So, Æqo got off the tie last night and was gone for about 4 hours. There was much panicking and running about hunting for her. Boat load of fail, but a lot of exercise was had. The results were... expensive.
Friday, my mom called and told me that my dad has been diagnosed with a really aggressive cancer. It will probably end him. It’s weird the way that the illusion of immortality of youth, while it may wear thin, somehow manages to persist until one confronts the imminent death of a parent.
Yesterday, we held the inaugural meeting of a Magickal working group that I’m forming with some some friends. One of our intended number failed to show. This is a bummer, as frankly, he;s going through a rough patch. I hope everything is OK by him.
Last time I put the begging bowl out and beat the drum, it was for for Bob Wilson; I'm doing it again for a musician that I really dig and respect, SJ Tucker.
SJ landed in hospital with severe abdominal pain, and the diagnosis is still not in- it may be appendicitis, and it may be something else. Whatever the case, She's going to end up with a whopping bill, and doesn't have insurance. So, anyhow, there's a big sale and fundraiser going on over at http://www.skinnywhitechick.com, and the details on her status are up there as well.
Went out for beers & food with Pete from work on Thursday, and he inquired about what I was currently reading. We've nattered about starting up a book club in the past.... so, here's the current list of what I've been sticking my nose in:
"The Secret Teachings of All Ages" by Manly Palmer Hall.
"House of cards" by C.E. Murphy
"The Ego and his Own" by Max Stirner
"Bullshit and Philsophy" Ed. Gary L. Hardcastle and George A. Reisch
I doubt I'll be posting extensive reviews to the blog, but I won't rule it out.
So, Kess and I have been looking at buying a house. We've got a good idea of what we want, and what we want do do with a house, and even what we want that house to do for us and for our Family of Choice. We've even found a Place that we are considering to be a damn strong candidate...
