So I'm going to whip out a it's-finally-good-and-spring HOORAY! post because, well, life has been pretty awesome. The plums and forsynthias are in bloom, I had a killer time hanging out at Turning Wheel with Jess and John and two other neat people that happened to wander in. We played Pass-the-Energy-Ball, which was a fun first. I am returning home from Turning Wheel with a beautiful little bowl made out of some kind of deep green stone; I'd like to make it an offering bowl of some kind, it's got a really earthy mossy shade-under-trees look and feel to it. Maybe I'll just keep some dirt in it and burn incense.

In a bit, they'll be arriving with Kristen and someone else I don't know in tow, and we're going to have popcorn and pizza and 80's cartoons marathon thing. He-Man and She-Ra and Gem, and all that.

I'm also blogging now to get one last gasp of the word out about the content strike many LJ users will be participating in, in protest of many of the recently enacted policies, such as the removal of the Basic account option for new users and the attempt to pass this by the community with nary a word said. I rarely blog as it is, so I figured that a post today, and perhaps a post the day after tomorrow, will help make the point.

There's a strike? Hrm, first I heard of it. Plus, I'm confused. I got a message telling me about it, didn't bother me at all, but then again, I have perm accounts for both of my journals and my wife uses paid accounts.

Sounds like a neat bowl, but I never heard of Pass-the-Energy-Ball.

Mm, unless you believe in things like chi or reiki or psi energy or whatever, the game would sound pretty ludicrous. People would take turns making a ball of energy with their hands, either just a generic ball of their own or the ambient energy, or maybe they'd 'charge' it with a specific idea or element in mind, and we'd pass it around the circle and see if we could tell what their intention was and successfully guess it. Because I'm a long-time lurker around the edges of occult/pagan stuff, but a relatively new practioner/participant, it was a really cool confidence builder for me that I could successfully sense things or tweak things myself.

Ah, didn't realize you were into it. I managed to get Reiki II some years ago, about five years after I got Reiki I. Drifted out the pagan circles though in the last five or six years for various reasons, but I still remember a lot of it.

Sadly, I never really *felt* energy. People tell me I'm doing it, I just don't feel it.
