Let’s do this ! Printemps Créateur 2018

Mon Etoile Intérieure

Il est grand temps de l’annoncer, l’énergie fuse autour de  moi. Nous sommes passés soudainement de températures froides à des températures autour des 15 degrés, quand le soleil est là, l’impression est même vraiment plus chaude, l’air est sain… Wow, ça pétille ! Ca donne envie d’aller sortir marcher, de lire dehors, de créer. C’est le moment de songer à mettre en place le « printemps créateur » !

Chaque année j’essaie de mettre un peu plus de mots sur le concept pour expliquer tout ce que peut être le « printemps » dans nos vies, et vous décomplexer pour vous lancer. Alors, le « Printemps Créateur« , en quoi ça consiste ?

Le printemps arrive, le sentez-vous ? Si oui, cela sera d’autant plus facile d’exprimer quelque chose qui s’y rattache. Pouvez-vous non seulement représenter quelque chose de « printanier », mais représenter l’influence du printemps cette année dans votre vie ? Cela vous pose…

Recueil dévotionnel pour Odin, appel

Pour ceux qui n’auraient pas vu, Galina Krasskova a prévu un recueil dévotionnel pour Odin. Elle ouvre les participations à tous :

 

« I have decided to do another devotional to Odin, this one an anthology along the lines of « When the Lion Roars » or my forthcoming Idunna and Bragi devotional.

To that end, I’m requesting submissions of prayers, poems, black and white art work, rituals, meditations, articles (I’d love some meaty articles), recipes (incense, bath, food, etc.) and anything else that seems appropriate. 

The book will be put out through Asphodel Press and contributors will receive a copy of the finished product in payment (please include a bio with your submissions). 

Interested folks should contact me at tamyris at earthlink.net. 
I’d like to have this finished by summer’s end, so the deadline while loose, is sooner rather than later!

thanks! (and feel free to pass this request around).«
