…this website is still under construction. That said, welcome to all my readers! Over the next month or so, I expect to finish building and fine-tuning the site, with regular blog posts currently scheduled to start appearing right around the summer solstice. The menu links at the top of the page are already live, and mostly stocked — I have a few more of my nonfiction books to add to one page, and of course the next writing contest (yes, there will be a next writing contest) hasn’t yet been announced. Stay tuned for more details.
As noted in the posts I’ve made on my old blogs, the focus of this new venture is going to be a little different. I’ve said pretty much everything I have to say about the decline and fall of industrial civilization, the theme of The Archdruid Report, and as that process picks up speed around us, saying much more about it is kind of redundant anyway. I do have more to say about the magical traditions central to The Well of Galabes, and some of that will be said here. What I plan on discussing primarily, though, is the need to begin crafting a living spirituality of nature — not an abstract worldview, but a way of life with practical, spiritual, and esoteric dimensions — founded on a recognition of our belonging to the biotic community of the Earth. We’ll be talking about that in various ways and from assorted angles as this project takes off.
For the time being, I expect to do at least one post a month here, though we’ll see what happens when a range of other changes in my life settle out and I can buckle down to serious work. I’ve also established a presence on the social media site Dreamwidth — ecosophia.dreamwidth.org — which will carry shorter pieces such as book reviews, announcements of new publications, catcalls in the direction of absurd news stories, and the like. Those should start appearing during the next month or so.
Thank you again for reading this, and I hope you’ll join me on this new adventure!
