There is so much that I would love to write about in here but right now I don't have the energy to do any justice to any of my "big" thoughts.

I completed my essay on The Church, patriarchy, how women can heal etc...still need a title...and to proof read and do the bibliography, but the miniscule 3000 are done. I can't wait to move onto higher levels of learning and be expected to write more than this because I have so much more to say!

So anyway, I gave myself the rest of the day off and went and did some errands with Robert and bought a Mother's day gift to give to Mum when I see her tomorrow and we got all crazy at the organics store. We want to buy things but don't have much money between us. :( Slowly though...

Thus far, I am not quite achieving what I want to do with this journal.
When time is slightly more available I will do many things here, but till then, Farewell.

The article is about the differences between the Traditional Witch and Wiccans.
It still begs a few questions for me but is a good springboard for the advancement of my knowledge.

Traditional Witchcraft as defined by this article is somewhat scathing of eclecticism. I am not entirely sure that I can agree with that on all levels but I understand the arguments against it. I somewhat believe that a wide knowledge-base of spiritual techniques in OUR global society and integration of them is not necessarily a bad thing, so long as one takes into consideration the origins, the reality and the culture of that said practice.

I practice Yoga. I would not stop practicing Yoga based only on this essay so I could say I am a Traditional Witch, which I am not claiming I am at all. I do however agree with a lot of the facets of this argument. I think I need to read it another time and pick it apart bit by bit, when I am not so busy.

The emphasis on Nature and the World not being all positive is something that resonates with me because it is true. Wiccans seem to deny the dark and I think that is pretty ignorant really. I do see value in seeking "light' too ofcourse but that is not all there is to reality.

More to come on this topic soon...

Lament yet Life [May. 7th, 2005|02:09 am]

I am saddened by the fact that I do not write as I used to. I was reading over my olde livejournal entries from a year or so ago and they are so beautiful! Pure Poetry! heh, now I am just being a wee, little, bit silly.

I don't know what is different. Maybe I have changed and am in less of a dream world and therefore have written very straightforward posts? Well, in relatively plain terms rather than the prose I used to submit.

I know that I have grown up a hell of a lot in the last year and have come to terms with that. I know that doesn't mean I have to sell out and stop being myself as I had feared for so long.


The early days of a new romance could have afflicted my writing style, I would say that I feel the same now as I did then but I would be lying. I do feel differently, I feel so incredibly much more for him. Perhaps because I know him so completely in what he will share with me, I do not possess the hypothesising and dreamy wonder in my mind of when we were less well acquainted.

Regardless of all this, I am going to regain my beautiful style, my lust for words and longing for vocabulary.

In so many ways my boyfriend has been and is my inspiration. He makes my mind tick in various ways, new and challenging, complex and creative.

Sometimes, I want to be a writer.
Academia could allow this, facilitate various foot-in-the-door scenarios.

I am thinking about doing Honours next year. I was going to do a Graduate Diploma, however, I am probably just delaying the inevitable by doing so. I can pick up fascinating History Books of my own volition.

The Greater Purpose! [May. 7th, 2005|01:32 am]

[mood |anew]

This journal has been created with very strict principles in mind.
  • This journal will be virtually unknown to anyone I know in real life with my Boyfriend being the one and only exception.
  • I will use it primarily for ranting, displaying articles of an aesthetic nature, facilitating my creative writing and other potential whimsy's that are not yet articulate in my mind.
  • I will also use it for participation in some of the more worthy communities that have evolved on livejournal. These are few and far between but like rubies when you find one!
  • This journal will have both private and public posts. Friends will be added if I think there will be mutual benefit acquired due to such an addition.
  • This will be a point of focus for me. Hopefully I will become more savy in my internet browsing and not so frivolous with how I waste my precious time.
  • At times, it may serve as a library in which I will store files whilst my own computer is out of commission and the visiblity of such usage will be adjusted accordingly.



Hopefully some other Live Journal users have a similar vision.
Leave me a comment if you desire friendship but until we meet, Adieu!
