Breaking Wheels

I was talking with my Fireman friend, and St. Catherine of Alexandria came up. I’ve written on St. Catherine here before, and I very much like her. Love her name. Anyway, my friend asked me if I’d ever noticed anything “cherubim” about her. I hadn’t noticed this sort of thing before myself, but I could […] … Continue reading…Breaking Wheels

And I hadn’t really been trying, hadn’t really learned anything about trance states, but there I was. At some point during this ride, I had the […] … Continue reading…3: Obscuring Magic
