I’ve been waiting for a good opportunity to start posting Pagan and Wiccan news articles again. But I’ve had a hard time finding anything. Despite the fact that both Yahoo! and Google daily update me on various search parameters such as “Wicca”, “Pagan”, “Paganism” etc., there’s just not much going on Pagan-wise. So that’s why the site has remain so quiet. There’s nothing going on. Apparently the much lauded Pagan revival is going on without much of a hitch. No one really cares about it, I guess.
Case in point, there was a story today. Apparently a woman in Lebanon, Indiana accidentally stabbed herself in the foot with a 3-foot-long sword while performing a Wiccan good luck ritual at a central Indiana cemetery. Okay. Sorry. My first reaction to that was laughter. She stuck a sword through her foot while performing a good luck ritual. Come on! That’s hilarious!
I wouldn’t have even have mentioned this, but while researching it I discovered that the story was posted on just about every Pagan and Wiccan web site that I could find. Maybe we simply have different criteria here. I sympathize with this woman for the extreme pain she’s experienced, but I fail to see how her stabbing herself in the foot qualifies as Pagan news.
I’ll try to do better in rounding up some Pagan stories. Honestly, it seems to me that all the news that Pagans need to be interested in is right there on the mainstream news.
