Apparently, I’m on hiatus. I’ve started and deleted a bunch of posts recently. I can’t think of anything interesting to say that I haven’t already written about.
Blogging is a funny thing. I post, and I hope that people are interested. My last couple of posts seemed to have fallen flat. Honestly, I knew when I was writing them that they would.
It’s funny, I know that if I put “witchcraft,” “depression,” or a few other words in the title, I will get views and comments, and truthfully, there have been times I’ve done that on purpose. If one spends hours writing, and you get very few views or relatively little feedback, it’s maddening.
I’m trying to de-stress. My stress level has been sky high. So high, I’ve made myself ill, and am sitting here with a acute case of arthritis. I’ve been ill for days. Actually, I’ve been ill for a month.
It’s all too much. I’m leaning toward giving up Paganism, because I’m exhausted trying to find a path that makes me feel like I did in February 2004. In those days, Yahoo groups celebrated Wicca. Today, most blogs on “professional” sites like Patheos are busy judging the way others live their paths. Everybody but the authors seem to be doing it wrong.
Why worry about this? Why not just chuck it all and live happily on a daily basis without people telling you your way of practicing faith is totally wrong?
One thing I won’t do. That would be coming on here to tell you why I’m quitting Paganism. First and foremost, you don’t care, and secondly, it seems smug. If I was a high profile Pagan, that might be a different story, but clearly, I’m not.
So I’m on hiatus. Thanks for reading.
