Thinking About – Inheriting Magical Items/Paraphernalia

I've been in the recording studio all week working on the Y Mabinogi project. The good news is that it's been an amazing three whole days and it's moving along very nicely, but I thought I would pull my head out of the headphones and type a blog post with

Draw a Card, Cast a Rune.

Initiation and the Power of Transformation

Initiations can often be very powerful experiences. I was initiated into the Order of Bards Ovates and Druids on the Spring Equinox of 1995, having joined the Order in April 1994. I hadn't rushed in. I wanted to be sure I had found my home. I remember the night well. The
