I like this article a lot. It strikes me as more toward "intermediate",
though. I suppose I need to read it again...Yes, I think that it fits in
as a chance to talk about "Theory of Sumbel": what is the role of alcohol,
what is a sumbel supposed to accomplish, what can disrupt that, etc. IMO,
of course. The whole discussion of people choosing the wrong examples to
follow is just the kind of thing I had in mind when I started typing "Code

- Hi all,
I'm pleased to report that my second set of booklets on practical
Heathenism, entitled 'Wights and Ancestors: Heathenism in a Living
Landscape' arrived today - after problems with the cover, followed by
a move, a petrol blockade crisis, no deliveries for a week and the
Gods only know what... ;)
Anyway - they're here, with many more photographs, a full-colour
glossy cover of one of the standing stones at Avebury, and a proper
spine this time. 52 pp plus title pages..
Waes thu hael,

There's a woman who runs an online-store who is interested in taking
some - but I'm waiting to hear back from her. Rather than wait
further, if enough people would be interested we could do as we did
before, which has the advantage of cutting down the postage costs.
The price is the same - £4 - but postage will be more because these
are thicker and hence heavier (and have a spine and a glossy cover...)
