It’s been quite some time since I’ve poked my nose out around here. I feel a bit ashamed of course, giving up so quickly (once again!) on the PBP, and in general not blogging like I’ve always intended to. To be fair, a lot of things have happened between now and the last time I’ve posted, though in the end, I’ve just generally been lazy.
That’s not to say that I’ve stopped my Kemetic practices! I speak to Netjer pretty much every day, I pray, and I generally make offerings of water, flame, and incense (candles in my case) every day as well. I suppose what really happened here is that because so much of my practice is so routine, I didn’t feel it was necessary to really blog about any of it.
Then again, a blog is about more than reporting what you’re up to, yes?
So, for the month of May, I am dedicating myself to some more goals. I have already posted about them on the HoN forums, but I will make mention of them here (perhaps a double posting will keep me honest!) This month I will endeavor to make more use of my blog, I will make an effort to learn about and get close to a Name that is outside of my Family, I will perform Senut at minimum three times a week, and I will remember to make weekly offerings to my Akhu and write a few letters to them.
From my previous list of goals I still need to assemble an Akhu photobook (I have the book, but not copies of the appropriate photos), work on a personal prayerbook (once again I have the book, but haven’t done anything with it), work on completing my Akhu shrine, and spending more time learning about my Family so that I can update Their pages accordingly.
I have a lot to do. Heh. And I’ve decided to pick up on some other projects as well…
I recently read about a project being done by a fellow Kemetic – you may know her as Emky, though she was also recently named Itenumuti. She has spent over a year consistently recording prayers in a notebook for our community – a sort of original heka prayer process. I think it’s an amazing idea, and am wanting to adopt the practice. I have also signed up to join in on the Kemetic Round Table! With any luck I shall also resume my PBP activities, though I will likely spend some time with the current letters instead of trying to catch up. ^.^ I have some photos of my shrine space to share, and I will attempt to get those up before the end of the week once I have them uploaded and resized. Looking forward to putting more energy back into this place.
