Just to simplify things for everyone:
As it says on the copyright notice, posts on DDtM may not be reproduced without my permission, although if you quote me briefly and give credit I'm not going to hunt you down like a dog or anything.
On the other hand, you're more than welcome to post links to my work (individual articles or the whole site) any old where you like. You don't have to ask about that. You are, after all, providing free advertising for me. I certainly have appreciated people who have asked first, but links are absolutely no problem and I'd hate for you to sit around waiting for me to reply when I'm so dreadful at doing so in a timely fashion.
I've said before, repeatedly, that I am a terrible correspondent--if you email me, please don't be offended that it takes me forever and sixteen years to get back to you.
Also, if you email me with a philosophical or spiritual question don't be surprised if I make a post out of it--obviously I won't say "So-and-so is having problems with her husband and kids, and that led her to wonder..." but if you get me to thinking and I feel like other people might be interested, chances are it'll show up here in some form, if for no other reason than I hate sending really long rambling emails. Why do that when I can make really long rambling blog posts?
Lastly, to make up for the lack of substance in this particular post, here's a random photograph of me talking to a manatee at the Dallas World Aquarium last year, taken by my coven sister S1ren.
We now return to your regularly scheduled update.
