New Cascade Yarn

I want this so bad.

Baaad Anna's: not your mama's yarn store

We are totally loving the Cascade Eco Highland Duo this fall, with it’s 70% alpaca and 30% merino blend it is super soft to work with, and has some great drape and texture! This yarn is versatile and will make a great 1-skein project or also will work up into a lovely larger project like a shawl or even a sweater!

The skeins are 100g and 180m  (197 yards), we carry the entire line of natural shades – perfect for a gradient shawl project! We also have the natural blends, which knit up beautifully!

A Value in Syncretism

Beloved in Light

There is an inherent value in syncretism that I think is often overlooked. Syncretism doesnt mean that your worship of a god becomes one huge muticultural gobbity gook, but rather it is very effective way to develope a multi faceted understanding of your deity. That is to say, my understanding of my god is vastly expanded through syncretism. But this does not mean that my deity is necessary going to be subplanted with another.

For instance, Apollon as Rasheff brings a certain insight, as does Apollon as Horus ( though really I think the combined Horus and Seth to be more point on, so does my interpretation of Apollon as Shiva. But he is still Apollon. I may find myself happy to worship with followers of his other manifestations, but these other forms are not the ones that I live with so to speak. But it does have the benefit…

Latest “love song” from Himself. *dreamy sighs*

“Song For Someone”

You’ve got a face not spoiled by beauty
I have some scars from where I’ve been
You’ve got eyes that can see right through me
You’re not afraid of anything they’ve seen

I was told that I would feel
Nothing the first time
I don’t know how these cuts heal
But in you I found a right

If there is a light
You can always see
And there is a world
We can always be
If there is a dark
That we shouldn’t doubt
And there is a light
Don’t let it go out

And this is a song
A song for someone
This is a song
A song for someone

You let me into a conversation
A conversation only we could make
You’re breaking into my imagination
Whatever’s in there is yours to take

I was told I’d feel
Nothing the first time
You were slow to heal
But this could be the night

If there is a light
You can always see
And there is a world
We can always be
If there is a dark
Within and without
And there is a light
Don’t let it go out

And this is a song
A song for someone
This is a song
A song for someone

And I’m a long way
From your hill on Calvary
And I’m a long way
From where I was, where I need to be

If there is a light
You can always see
And there is a world
We can always be
If there is a kiss
I stole from your mouth
And there is a light,
Don’t let it go out

Names Don’t Matter, or: what to do when your god pokes around with your identity by poking around with His own

There are no words to describe how much this resonated with me. It’s breathtaking and amazing and…well just read it.

Strip Me Back To The Bone

A young girl is on her hands and knees at the water’s edge, keening into the sea. There is no other word for the sounds coming from her, the sounds of a spirit bound too tightly slipping its cage and splintering from the force of it. She feels herself shattering, and no amount of trying to hold on will stop the process. She is beyond fear, beyond worry, beyond hope. She has given over to this moment, and she is caught up in fury, in desolation, in these big, crushing waves of emotions that are too big, too wild, to be held back. Her spirit has tasted freedom and it will not return to its meager existence. Her spirit knows the depth and beauty of the worlds, and it calls out for rescue.

He comes clad in moonlight and darkness, in denim and leather, in flesh, bone, and magic. The…
