CHRISTOPHER BLACKWELL. Interview with Singer, Poet, Musician, Writer, Druid and Bard, Paul Newman.

More opportunities come to you as you become more able to meet their demands."[...]

CHRISTOPHER BLACKWELL. Interview with Faolan na Amarok. "My love of natural witchcraft shows in my garden. I have a Green Man plaque, a Dryad plant pot and a tree sprite carving. Gardening is something else which runs in the blood. My maternal grandfather was head gardener for a well known Lord and Lady, and he had a wonderful cottage garden of his own. I spent hours with him. He had bee hives in the orchard and taught me the names of all the flowers. He also grew all his own fruit and vegetables, kept a brace of Jersey cows, and had a chicken coop of Rhode Island reds."[...]

LARISA HUNTER. Josefu Mutesa, British born of Ugandan parents, slowly recalls his experiences in Rwanda, ‘land of the thousand hills’ where he went as an UN official in the aftermath of the genocide.

MORGAUSE FONTELEVE. To the best of my ability I shall continue to strive to be a vehicle of information and illumination, guided by Nature and Reason, aided by Divine Instinct (Conscience within) and Justice, practicing Equity, striving to understand the struggle and beauty of life and those whose lives touch mine and not to be blind to the light of others.

FRANCISCO FUMAROLA. I once heard someone describe the runes as a “lesser form of magic”, or a “lesser arcana”. I have also heard that the runes deal with lower energies than for example the powers dealt with in Kabbalistic magic. Nothing could be further from the truth. The runes express concepts and powers from Germanic myth and Germanic worldview. I believe that the runes are a summary of all important forces of creation and therefore they reflect the whole or a cosmology.[...]
