I have striven to give The Pagan Sphinx blog a slight touch of the art museum. At least that's what the blog has evolved into. A sort of scrapbook I'm keeping for therapy.  I'm not inclined for some time now to discuss a lot of personal details on the blog. I'm afraid that the more personal aspects of my life have to be dealt in the forum of the actual world; up-close and personal.  :-)

I want my blog to be something I do because I love to do it. The drama of my own life is not something I can readily adopt to the blog page. If you know what I mean. That means for me, keeping it simple. I like my drama in doses of entertainment, but when the shit hits the fan, I have to just confront it. 

I'm sorry if that sounds cryptic. What I want to say, simply, is that I may be absent and/or distant for as long as it take me to sort things through.
In my strong attempt to be forthcoming, I invariably end up being cryptic without meaning to. To complicate matters, my computer has been behaving badly. It is long over-due that I buy a new one but it is just not possible with one child still studying at a university and all of its related expenses. 

I have, at this point, given up posting an image to this post, as the computer just keeps getting stuck.

I will see you all once in a while,
Pagan Sphinx

I want to read blogs and not comment for a while. So just know that I am around. Those friends who have my email address, please keep in touch.

Pagan Sphinx


  1. I'm very glad you're back and essentially safe and sound. I love your art gallery posts but am content to wait until the personal and computer related tribulations have cleared.

    Peace and love

  2. I'm echoing what susan said. That's the thing I've learned to love about this medium. We can come and go and pick up where we left off.

  3. You will be missed when you are not here.

  4. Gina...thank you..
    'I just read your comment on my post with the Emily Dickinson quotes. Have you ever been to the Homestead in Amherst? Also, I just finished an excellent fictionalized account of her life called The Secret Life of Emily Dickinson by Jerome Charyn. It's excellent. I never wanted it to end! There is a page for the novel on facebook if you'd like to check it out.'

    I haven't visited or read the book so I appreciate the information. I am sorry about your computer issues and I certainly understand how life comes at you and takes some time to sort out..Take care.....Michelle

  5. Understand completely. Do what you have to do but I hope you get back hear soon as you can because it's a great blog and I love reading what you have to say. Take care. Will b3e in touch.

    Peace and love.


  6. I hope things sort out well Sphinx. I hope you will be back with us soon.

    Take care and best wishes


  7. Gina, hang in there, and take your time sorting things out.

    I understand the need to handle some of life in private, and respect your decision to step back from the light of the computer, though I'll be anticipating your return along with all your other fans and friends.

    As always, call any time you feel like talking to a friend.

    Peace, Out.

"When the Amherst sphinx styled herself a pagan, she meant she didn’t believe in the biblical God. What sort of deity, if any, she did believe in is hard to pinpoint."
