… and I am still alive. Nine years ago, someone posted on this blog that “You will be dead soon.”
DUMBASS! What else?
A certain black magick shop in Eureka is long dead, but Avalon Risen is very much alive, and has been supporting Ceridwen and I for the past eight years, ever since Gottschalks went away. Oh, and we are still living in Eureka (sorry WL, your prediction of cardboard boxes and a U-Haul never materialized). The Reformed Druids of Gaia is still growing by leaps and bounds, as is the Order of the Mithril Star. But I did learn quite a bit through all this:
1) Don’t allow a business and the Pagan community to mix. Neither will survive.
2) Don’t turn over something you worked hard to bring about over to someone who isn’t going to stay around.
3) Advertising dollars will secure your business success more than magick.
4) In fact, magick is just as effective as prayer.
Here find a History of the Sequoia Pagan Alliance, the organization Ceridwen and I founded and which was destroyed by trolls.
