The Future (And A Request)
As 2017 begins, I find that I’ve come to a place in my life where I think I’ve said most of the useful things I could say regarding spirit-work and devotional polytheism (at least, to a general audience), and it feels like the right time to put this blog on an indefinite hiatus.
My plan is to collect the best of what I’ve written since publishing Dwelling on the Threshold and release a second book of my essays (hopefully before spring), and then remove many of the old posts from this blog – directing those who wish to read my work to my books instead. A Forest Door will remain, however, as a repository for some of my more important and popular posts, and as a way to keep offering my cartomancy services and any other small things that might come up. So I may make brief announcements here or there, and please do keep subscribed if you want to receive those. As always, my various specific projects and other blogs can be found at BirdSpiritLand.com.
But, before I go – I thought it might be interesting to see if there were any questions or topics any of you had that might spark a few final posts, anything I might have not covered over the last 6 or 7 years or that I could expand upon. So please, comment to this post with any suggestions, questions, etc. on Hellenic polytheism, polytheism or animism in general, spirit-work or spirit relationships, mysticism, trancework, oracles/divination, localizing practice, Dionysos, entheogens, animal bones, liminal magic, or anything else in my wheelhouse. I can’t promise I’ll write on your topic, but I’ll consider all suggestions.
Thank you all so much for reading A Forest Door, especially those of you who have been with me from the beginning (and even before, on Yahoo lists and Livejournal!), and to those who have purchased my books and services and helped support me in my work. I hope my writings have been helpful to you.
