(created by me back in 8/05)

I am the very model of a Hellenist individual
My festivals are derived entirely from Burkert et al
I'm quite adept at reconstructing Hellenismos theory from what I have read
From Walter Otto, Jane Harrison, and everything Kerenyi has ever said

Many Hellenists I have emailed and in person have met
And all of their Hellenic wisdom I understand and jokes I of course do get
I've even told fluffy bunnies to go fly a kite
From Robert Graves to Bulfinch I've told them to go and get it right

I keep all of the other recons on their toes
I quote page and chapter from Walter Burkert and watch as their confusion grows!
I even keep quotes memorized from Karl Kerenyi
Even though the idea of Hades and Dionysos being the same doesn't agree with me

I know all of the names and traits of the gods, nature spirits, even Furies,
Then to impress them all I can recite a book from W.K.C. Gutherie
I have just about every book on Hellenismos imaginable
Including Old Stones, New Temples written by Drew Campbell

You see from all reconstructionist festival and ritual
I am the very model of a Hellenist individual!

Ah ha.

After great thought and deliberation, I'm going to reopen my personal LJ. This LJ was (and still is) a blog of my thoughts in regards to the gods, a place to put essays.

I want to keep it that way. I have a Tumblr account which crossposts to Twitter which crossposts to Facebook, and the moment I find a way for any of these services to crosspost to here I'm going to get it.




And now...the personal LJ:

Please note: if I don't add you at first, it doesn't necessarily mean that I don't like you or don't want to correspond with you. It probably just means I want to chat with you first before adding. Default for postings on there is friends only, and for obvious reasons I kinda like my space. :)
