Yesterday, not even 24 hours after Senator John McCain passed, I posted the following on Facebook: So, here’s my dilemma: The queer politics nerd in me agrees with all the folks posting about John McCain’s horrid politics of recent years (including inflicting Sarah Palin on national politics and healthcare). However, the priest in me, who […]
I’ve had with most of you. Especially those of you who sit there and argue with the very people this government is marginalizing and harrassing. That we should “get along and be nice” because somehow that’s going to magically fix everything. The time for politeness passed many months ago. Sorry, that’s just how it is. […]
It’s a gloomy, rainy day here in Chicago, and it seems rather fitting that today. So many Ancestors in so short of time. I’ve already done my rituals: lit candles and incense. But today I feel the need to write about them and what they meant to me. A little less than two weeks ago, […]
As of today, we will be leaving the US for Zurich, Switzerland on July 27th! EEEEPPP!!! The best bet for getting in touch with either of us after July 15 is to email, text, or Google Hangouts. (My regular phone number will work until I get a new sim card there.) OMG!!
So, we now know we need to be in Zurich for August 1, so that means we’ll be leaving at the end of July. We still have a lot of stuff to get rid of, but it looks like we might have an apartment already! It’s a lot smaller than here, of course, but it’s […]

You’ve got the usual spread of folks who don’t believe it, folks who do, […]
The biggest question I get as a pastor and priest, and a multi-faith person, is “How do you reconcile your Christianity with Wicca?” The quick and confusing answer is: I don’t. The more detailed and hopefully less confusing answer is this: When I was in seminary, I came to a point where I realized that […]
The weather is changing. The weather here in Chicago is much different from the Bay Area. The cold actually surprised me. It’s been a long time since I’ve felt real cold. This is the beginning of the cold that bites your cheeks, making you run for the covers and some hot chocolate. The cold also […]
Hail to the Ancestors! Hail to the Beloved Dead! May the next year be blessed! (And on a side note: It’s a strange feeling to be celebrating Samhain again where it actually gets cold! Might have to break out my striped socks when I dress up later!)
