At last! After a month of various technical problems we finally can post the show recorded about a month ago. Sorry for the delay folks, you know, "Computers. Can't live with 'em. Can't afford to trash them the minute they start messing up!" Oh well enough of this rant ,,,
In this show Fox and Arrowind kick off a conversation loosely based around their ideas about Animism by talking about a few of the spiritual connections between them and their pets. We talk about pets as familiars and then move on to discussions about the spirit we see in many things. We are all made of the same "star stuff" and if we respect the spirit in even the inanimate things in our lives I just tend to think things run smoother all around. If we respect that which is around us it also seems to make it easier to love and respect ourselves. I think.
There is no Podcast of the Week this week as we used the time to remember the late, great Issac Bonewitts. Issac was more than just a mentor, he was a figurehead. I think he will always be remembered in much the same way that many of the other founders of alternative spirituality have been. I certainly will bear his teachings and good humor through my life and will always be grateful. Thank You Issac, May your journey be all that you ever wanted.
Fox has been kind of isolated lately and has been feeling the pressures of being a stay at home Dad and homeschool educator. I haven't been out much or seen many friends. It just goes that way sometimes. But I remember that they are indeed there as I, even in my weird state of mind, am there for them. The cold winter months are approaching. Lets keep each other warm in the embraces of our friendships and our community can be a beacon in the dark world of just how wonderful a community of friends can be.
