Update

I have sent the Wepwawet book, Lord of Strength and Power to the formatters!  I decided to take the Anubis section  out since  I wanted  this to be just about Wepwawet.  I can send  the Anubis material to  Bibliotheca Alexandrina and see  if  they need  it.

I have also sent another poetry book to the formatters.  This is a companion  to Divine Words, Divine Praise.  It  has poems  to Athena, Athena and  Zeus, Athena and  Poseidon, Hestia, Hela, Hekate, Frigga, Hera and Zeus, and many Orisha (Oya, Yemaya, Oshun, Osanyin, Shango, Obatala, and Nana Buruku).  I’m calling it  Holy Words, Holy Praise.  I’m hoping to come up  with a better title.  It sounds pretentious to me.

Updates on Projects

In case you missed it, I have published Magician, Mother and Queen.

I have finished and am preparing to publish another poetry book. The title of this now is Divine Words, Divine Praise:  Poetry of the Holy Powers.  I have sent it in to the formatters.

I have sent in the permissions for Lady of the Sky: Ancient Hymns of the Goddess Aset from the Temple of Dendera.  We’ll see what they say.  I’m still waiting.

I have been compiling all the material for this book She Who Speaks Through Silence:  An Anthology of Nebet Het (Nephthys).  I am still waiting on some submissions. 

I am compiling a compilation of scholarly papers I wrote in Graduate school (and afterward) about various goddesses, Orishas and a saint (Mary); and I have one other essay about women’s healing and talismanry (I know it doesn’t fit, but I have no idea where else I could publish it.  I may take it out and publish it by itself. I’m not sure.).   I’m thinking of making this into another book.  My working title is Holy Lady, Holy Queen:  Papers on the Feminine Divine.

 

 

Personal Epiphany

I am learning throughout this time in my life where I am changing and shedding skin while making way for the new: There is so much more mercy, understanding and forgiveness than I could have possibly hoped for. I have more strength than I ever imagined.

I am loved by more people and spirits and Gods than I ever thought possible–and I am worthy of that love.

I am changing and growing. I am becoming someone new. I am becoming who I am. I am becoming myself.

I am not finished, yet the road is paved for me to walk. I travel on this road to embrace the star that is my soul.

May it become. Kheperu.

Hail the Gods and Goddesses of Egypt! Hail the Gods and Goddesses of Greece!
