Yes, it has been three years that this podcast has been coming to you, and there are 159 episodes (including this one) to prove it! It was in April of 2006 when the first one came out. As I recall, it was my oft-repeated question as to why we can't get along.
Much has happened since then. The first that comes to mind is that Jerome Birnbaum, who trained and ordained Lady Stormy and then me, finally had a Pentacle-inscribed veteran's headstone for his grave. And people seem to be becoming more aware of Tempest Smith's tragic story. Lord Pan, the four-footed patriarch of our little family here, crossed over into the Summerland. I'm not claiming credit for anything other than these were some of the things we've shared over the past three years.
It might be said that it began with my own hunger and thirst. And when I found myself not only spiritually hungry and spiritually thirsty but also spiritually abandoned, I looked for a new home, new food and new drink. And it seemed right that while I should not proclaim this food and drink to be the only ones, I would be remiss if I did not offer them to those who might wish to avail themselves of them.
It might also be said that it grew from what I learned and discovered. Imagine us as a thread in a beautiful and infinite fabric. The problems come when we find a thread which thinks that it is the entire fabric!
And so, let's take a moment and celebrate that we've made it through these three years, and let's have a vision of what lies ahead for us.
I'm looking forward to it.
And thanks for sharing these three years with me.
