More and more I believe that the question of whether polytheism is “true” (for whatever value of that word you like) is less important than the fact that it is both useful and beautiful… and in its beauty lies my hope that it will eventually return to save us all from the dominant paradigm.
Losing weight is really not as hard (for most people) as the people selling diet plans want you to believe. You just have to educate yourself and then pay attention – all the time.
I keep checking out (nonfiction) books that sound really interesting, only to discover that they would have been better as journal articles. This makes me cranky.
Is it possible to write about process theology without sounding like an over-educated twat?

Hand tools rock. Except for really big jobs like cutting down a large tree, I almost always prefer a non-electric option. This is not an ecological or political statement, just a soul-deep preference for appropriate pre-electric technology. In a related note, I just discovered that there is a modern sewing machine that is designed to attach to a treadle base (aimed at the Amish market) – this is extremely cool.
