This blog is part of the Scáth na Feannóige/Shadow of the Hooded Crow project exploring fénnidecht as a practice to follow the War Goddessses, Badb, Macha and the Morrígan whose name is Anann. This is a less formal place for me to discuss various issues of interest to someone on a modern version of the Outlaw warrior path such as physical training, history, Old Irish literature, pop culture inspirations, werewolves, ecstatic trance (okay, I find that one tough to write about but I may try), gender issues the wilderness....

(Re) (Self) Publication Announcements

 Summer has been busy, mostly not with writing.  Mostly with horses.  (although both photos are old...guess not much photography is happening this summer either).  Also with allergies.... ~:p   And some editing has been happening.

Actually my article in the next Air n-Aithesc is an edited piece, some chunks very rewritten, actually.  I'll be posting when the issue is out very soon!


Meanwhile, as it's been over a year since “By Blood, Bone and  Blade: A Tribute to the Morrígan (Nicole Bonivusto, ed, Asheville, NC: Bibliotheca Alexandrina, 2014) came out, I decided it was now time for my essay in it, "Musings on the Irish War Goddesses" to "come home."

I started "Musings" as a short piece for the web.  But, of course, "short" wasn't possible. So it was going to be a long piece for the web, possibly as a PDF.  Then as I was finishing it up, the call for submissions for BBB&B showed up....and I figured I should submit it. Which I did.....and eventually the anthology came  out.

I have now replaced the actual shorter piece I later made for the page (which I had started to house this essay) with an intro to link the PDF of

Musings on the Irish War Goddesses

There are a few minor changes, mostly endnotes....um, mostly shamelessly noting other articles I have further explored some things I mention in it....and the CC related posts I have made here. 

 I have also put up some reworkings of my Sarah Connor Charm School fitness pots on the site as well...they are only linked through the training page at this point and I hope to rework them further soon.  But you can find them here if you are interested.
