I also feel more able to share my spirituality since Topaz shared with me that ze was actively desiring to host a ritual (but feels the need to clean zir entire house first); I feel like that made me feel confident that Topaz wasn't just being empathetic and curious but had zir own motivation for expressing spirituality, which is new and exciting. It has been a long time since I was fully connected to someone who was spiritual in practice. I have a lot of people in my life who are spiritual, but not any who are active enough to create a ritual in which I can participate but am not necessary for it to exist. I'm just starting to get to the point where I have the confidence to do that myself.
I've also been doing more art: two fractals in the past two days (which is pretty much as fast as you can go because they take like 2 hours to make and then 12+ hours to render), and before that I did makeup and self-portraits (I want to replace a bunch of my old icons and I want my faces for certain expressions that I don't have icons for, like skepticism and awkwardness). Also I had a friend come over this week and craft with me, which was great because I did all of these plasticine clay beads and pendants. I feel closer to being able to make the wands (so intimidated by that project though). In answer to Vola's question, I don't have specific intent to work with Sekhmet more, because it just depends on whether or not ze visits and/or communicates with me again. After two experiences I tend to feel that the connection is more than a random gift (because they happened to be paying attention / in the area), and will try to find ways to honor and appreciate them.
Even though looking at this I can see that it is not true, at the same time as all this I've been feeling stagnant, in part because I haven't been able to motivate to tidy (though I did two loads of laundry! finally! after meaning to do it every day for a week) because it has been body-squishingly hot at my house (the air conditioner broke and I can't even open the windows because the dehumidifier is already pulling like 2 gallons of water a day) and I've been spending more time at Topaz'. I really need to do a whirlwind tidy session but it is hard to do alone :-p
