Wow, been quite a while since I posted here.  I knew I would be very busy once my daughter was born, but I had no idea how much of my mental space she would occupy as well- I mean, pretty much all of it!  Any project I had in mind has been put on hold since she arrived, and I’ve dedicated 95% of my time to her, the rest going to taking care of normal bodily functions and adjusting to moving back to Spain to live with my husband’s family and try to find work.  These are times of big change; I’m finally starting on my career path, now that I’ve finished my degree.  That, plus an international move, plus having a family of my own has changed my priorities dramatically.  But that doesn’t mean that I’ve abandoned my intellectual pursuits- far from it!  Baby is napping right now, so I’m taking advantage of this opportunity to touch base with myself and rededicate to those aforementioned pursuits. 

Seshat, I ask that you bless me now, forgive my cloudy pregnancy/baby brain, and join me while I try to put study back into my life, this time in the form of studying Spanish again for the DELE exam, as well as trying to follow up on topics within the faith that I personally want to explore.  Besides the stuff on my to do list in the last post, I also had a few more topics I wanted to explore in future posts: such as introversion in the wisdom literature, the subconscious and how it affects religious experience, topics in Buddhism and related observations to the Kemetic faith, and the ongoing investigation I’ve been doing on the tri-faceted goddess Seshat-Nit-Nebthet, my Beloved.

I’ve had a philosophy of living religion rather than relying on actions to define my religious life for me, but I’ve started to feel out of touch since I’ve had to devote so much time to other Big Things going on.  I hope to remedy this by trying to attend the next Akhu ritual on Sunday (though the time difference makes it a little difficult since the baby tends to be fussy at that time) and start doing the “daily ritual” at least once a week.  Let’s see if I can get back into the swing of things. 🙂

  1. The joys of having children means you get baby on the brain. And everything else suffers.

    May luck, abundant and fruitful, head your way!
