This is not the post you were looking for.
There is, at this time of the year, a seeming expectation that a Pagan blogger will post something about the Christian high holy day of Easter. These obligatory posts usually take one of the following forms:
1.) A rambling discourse on the various pagan influences (eggs, rabbits, Ēastre of the Dawn) still visible in the modern celebrations of what would otherwise be a VERY Christian holiday.
2.) A compare/contrast between Christian Easter and the modern (and particularly Wiccan) celebrations of the spring equinox.
3.) An argument suggesting that the inclusion of Easter into a Pagan practice is all fine and good, this usually followed by an entreaty to stop being mean to all the christopagans.
4.) The “Correcting Misinformation” post, which seeks to fix all the mistakes made by people doing shoddy research and posting information that is either outright false or just generally misleading in one of the three previous types of Obligatory Pagan/Easter posts.
Well, if you look around just a bit, I think you’ll see that we’ve reached market saturation on all of the above categories for the 2013 Easter season.
This is not that post.
I had really wanted to do something funny for April Fools Day. I knocked around lots of different ideas but every time I’d try to put something down it came out feeling flat and forced.
“Dying is easy. Comedy is hard.”
This is not that post either.
The truth is, I’ve got Spring Fever.
No, that’s not right.
I’ve got a Spring fever. As in, I’ve been feeling ill for most of the last couple weeks. I’ve been forcing myself to go to work, but when I drag myself home, I’ve either been sleeping or experimenting with various levels of Zombieism. And while I know that Zombies are all the rage right now in popular media, I’ve got to tell you, they write for crap.
So this is THAT post, the long winded place-holder.
I hate that post!
I might have just skipped this week entirely, except that this is the fifty-second post since I started this blog and I couldn’t stand the thought of missing a week at the very end of an otherwise perfect year.
So, next week I’ll be celebrating the 1st Anniversary of the Stone of Destiny and you are all invited.
There may even be cake.
