I Made A Thing


Signal Boost for Kiya Nicoll’s calendar.

Originally posted on Peaceful Awakenings: Reflections of Egypt:

So, pursuant to a number of my projects, I have assembled a wall calendar using the current revision of my core festival calendar.

I kind of wanted to have it sorted for Wep Renpet but I failed at that, but hey, there’s enough time to order it before the new calendar year if you wanted that sort of thing.

Warning: month containing Great Festival of Min contains image of Min. ;) The preview button lets you click through the art I selected, though.

(Also, don’t get me started about the calendar editor program, I might have to swear a lot.)

(On a more personal note, getting back on the medication that actually treats my primary disabling medical condition rather than, y’know, on medication that keeps me semi-functional has done WONDERS for my gettingshitdone-ed-ness. May it continue to become!)

Kiya Nicoll has a great interview here. Please check it out!

I have done an interview with the Infinite Beliefs podcast! To give a listen to me pontificating, mosey over there and have a listen. (And at some point I need to pick up on the Agora again, augh.)

Since it’s linked there, this is as good a time as any to mention that I’m in the process of building a site for all of my endeavours, called Suns in Her Branches, and if you’re interested in stuff I do as a general category rather than just my recon-oriented research notes, that’s where that will be. I was hoping to finish the graphical customisation and get a non-half-assed landing page done before the podcast went up but that didn’t work out so well; there’s content there anyway, including an assortment of religious poetry if you’re into that sort of thing.

We are With You by JewelofAset

We are the Gods of Egypt

We are of the Nile and the Flood

We emerge and recede

We flow and change with the tides

We are of Egypt

We are of the Sea

We bring you to Us because We love you

Not to scare you

and not overwhelm you

But to be with you

You are still learning

You are okay, sweet child.

You are okay.

And you are still on your way.

Don’t worry, dear child.

We are with you all the way.

Will you get rid of Us?


Let these fears not consume you.

You are of Us.  We are your family.

Please don’t worry.

These fears will leave once you know who you are.

And conquer them through story and song; writing and ritual.

You will be okay, dear child.

You will be okay.

Darkness cannot win against the day.

Hymn to Sarapis by JewelofAset

All Hail Sarapis,

Lord of Dogs and Hounds

Baying at the Graves of the Dead.

Lord of Dance in ritual

Lord of decay

Lord of Life

Lord of Death.

Hounds baying at your heals

Run across the shore

Splashing into Your ocean

the Sea is Yours.

Your dogs race back to You,

as You part the seas

for Your Navigation.
