It was with great sadness that we learned of the passing of the
Bonewits, who died after a long battle with cancer. He was
60 years old. He was the founder of ADF,
a writer, blogger, and an inspiration to myriads of Neo-Druids,
including those of us in the Reformed
Druids of Gaia. He will be greatly missed by all of us. Like
Obi Wan Kenobi, I believe he will be greater in death than he
was in life, as his books and writings will live on for millennia
is from Oberon
Zell's Facebook page:
send love, peace, and healing to Phaedra. She's totally devastated.
She told me that she finally found her true soulmate, and was
looking forward to a long life of companionship with him - as
MG and I have had. And to have him taken from her so soon - she’s
shattered. And of course, there is Isaac’s son, Arthur,
who ...has grown into a fine young man. And now to lose his father
just as he is coming of age…"
I'm addicted to Farmville.
I play every day, sometimes, well, many times, more than once.
Most of the players in my group are Pagan and many are Druids.
So it comes as quite a shock to me that many of my fellow players
don't reflect Pagan values in their farms. "It's just
a game," you might say. Is it 'just a game?'
I personally try to reflect my Pagan values, towards the environment,
towards animal justice, etc., in my farm. For example, I limit
my animals to barns, and don't try to assemble as many as possible
into as small a space as possible. I also allow the ones I have
outside of barns to walk freely. It's a lot less profitable that
way, but I think much more rewarding to exercise one's spiritual
values even in a virtual world. Of course, as always,
game I started is Frontierville,
another game by Zynga offered
to the Facebook community.
The object here is that you are building a frontier town in the
old west. I only lasted about two weeks, as the game kept insisting
that I clearcut the trees on my little property. As a Druid I
just can't do that, so I quit.
has decided to throw us all under the bus, and enter into an unholy
alliance with Verizon, I've decided I can no longer support Google.
As of now my blog, "Views
From the Redwood Coast" has now moved to a Wordpress
blog on mithrilstar.org.
I will also be gradually eliminating all of my other Google accounts
as well. I hope you will join me.
the FOREST be with you always,
And may you never thirst for the waters of life.
