This is a brilliant project.

Shadows of the Sun

Tamara L. Siuda’s The Ancient Egyptian Daybook project now has its own website. Those of you who wanted to contribute to but missed the Kickstarter campaign have the renewed opportunity to pledge/reserve your copies of the text between now and December 2013. The chapter previews of the text will go live gradually over the summer season as work progresses.

Once the book is officially published, the website will be reformatted into a sales page from which the text may be ordered. So, if you miss out on being able to contribute to the project between now and December 2013, you will still be able to buy the book later.

And by all means, spread the word! Every little bit helps.

With wings of gossamer white

You protect me with love and light

You come from Heaven above

And fill me with unconditional love

You sooth away my tears and fears

Always listen when no-one else hears

You taught me again to love and laugh

Guiding me along life’s rocky path

Lonely I will never be

You will always be here with me

When ever I feel sad or down

You’re there to chase away my frown

I’m lucky and so very glad

to have had you for my Dad


This looks like a deserted place

But there’s life beneath the surface

If you take another a look again

There’s a spider on a window pane

Her webs are scattered all around

And it teams with life on the ground

At night hear the squeak of mice

Beneath rotting stumps crawl woodlice

Over loose rubble a beetle scurries

To an unknown destination it hurries

The floor is reclaimed by weeds

On which a lone honey bee feeds

It’s not really deserted you see

Just take a closer look like me



The mountains of Snowdonia

Are a beauty to behold

As we trek back to our homeland

Druids, strong, young and old


I call upon the Elements

I am a Druid High Priest

To bless our sacred offerings,

I command North, South, West and East


I bless our brave Celt warriors

Come home from battle again

As I perform the sacred ritual

For us to Celebrate Beltane

An excellent blog, as always from Sarduriur.

“Revered before Banebdjedet, the ‘Chamberlain-Priest,’ He Who Separates the Two Gods, Prophet of the Ram, Hatmehyt and the Greater and Lesser Enneads, the Chief W’ab Priest who knows his duty . . . Nes-usert, called Wahibre . . . he says: “O Ram of [Ra], Ram of the Great One, Ram of Shu, Ram of Earth! Four faces on a single neck! O entombed rams within the Mansion of the Rams! (Ye for Whom) the Nile emerges from the cavern of Yebu that the fields may sparkle with ‘clothing’ (of herbage), that breasts may foal in timely season, their sustenance being on earth, and that Ra rises and Atum sets, so as not to impair Their offerings day and night! Remember Ye my name specifically when offering is made to Your kus! Grant Ye me an offering at the moment of requital, given at Your volition, (and also) a good…

Absolutely stunning!


To follow up on last week’s post—and by way of tangible proof that Her temples still live—I’d like to share with you the Temple of Isis in my backyard. It is named the House of the Lotuses, Per Sushenu, or the Lotus Temple. It was built for an Isis Festival in 2010 and reconstructed in our backyard following the festival since nobody could bear to see it destroyed. Incidentally, that festival is the same one for which I originally instituted this blog. As you can see, both blog and temple are still going strong.

The Temple of Isis lives in so many of our hearts. I am extremely fortunate in that I also have one living in my backyard. With that, here’s a tour of the House of the Lotuses:
