Welcome to your weekend!
It’s Fab Five Friday when you get to see five of my favorite things this week. Enjoy!
Tunes: This week I discovered a new single by Shinedown! This one is Cut The Cord. Amazing! Go give it a listen. Maybe you prefer to wind down. In that case check out Are You On Your Way by Middle Class Rut.
Fund This!: Diana Paxson is a well known author in Paganism, Heathenry, and fiction. She’s among the leadership in the Troth and Hrafnar. Diana will be speaking at the Parliament of the World’s Religions! Diana is a leading voice making Polytheism – especially Germanic – a valid and respected spiritual option. This is a wonderful opportunity to gain more ground! Diana and her team are using crowdfunding to cover the expenses involved with the conference. Your donation would help! You can help Diana make this a reality by donating on her campaign.
My Favorite News: I’ve been reading the amazing blog Rune Soup for years now. Gordon White never fails to deliver great material and challenge the status quo in every matter. I’ve asked him to write a book for quite a long time. You can see our discussion on the matter in the comment section of many of his blog posts. It seems he’s finally listening to me and the many others who believe he belongs in print. Gordon announced not one but TWO books scheduled for release!!! Go reserve your copies today. Pre-order. Go ahead. I’ll wait.
Help!: The Prairie River Network is calling out for help with a petition. The Illinois government keeps making budget cuts. The conservation budget for soil and water in Illinois has already suffered 70% cuts since 2002. This is a dire situation that needs addressed. Our waterways are like the veins and arteries in your body. They are the lifeblood of Earth. These rivers and streams are the source of our drinking water. Conservation efforts must be funded. Please sign the petition!
Sign the petition and send a screenshot to me at Lonnie@TarotHeathen.com and I will give you a Tarot Reading for $10. That’s a huge discount! This offer stands until Friday, September 18th. That’s one week from today. Take action!
Did You Know?: There really are scientists out in the world trying to answer harder questions about consciousness, dreams, and near death experiences. Skeptiko is a great place to hear scientists and researchers taken to task on their findings and claims. One of the best recent shows should be of interest to all you dreamers out there. Can dreams really predict death? What about seeing people in dreams only to discover they died a couple weeks before your dream? Go have a listen! Be prepared for some amazing discoveries!
