The Seeking Place

Adios, Amigos!


The time has finally come-- I'm retiring this blog. There will be no new posts here, but I will keep it public as an archive in case anyone still wants to read it (mostly me, let's be honest). I've loved writing here, and I hope that what I've written has had an impact, even if it just made someone laugh.

I'm now writing at a new blog called The Seeking Place. You can check it out here. All future post can be found there. Thanks to Blogger for a good run. I'll be seeing the rest of you at my new blog home.

Seeking

Where am I going? Also, I miss October.


I just wanted to keep everyone updated on the status of my transition to a new blog. As of right now, I still don't have a new one. I know, what am I waiting for? Well, part of the problem is that my personal laptop is out of commission until I can get it fixed, so I have little access to the internet besides my phone. I simply will not create/maintain a full blown blog through my iPhone. My thumbs would simple cease to operate if I tried to do that!

However, there has been a lot going on in my life spiritually, and I've been wanting to write about it in a safe space with no pressure. I'm not sure if I'm ready to delve into the nitty-gritty of all that I'm going through, but suffice it to say I'm very conflicted about where my spiritual journey is headed. Where am I going? I know I am only 24 (almost 25... WOW), and I have a lot of life left to live, and I know my journey never truly stops, but I have don't a lot of reinventing myself in terms of my spirituality. I mean, I grew up in various protestant churches, with a splash of Catholicism, and then I separated from the church after high school and moved to Paganism. Then I began exploring Judaism. That's a lot of spiritual exploration in 7 years! But what I've noticed is that my core values and beliefs about the Divine have not actually changed very much going through all three religious movements. What has changed is how I connect with the Divine and what holidays I celebrate.

Transitions

I'm gonna treat myself to a new blog!

I've been spending a lot of the last six months wanting to post on my blog and not being able to. There have been a few things keeping me away. And I've realized that this blog is really been part of an older version of myself. When I started this blog I was a college student trying to navigate early adulthood. I was exploring paganism and that was an important and meaningful experience for me. I was learning how to live in a bigger city environment (compared to living in Grass Valley) and working in places I was less than enthused about.
