What I Decided

There was going to be a post about Ostara ritual tonight, but guys, I’m not gonna lie. It was snowing when I left work, and I have a really hard time celebrating spring when it’s fucking snowing in late March. So instead I am going to revisit yesterday’s conundrum.

Thank you all for the suggestions, first of all. It’s amazing how much it helps to talk it out. I will tell you what I decided, and why.

On the free books, I decided to forgo them, at least for now. Part of the reason for doing the exercise was to make me appreciate what I have rather than just mindlessly acquiring more. Sure, mindlessly-acquired ebooks don’t take up any space, but they have psychological weight. I see them, and I know I haven’t read them. Also I’ve gotten to the point of being slightly compulsive about hunting down free ebooks, or even buying inexpensive ones. I do it without really thinking about whether I’m actually going to read them.

As for Of Gods and Men, most of you thought I should get it because I’ve wanted it for some time, and I decided you guys are right. The point is not to mindlessly deny myself; the point is to be thoughtful and intentional about the books I acquire. Buying this book, which I’ve wanted for a while and happens to be on a very good sale, makes complete sense.

So thank you guys for you advice! It definitely helped.

  1. Once it started snowing during our Ostara ritual we were having outside. Sometimes the Gods like to poke fun at us. lol

    And I’m glad you got the book!
