Buzz Coil March-April 2018

Here are some notes about recent posts from blogs on our blogroll:

Annelinde's World: Two of several of Annelinde Metzger's recent spring poem posts are "Wake Robin," (April 14) which begins:
Blood-red trillium, 
     with your sumptuous variegated leaf patterns,
      arising in big colonies early, so early in spring
      amid dry leaves and old twigs,
Triple Goddess, you sprout from the dry earth...

and "Looking Glass" (March 24) about a mountain in North Carolina, which begins:
The earth’s egg,
she nestles here in her corpus luteum.

Both with pics.

Association for the Study of Women and Mythology:  ASWM's March 29 post announces: "Kathy Jones Receives 2018 Demeter Award." The award was made at the organization's 2018 Conference held recently in Las Vegas. Jones is an author, teacher, and a creator in England of both the Glastonbury Goddess Conference and the Goddess Temple of Glastonbury.  

HecateDemeter:  The most recent post (when I last looked) of Blogger Hecate's series "The Magical Battle for America," posted on April 22, refers to "American's First Peoples" and the man holding the present US presidential office. The April 22 post in this series is about Dion Fortune and Great Britain's stand against the Nazis in WWII, with a magical working related to the present situation in the US. Some of the other posts in the series were cancelled or delayed due to computer problems. Others that made it online in April and March are: April 1: Hills, buffalo, prairie, and young people's movement for gun safety;  March 25: "our American plain on the astral plane"; March 18: Cowboys on America's astral plane; March 11: Russia and US politics; March 4: Children, including the blogger's "G/Son."
Some of the other posts on this blog include, "Pink Petals" (March 31) short fiction that begins:
 "Like pink snowflakes  Like walking into one of those storybook pictures he’d loved to look at as a child.  Like magic.  Because it was.He found a patch of sun, a bench that wasn’t wet with dew, wouldn’t make his pants wet if he sat on it...."
Another short fiction piece, "Behind Pots & Shovels" (March 27);  a post, "Honoring Hestia" Hygge" (March 22); and "This is a Prayer for Spring; This is a Prayer for Resistance" (March 20)

My Village Witch: Byron Ballard's April 16 post, "Barrels of Rain, Inside and Out," describes what happened to Mother Grove Temple (Asheville, NC) during a recent rainfall.
