    Interview With Anujj Elviis & Review of Indian Traditional Wicca

      Review of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Bright Blessings, film lovers! This time I am reviewing a series Netflix has done three seasons of, and I have been told, are at least doing a fourth- The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. It’s supernatural fiction about Sabrina, a half human who has to come to terms with her powers, and decide how, or IF she will use them. She gets a lot of pressure from family and mentors, all of whom seek to mold her THEIR way. Sabrina is not having it. Surprisingly mature and responsible for a teenager, she, along with family and friends, navigates the treacherous, and blissful world…

    Celebrating the Old Ways in New Times

    Celebrating the Old Ways in New Times for February 2020 Bright Blessings! I write this on January 10. We’ve not had a real winter yet in my hometown, but my garden is sad. We have decided to gear up to list this place for sale, and that means I had to start dismantling my garden. My patio garden I worked years on. All of it has to go. Friends wanted my soil, and came with tubs to fill with the black, rich loam, and then toted away all my pots, stakes, tomato cages, and even my roses. Another friend came to take the box away today. I have another box…

    Book Review – Unholy Alliance: A History of Nazi Involvement with the Occult by Peter Levenda

    Book Review Unholy Alliance A History of Nazi Involvement with the Occult by Peter Levenda 464 Pages   Bright Blessings, readers! My editor offered this book, and I JUMPED at it! As a daughter of Odin, I have spent time speaking with plenty of different Heathens who come from a plethora of groups and belief systems, and let me tell you- there is a very strong influence from Nazi Germany even in modern Heathenry. I feel it is extremely important to be aware of this, and know the difference between genuine devotion to the gods, and devotion to being a racist. So, I was over the moon to hear I…

If you are like me, January is a welcome break from the hubub that started late Fall and lasted until New Years! So, let me say again HAPPY JANUARY. One thing I like a break from is listening to people complain about how something or another holiday related offends them.

      Review of Little Miss Sumo   Bright Blessings, Film lovers!   I’ve always been a huge fan of Sumo Wrestling since watching the first match on TV I ever saw of it. In a country- America- where sports fans and athletes tear each other apart, and get into fights on the playing fields- it is downright refreshing to me to see the courtesy, pride, and poise Sumo Wrestlers exhibit. I have never seen a more polite, or regal sport. Tonight, I learned something about it, though. Traditionally, Sumo is for men only- but for many years, many little girls and women around the world have done Sumo wrestling, although…
