Buzz Coil: June
The Corvid Diaries: In her June 21 post, "Wicca and Women" blogger Debi Crow explains why she doesn’t use the term "pagan" to describe herself (Debi: maybe you want to try Goddessian ?) and why she doesn’t acknowledge any "god" (male deity), and hates the phrase ,"Lord and Lady." This post also has excerpts from an article by Cheryl Straffon.
Radical Goddess Thealogy: Blogger Athana tells us what she thinks "men" really want in her June 23 post, "Eating & Stealing in the Post-Goddess World."
Broomstick Chronicles: Condolences to M. Macha NightMare at Broomstick Chronicles on the death of her mother, which she describes in several posts including May 24's "Love & Death" , May 25's "More about Our Mother" , and June 6's "More on Mom." Macha is co-author (with Starhawk and others in Reclaiming) of The Pagan Book of Living and Dying.
Flashes of Insight: In her May 27 post, "Tree Magic at Moonhaven," Flash Silvermoon describes how the trees in her yard instructed her to construct four sacred sites, weaving in information about her dog’s long life, and a 500-year old oak tree that’s been struck by lightning, and much more.
Peeling a Pomegranate: Blogger Ketzirah Carly has written the terrific "Miriam the Prophetess, a Midrash," posted on June 8.

The Wild Hunt: Jason Pitzl-Waters comments on an article noting a "drift away from strict secrecy within modern paganism," in his June 16 post, "Slowly Drifting Out of the (Broom)Closet." He asks for comments about people’s experiences and has received quite a few. Maybe you want to add yours.
At the end of desire: Blessings indeed to blogger Inanna on her ordination–and pregnancy. She writes about preparations for these and Midsummer in her June 15 post, "Blessings."
