Fascinating. Over on Alison Leigh Lilly’s page is a writing challenge, 30 Days of Druidry, and without knowing about it, I found myself writing on the subject of “Why Druidry?” today — item #1 on the list.
Mathematician argues with artist.
The mathematician says that today is the 8th of August, so I should skip the first eight items and move forward from number nine, starting tomorrow. The artist tells me to start with number 1, then do odd-numbered subjects every day (skipping 13 just because), then sweep back on the even-numbered ones in reverse order.
Pagan wins over both: I’ll do neither. Today is the first day I’ve seen this, so today shall be One. Maybe I’ll write two in one day and start to catch up. Maybe I’ll take a day off and fall behind. Maybe I’ll skip topics I don’t like.
