I love Sannion and it hurts me when people talk shit about him. I also can’t understand why anybody would want to in the first place. He’s one of the wittiest, most intelligent, and–yes–most decent human beings I know on the Internet. I don’t mind that he can sometimes be a misanthrope because I can totally understand why anybody would feel that way these days. But, you know what, he still does actual shit for us and he’s done a great deal of service to the Gods in his life, most of which not too many of us are willing or capable of doing.
I’ve been pretty mum about what’s been going on in the online Pagan community in the sense that I don’t blog about it and I don’t comment on the issues wherever they’re discussed. I’ve really only been concerned about what I do for my beloved deities and spirits and how I can translate that devotion into writing (and beautiful pictures) whenever I have the time. I guess, that’s not such a bad thing, eh? So, I hope you can all forgive me for not participating in Silent July. I respect the people who are participating in it and I do believe in the cause. It’s just that, right now, I sort of need the Internet and my blogs to re-evaluate my life.
I pray for Silent July’s success. I will be right here until y’all return.
