By which I mean, not anything profound about death and rebirth or any such, but simply that I've brought back a couple of my favourite soaps.
I'd originally intended to produce a whole line of Japanese-inspired soaps, most of which didn't wind up working, but the Green Tea Citrus
soap was a definite… Continue

So a couple weeks ago I blogged about writing without fear
, and then promptly went back to the same sort of stuff I've been writing for two years now.
I blame Riley
But here's a bit of what I was talking about. Over the month of December I participated in Reverb10

I'm pretty sure I met Kenton Stiles of Twig Soup
at some craft show or other back in Colorado -- but it's been so long I plain don't remember. Kind of embarrassing but that's how the world works (and this is why I'm trying to catch up on my backlog of people to feature) so I'll just get on with the meat of it.…

Hello all who will read this! Many things have happened in the last year... Most importantly I am in the process of buying a house in Warren, Ohio. Although it is small and cluttered due to the amount of business stuff we have at the moment, it is a house and the utilities are on, even if we are a bit behind at this time.
This Winter my Mentor Johan passed, this is a very… Continue

A consideration, in list form, of some of the things I saw on this trip and didn't stop to take pictures of.
- Chickens (photo courtesy of Andrea of the Manor of Mixed Blessings).
- My nephew (fortunately my sister took plenty).
- Most of my family.…

Momma said she's eaten too much ham to be able to write anything, so she asked me to post for her.
Oh, I'm Loiosh! I'm Momma's Vice President of Marketing. Here's a picture of me:

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law
Over the past 10 years I have been attempting to discover more of my True Will, that essential Purpose and Direction in my Life, through Self-Discovery and Self-Knowledge, as well as through the Expression In Liberty of the True Will, or That, that I understand to be my True Will.
Back around 2000 I started feeling a Drawing, an Attraction to the Ordo Templi Orientis, O.T.O.… Continue

...at least for me, and I think most everyone has a holiday of lights of some sort around this time of year. And now that I'm in Tennessee, I'm close enough to my family that I can make it back to Pennsylvania for the holidays. It's been far too long.
So Om Shanti Handcrafts will be closed, starting today, for the next week or so. I'll let you know when I'm open for business again. I'll be taking the time to visit family, relax, and get caught up on things I haven't managed to do… Continue

Just staying above water for now.
This December has been up and down, but mostly down and Mercury Retro is living up to its potential. I lost a family member earlier this month rather suddenly and unexpectedly. On the other hand, we now have family home for the holidays. Its bittersweet and the house is busy. I am not in a financial position to do Christmas shopping for anyone. I did pick up a box of Holiday cards so I think almost everyone is covered in that department.
