This post is filler

I don't normally let a week go by without blogging, but thing happened, like being asked by a magazine-editor friend to write a 2,000-word "think piece" on the dilemmas of a being an "evacuee"--from a forest fire in my case, but with obvious relevance to Katrina and Rita.

That took up last Sunday afternoon, which meant I was behind on reading student work . . . and it snowballed.

I also received the "author's marketing questionnaire" for Her Hidden Children, which is a good sign, and I'm scrambling for more photos. If you have any photos of key figures in American Paganism in the 1950s-1970s (or even earlier--Gleb Botkin, anyone), let me know. This weekend, meanwhile, I have to work on the questionnaire.

This Saturday I will take some nature-writing students on a mini-writing marathon in the SE Colorado canyon country. We won't be visiting any of the "Colorado ogham" sites, but we will be near enough that I plan to bring Bill McGlone's photo book of SE Colorado rock art, which includes some examples. (Quick overview of Ogham writing.)

From the link: "If the etchings are in fact Ogham, they would testify to the shift of the continents and show the ancient Celts explored the area long ago."

I'm trying to visualize Ireland pulling away from Colorado (leaving the Mississippi as its rift valley?), but I just can't.

Uh, yeah, shifting continents. That is a little hard to swallow, isn't it. Maybe I should just find and post the article that I wrote years ago about the whole controversy, although it seems outdated now.
