Summary for the week ending Jan 14, 2018

Here’s a summary of activity for the week ending January 14th, 2018.

This week marks the passing of two well-known figures. On Jan 9th, Maggie Ingalls, also known as Nema and Soror Anadharaha, passed away. On Jan 14th, Dale Pendell also passed away. You may be interested in gandering at Liber Pennae Praenumbra and the commentary Beta by Nema, which are texts in the library collection. I’ve added the greater feasts of Maggie Ingalls and Dale Pendell to the calendar events for next year.

Lots of new pages and work on old pages on the site, which is pretty much every week, really. You can always check the front page of the site which shows the most recent changes and new pages, or check out the Recent Changes special page for a full list.

the most precious thing in the universe is that mysterious thing we call individual liberty and which even God himself guards and respects. Up to some point, difficult certainly to delimit, a man must be captain of his soul. He cannot be a person if he does not have a sphere of power over his own act.
