So last night I dreamt of the World's Fluffiest Pagan. It was actually quite funny and made fun of itself as it went along.

Ready? Here goes.

Name: Lady Rainbow Brite Moonsparkle

Motto: "What would Isis-Hecate-Kali-Morrigan-Brigid-Inanna-Sekhmet-Diana-Athena-Yemaya do?"

Totem: Unicorn. In fact this is where she got her name! She had a vision while meditating of a brillant unicorn with a rainbow colored mane and sparkles all over him that reminded her of moonbeams!!! She was so spiritually inspired by this vision she became "Lady Rainbow Brite Moonsparkle".

Pet peeve: Being confused with an 80s cartoon character.

Favorite handmade charm: a big rainbow pin with a thunderbolt and storm cloud hanging from each end to remind her of Zeus, her special pal who's fun to be with!

I seriously, really, truly dreamt this and woke up laughing my ass off.

I dreamt about Delphi again last night. I'm not sure what brought it on except that this is the most amount of times I've dreamt about this place in a given period of time.

I don't really know what it means and I'm not sure of its significance beyond various things I was "given" in the dream. One theme that keeps getting repeated over and over again is the concept of the place as a spirit or daimon living on in other people and places that it may not truly be lost to time. Given my last communion with Apollo went something along those lines I guess this would make sense.

This seems like a very simple message on the surface but has overreaching complications for others. I've frankly had more than one dream missive from Apollo telling me that reconstructionism was a waste of time and energy and ultimately was more destructive to those ancient practices than positive due to the sheer quantity of misinformation and misunderstanding brought about by modern mentality and needs that whatever it used to mean would be lost forever. I'm going to have to dig up the original dream and post it here, but it was some years ago, and in it I was approached by a wolf on my way to Delphi who showed me people taking apart old stones from old temples and using them to make warships. Not only were the remains of the old temples being lost to these ships they stood the chance at being destroyed forever and lost to time due to the battles that would ultimately be fought by these very ships.

Given how much IMHO the Greek reconstructionist community has gone astray this dream seems to be right on target and I only wish that I had determined its meaning sooner. I would've run away from reconstructionism a lot faster than I had.

It's interesting how I look to the Celtic, Asatru, and other recon communities and they seem to have it more together than we do. Not without a share of battles and arguments, but they look like they're accomplishing more--probably because they have much less to work with than us and aren't demanding everything be purely ancient or they wouldn't have anything to work with!

Maybe I'm looking at them with rose glasses, but perhaps we could take a page or two from them somehow.
