glass creativity

i’m in my prime,
not withering and old.
but i refuse to play
your wicked games any longer.

i know this tether is unbreakable,
but you make me feel like i’m interchangeable.
you drew a target on my heart,
when did this become fatal attraction?

i don’t have the strength,
the energy,
nor the patience
to be held hostage by your love.

so baby please don’t despair
when i say that
i’ve found the courage to
let you go.

you were never meant to be tied down in the first place.

It’s an opaque word, concrete. You describe it as iron gray, the most durable kind of solid — a substance worthy of building the upper limit. 

But I’ve always pictured it as a wilting rose, a pressed flower with a destined dead end. The point being: darling, at least you can see through a glass ceiling.

My first ever silk painting!!

I took a class this weekend with a lovely artist from Latvia. Her work was amazing! So excited that I could learn from her.

Silk painting is very similar to watercolors, in that it’s very hard to control and sometimes you just have to wing it haha. You can see a couple mistakes in my painting, but still it turned out really pretty for a beginner!

TO THE PAGANS IN A PINCH WHO CAN’T AFFORD FOOD TO THE DEITIES

Not everyone is so lucky to have food that they can make or give specifically to the deities. Sometimes, great financial burdens come upon us and we don’t even know when our next meal is, much less when we should give to a deity. There is nothing wrong with not being able to afford food for deities, and having to nourish your body first.

OTHER TYPES OF OFFERINGS

-Drawings, doodles, chicken scratches that are done with the intent of honoring the gods

-Some type of arts and crafts, like sewing, weavings, handmade jewelry or statues

-Play your favorite song that makes you think of them or make up your own. Your hands and voice are all you need to make music

-Poetry, stories, hymns and anything creative

-A glass of water. Consecrate and bless it, then offer it up to a deity

-Volunteer your time at places that would please that specific deity. Clean up the forests and sides of the road for Gaea, or the beach for Aphrodite, or help out at an animal shelter for Artemis.  

IF YOU’RE DEAD SET ON USING FOOD

Dedicate a meal or supper to them that you are eating. With every piece of food, tell the gods that you are dedicating this meal to them and eating it along side them, that as it nourishes you, so it nourishes them. It would be a good idea to see what foods they like and to try and get those types, if you can.
