I know I've been quiet here. In large part that's because I'm focusing on other things - on my fiction-writing, on work with Yggdrasil, and just to round things out I'm on a Taoism kick this week.
There was a couple of years when I described myself as Buddhist and/or Taoist, and while aside from Kuan Yin's altar I haven't had much to do with it for a while, I do still owe a lot to what I learned in that practice, especially meditation and Taoist cosmology.
It's a funny story, actually, the work with Yggdrasil dovetailed into Qabalah, then high magic, and then western alchemy and inevitably into eastern alchemy, which I always found more interesting to research.
Taoist alchemy is also on-topic for the fiction universe I'm playing in at the moment, so it's useful in more than one area.
Aside from that, I did a little bit of jewelry work and my actual job and that's about it. How about y'all? Anybody miss me?
