The Government Will Not Save You

(But you should vote anyway!) We live in uncertain and troubled times. Lies have replaced truth. Insults have replaced discussion. Anger has replaced kindness. Despair has replaced optimism. There is an election tomorrow in the UK. Vote. This election is more than just a choice between parties, it is a choice between hope and fear.... Continue Reading →

Political Druids?

"Vote for the future you want to see. Vote for what matters most to you. Vote like lives depend on it – because they do" - Nimue Brown. I was inspired by Nimue Brown's excellent post at Druid Life on Druidry and Politics (which you should go and read right now...I'll wait), to re-share my... Continue Reading →

Friday Foraging 22

It's been a week, folks! So, what hidden gems have I found in the Pagan blogging community this week?

While Wrycrow is a new venture for me, my previous blog, Endless Erring, racked up some 200-plus posts. Some of these... Continue Reading →

Trans Rights are Human Rights

Recently, there have been arguments in some corners of online Pagan space about the acceptance of trans people in Paganism, and the existence of a certain newly formed trans-exculsionary "Pagan" organisation. I have no interest in linking to them, because I don't want to have my site flooded with angry commenters, but a quick search... Continue Reading →
