Thanks, CZ...I don't even have to say anything, do I? When the ceiling started caving in on me, I stepped back from anything Magickal since I've seen some pretty ugly things happen when people that weren't centered worked it. So I've been on a sabbatical for all intents and purposes for several years - worsened after my head injury, when my feeling of connectedness with the flow of things just disappeared, and my memory loss included a lot of my Craft knowledge.
I've been feeling that it's time to start back on that direction in my path lately, but I've been afraid. Yeah, that's the word... Ever since I was asked to call a corner in a local group's ritual (who all knew me from way back) when I was a guest and I went completely blank during the ritual I've been gun shy. I have severe memory problems from the head trauma. I don't know I've forgotten things until I hear the dreaded words, "Larry, do you remember..." and I can't. And I now realize that my misplaced pride has kept me from admitting that in a lot of ways I just have to start over from scratch, with a lot less mental horsepower to draw on. Yeah, I know, a lot of things will come back once I start working, but knowing and feeling are two different things.
So if no one else is going to take advantage of this, I will. Thanks...
