Fabulous, Lovely, Beautiful… simply put, mi blog es un premio que inspira. Yep, Pagan Culture is a gift that inspires. My Aries heart already knew that, of course, for the narcissistic voice that whispers in its ears never stops repeating awesomeness-filled words. But it is nice to know that other people know it, too *grins and blows kisses at the mirror*. Don’t puke just yet, my Wicked Luvs, an occasional dose of extreme self-love is wonderful for the soul. Go on, try it, tell yourself how wonderful you are *waits… nods a lot… smiles encouragingly*. Didn’t that feel fabulous?
Purr(fect)! With that out of the way, we can move on to other charming bits.
Two days ago, someone said that I if was going to use this blog to discuss fiction, then I should change its name for something less “involved, more writing-related than Pagan Culture.”
I said no. Fine, so I first asked her if she was on drugs, and then I said no.
I won’t even speculate on what she meant by “involved,” but I will say this: I spent many days choosing a name for this blog. Notice that I didn’t say many days selecting Pagan Culture as the final name, for the actual name selection process took me many weeks. I had a very long list of possibilities, which were only connected by the world Culture.
I considered: Witch Words, Spelling Witch, Words Are Magic, Wicked Witch Writes… but my subconscious must have realized that this blog was going to deal with much more than witchery, writing, and the pretty things in my head. Witchcraft is about community and individual choices, but culture encompasses a lot more than just Witches and words. And Pagan, to me, speaks of old, of the land, of roots that go deeper and grow stronger than the ignorance of some. With that thought in mind, Pagan Culture was born ;-)
I thank Mina from Green Witch with Sprinkles, Connie from Sunfire’s Ramblings, Serenity from The Domestic Pagan, and Morag from Innocence and Immanence for the awards they’ve given Pagan Culture. Stop by their blogs, my Luvs, and tell my witchy friends that I love their kind gesture, and that I will always value the opportunity to remind myself—and others—that some things are perfect just the way they are.
I seem to have misplace the gold-dusted parchment that listed the rules for the awards *grins*. So… I’ll share 3 fabulous bits about culture, 2 things I love, and 1 I dislike:
3. Fabulous momentous about culture (Straight from the dictionary):
1. It’s the quality in a person or society that arises from a concern for what is regarded as excellent in arts, letters, manners, scholarly pursuits
2. Development or improvement of the mind by education or training
3. The behaviors and beliefs characteristic of a particular social, ethnic, or age group
2. Things I love about Culture: (I’m putting something in here because there is parenthetical information after the other items. It seemed unfair not to):
1. The concept embraces education, art, individuality, community… choice
2. Culture is made by people
1. Things I Dislike about Culture (This section is supposed to be about things I hate, but I’ve come to a point in my life where I can honestly say that I don’t truly hate anything, but…):
1. I dislike people who are so blinded by the belief that their culture is better than everyone else’s that they forget the meaning of the word and embrace stupidity.
A person who hasn’t forgotten where he or she comes from and is proud of that knowledge.
Oh, stop looking at me like that, my Wicked Darlings. This is a diverse world, so define it as you wish ;-)
I, Magaly Guerrero, declare that we are all freaking awesome, in our own way. I’m passing these awards to every lover of Blog Culture who wants to share a bit about why they joined this circle of information givers and seekers; of friends. So just grab one or snatch them all, and bless the world with the fabulousness that is you, my Wicked Luvs.
