About this Journal While I do sometimes post publicly, for the majority of the time, I post f-locked entries. This means that I have to add you to my list of friends, in order for you to access my posts. I have several filters in place, so that you don't have to read certain things unless you want to. Filters: Spiritual, Fandom, Writing, Politics.
Some of the topics you will encounter here are ... work, artistic creations, books, films, rants, health, spiritual musings, epic fails, hobbies, gaeilge, memes, gardening, writing, photos, fandoms, environmentalism, web design, quotes, and random geekery.
Spiritually Speaking Though—as you will see below—I am leftist in my social and political ideals, I tend to be rather conservative in my spiritual path. I practice a Gaelic Reconstructionist polytheistic tradition known as Fálachus. I am also the Uachtarán (President) of An Chuallacht Ghaol Naofa (Gaol Naofa).
Along with the beliefs of Fálachus, bioregionalism and deep ecology are very important to me.
