November Updates: Hello there!

Yes, I know it’s been a while since I’ve done a monthly update/newsletter thing, but, well, life happened and lots of change came with it…  The biggest change many of you already know: My Wife and I have left Switzerland and are in the process of moving to Ireland. The Wife is already there, setting […]

The Hermit: Spirits

“The center of our sphere is here, and I denote it with the coordinates zero, zero, zero. For this working, it is the center of all things. It has a radius, r, that is large enough to contain this Shrine and our working. I denote this sphere as the circle, and will bless it with […]

The Hermit: Dreams and Revelations

The tree towered above her. She looked up into the branches and could hear the Crows chattering among themselves. I always start here, she thought.  “Of course you start here,” said a deep rumbling voice behind her. Liz turned around to see a large, red-headed, bearded man with a big pot belly leaning casually on […]

The Hermit: Preparations

I cut off the braid in Katy’s hair just above the hair tie then held out the braid for her, and Noise-Maker, to see. Katy burst into tears. “Why is there water on your face?” the alien asked, concerned.  “It’s called tears.” Katy shook her head. “And I don’t know. I didn’t think I’d be […]

The Hermit: Visitor

“You should go back inside, Liz,” I said out loud to myself after a while. I knew I should, but I also didn’t want to have to face Noise-Maker and explain to them why I got upset. You could always just say it’s about stuff in the past and you don’t want to talk about […]

The Hermit: Morning

Noise-Maker turned out to be a heavy sleeper. I woke up around dawn from a dream where I was searching for something, but I couldn’t figure out what I was searching for. I rolled over, moved my legs to the side of the bed, and sat up. I rubbed the sleep from my eyes and […]

The Hermit: First Aid

I brought the alien into the sitting area of the cottage, moving the coffee table out of the way so that they had a clear place to sit. “Give me a minute to get my first aid kit,” I told them as they settled on the floor. I went to the pantry and found the […]

The Hermit: The Noise in the Woods

Author’s note: This is the first post of a serialized story called “The Hermit.” It’s primarily an experiment in writing about my own theology. This came about by request from several people in my Discords who wanted more information about my particular brand of spirituality. It’s also a way to challenge myself: this will be […]
