now the big things are my annual Omega Institute weeklong class with Mary K. Greer, a monthlong art show at Omega, and my trip to Greece in October), and also just to share ideas and experiences.
Subjects here may range from Tarot, to fiction, the teaching of writing, sacred texts, fun books and cool movies, travel, music, and anything else. These are the kinds of things I can't do on the web site. Well, truth is, I can't do much of anything on the web site without someone else helping, but even if I could, well, you get the idea.
Maybe next time I will write something about my favorite books. Or the relationship of slavery to the Ten Commandments. Or weird Jewish myths. Like the Yemeni story where Eve has the Devil's baby –the Devil is called Samael in Jewish tradition–and then she and Adam kill the baby and eat it, and when Samael comes and asks where her baby is, Adam and Eve say "Baby? What baby? Did you see a baby?" until the child calls out from their bodies, and Samael says "Because you have taken my son into your hearts he will remain there forever, and the hearts of your children, and your children's children."
Or maybe I will talk about The See of Logos, the set of surreal fortune-telling cards I'm doing with the amazing artists of Magic Realist Press (creators of The Tarot of Prague, and the Fairytale Tarot). Or the short story collection I'm doing for Magic Realist, and perhaps what it's like to read work in progress to a writing group (we meet once a week and share our work–if you're a new writer, or experienced–I've published 28 books–a writing group is a great help).
Or maybe just Spring in the Hudson Valley, and walking with Wonder Girl, my sweet dog. As you can see, there are lots of possibilities.
