Besides, everyone loves a parade.
The Carnival will begin next month over at Adventures in Animism & will continue onward each month, visiting a diverse collection of blogs like Glen Gordon's PostPagan, Natural Pantheist Musings, Green Shinto, etc.
The prompts are chosen by the hosts & are devised to be open-ended, thus allowing for the greatest number of interpretations: for example; water, science, climate, art, parenting, bodies, religion, technology, soil, magick, rites of passage, being animal, health, etc. Ooooh, big open swaths of Idea.
You can read more about it at this announcement, but the short version is:
"Each month it is like an online magazine on animism and one topic, butThere is no commitment to "attend" the carnival every month (except for the month you are hosting!) or make your posts epic, soul-wrenching, bloodletting efforts & with such a latitudinarian approach to the topics (would you expect anything else from a gaggle of animists?) authors who contribute should never feel locked in the blogosphere doldrums.
the place it is hosted is different, not centralized. Like a carnival
Why? To show the diversity of animism and to promote blogs to people
who might be interested but did not know of them. I personally feel
strongly that no matter what religion a person is the basic values and
beliefs and actions of animism can greatly repair the human false
separation from the world which would have amazing (good) impact on
many human created problems."
If you are an animist writer, or if you tend to include animist themes in your writings & are interested in hopping on the wagon, contact Heather Awen via Glen Gordon. Or, if you are shy, contact me & I will get you a ticket to ride.
