We’re four days away from the Polytheist Leadership Conference, wherein I will supposedly give a presentation on Regional Cultus in Contemporary Polytheism. And all I can say is: there had better be whiskey.
…because I haven’t really slept in two weeks, as I’ve been doing non-stop care of the 28 Miracles and in near constant dialog with my god Sabazios — and other closely related deities and spirits — in response to this unexpected shift. As I said before, this shit is game-changing. But more on that later.
At the Conference I will be, at some point or another, announcing two or three important and new things. The circle(s) of folks who are “in” on any one of those things is very small, and those people should take this moment to silently gloat and feel very important. If you also want to feel important, you should attend the Conference, buy me a drink, and attempt to get me to spill the beans with plied alcohol offerings (or really fine cigars — I like them dark and complicated, and expensive) prior to my announcements. Barring that, you should STILL come to the Conference, because the announcements will be made there before they are made anywhere else, and so you can feel special for hearing that shit right there at ground zero. Like special pre-release trailers for hit films shown at comic-book conventions before they officially air. (Sadly, there will be no video accompaniment with my announcements.)
Otherwise, though, stay tuned here in the next week or two for those announcements made more publicly and in elaborated form.
Also at the conference, my House will be offering several options of divination (including work with a living oracular raven*), possibly some of our healing rites, and private spiritual consultation as scheduling allows. Donations from these and any other offerings (stay tuned) will be divided between care of the 28 Miracles of Sabazios and a suitable charity or two (to be announced).
Because fuck yeah.
It’s a damn fine time to be a Polytheist.
