So, as I illustrated in my latest Dream Journal entry, my practices and reverences are no longer exclusively Hellenic, and if Hellenism can even be applied as a dual-trad is arguable.
This leaves me wondering what I’m doing about this blog, besides leaving up the archives, as I realise that some people continue to use several articles I’ve written for this blog to be invaluable to their own understanding of Hellenism, and polytheism in general.
The thing is, the WP blog that I’ve currently set to Default on my phone app is focused more on my music and the updates about that, some occasional thoughts about my creative process, maybe some art and writing updates (cos I will finish my currently-unfinished novels); not that there’s anything wrong with that, but it would feel awkward, at least right now, to put too much of my spiritual exploration on that one, cos even though many of my own musical influences have been influenced by paganism and the occult, for me, at this exact time, it’s a little awkward, cos I’m still feeling out how exactly my own process is influenced by the deities I’m forging a relationship with.
To say that I’ve often been found asking myself “What Would Genesis Do?” wouldn’t be inaccurate. And just to run with my use of Them as my example, the answer is regularly:
I don’t know.
I do think, at least for now, that I may start to gradually bring more spiritual topics into the other blog, and I will probably cross-post that here, just cos this blog has the bigger audience, and cross-posting to promote the newer blog is just good strategy.
But that aside, what newer pieces, if any, will be posted here, instead?
Well, I have a few of my own paintings that I now feel it is inappropriate for me to keep, so I do have a sales post in my Drafts folder. One has already been spoken for, and there are four that can only go to the right person or people, but the rest can be sold.
But, beside that?
I guess, for now, if anything new will be posted here, “we’ll see.”
I do not want to disappoint anyone, and I assure you that I will keep the archives up, as I still regularly see a couple “resource and information links” lists making the rounds on Pagan Tumblr that have a couple of my pieces here, and I do still feel like I owe it to the polytheist community, as I still stand behind practically everything I’ve ever posted here – there’s nothing wrong with it, I just don’t exclusively belong to the Hellenic pantheon, anymore (if at all, I’m still figuring out that precise message, but it needs to take time).
Sometimes, that just happens – we reach a fork in our spiritual path, and we can take one direction or another, but both directions are fated their own consequences, and we have to accept them.
