As you all know, the pagan blog project deals with one subject a week, alphabetically. For some letters finding a topic was beyond simple. But for others, it was near impossible to find a topic that was magickal, let alone one that even interested me. I sought out pagan glossary after pagan glossary, even flipped through a few pagan encyclopedias and sometimes it just didn’t help at all. I’d be able to come up with one iffy topic, when I knew I’d have to do it all a second week before moving on to the next (hopefully) easier letter. Half the problem was how limited these glossaries were. If I was lucky, they’d have a few hundred words. Most contained only english words, or words pertaining to only one type of paganism/wicca. My goal is to create one of the most comprehensive pagan glossaries available.
Currently it contains definitions from multiple traditions (including celtic, kemetic, gardnerian wicca, and corellian wicca), languages (Irish, Welsh, Greek, and Egyptian, among others), and era of usage. While the words are for the present time going to be just words I come across, I hope others will assist in it’s evolution. :)
Also, I’m hoping to link up the blog with a sort of website archive. I have to check a few things out, but if it happens the site will be practical-magick.webs.com. I’ll make an announcement if/when it’s up and running!
Happy Independence Day to all the American Pagans!
