I have organized the list by author and added topic tags; if you prefer a list by topic, have a look at my 2018 post. This year I have added twenty new books to the list (some are classics that were not on the list before, but most are recently published books).
And I made a YouTube video about some of the Queer Pagan books in my collection.
This is actually an illustration of how terrible I am at meditation. But I had fun trying. I’m sharing this for all the other people out there who struggle with meditation. I can recommend washing your face with snow though — it’s very invigorating.
Pagan festivals (and traditional, Indigenous, Earth-based festivals around the world) are mostly about the cycles of the year. If you were a pastoralist, you had times when the sheep went up to the high pasture and times when they came down again. If you were a grower of crops, your cycle of festivals revolved around when you planted the crops and harvested them. There were times of plenty and times of hunger. Festivals marked the end of one phase and the beginning of another.
People are often confused that I’m a blogger but I really value privacy. They seem to think that having any sort of internet presence is incompatible with privacy.

Have you had a “wobble” in your Pagan path where you joined another religion, either temporarily or permanently? What caused it, and what other religion did you choose? Did it help you resolve the issue? Did you return to Paganism, or did you stay with the other religion? What did you gain or lose by your exploration of the other path?
I haven’t done a “notable and quotable” for a while. I’ve been a bit busy making YouTube videos and promoting the second editions of my books, Dark Mirror and The Night Journey. But I spotted some great posts and thought they were worth sharing in case you missed them.
