My name is Morgan Daimler. I have been a witch since 1991, an Irish reconstructionist since about 1994, and heathen since 2006. I like to write poetry and recently ventured into writing fiction which I enjoy. I have had my poetry and prose published in different places including 7 anthologies, Circle magazine, Witches and Pagans magazine and the CR journal Air n-Aithesc. I am the author of the book By Land, Sea, and Sky, and the urban fantasy series Between the Worlds. Through Spero Publishing I have the children's book a Child's Eye View of the Fairy Faith.Through Moon Books I have Where the Hawthorn Grows, Fairy Witchcraft, and Pagan Portals: the Morrigan. ...more

Sometimes though that just doesn't work and I'll force myself to write through it, even if I feel totally uninspired, and go back later and edit or re-write to improve it. (less)

There are a couple CR organizations like Gaol Naofa and Sinnsreachd that I am aware of that exist as in person groups, as well as some Druid groups like Ord na Darach Ghile that are Cr specific or ADF which are CR friendly. And of course there is usually a CR social media presence. (less)

 Responding to a social media question: What are my favorite translations of [old/middle] Irish material?I don't know that I necessarily have favorite translations, per se, so much as favorite translators. So if I have a choice I tend to look for work by Kuno Meyers or Elizabeth Gray when possible because they are two of my favorites. Meyers because he footnoted like nobody's business and he's

“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately...”
Henry David Thoreau

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
Theodore Roosevelt

“If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it.”
Toni Morrison

“Start writing, no matter what. The water does not flow until the faucet is turned on.”
