Winter Gods

I know that technically it is spring, but the weather has been bordering on bitter cold–more like winter than spring.

And I’ve done some extensive chronicling on it, so there’s lots related to read up on. I won’t rehash it all. Besides, that would make boring reading, when […]

Slavic Devotion (Part III)

How does one begin to build up a devotional practice with limited sources & options? That’s the million dollar question, really. I’m not going to say I’m any kind of expert, because that would be a lie. But, I guess from a certain perspective I’ve got some real insight into it (which is weird, but […]
