Fifth Anniversary

Welcome to "The Gods Are Bored," proud to serve you the finest forgotten deities since 2005!

Yes, that's right. This month, "The Gods Are Bored" turned five. I can hardly believe it. When you love doing something, time doesn't matter. In case you haven't noticed, I love to blog.

For our fifth anniversary, here's a little wisdom from a very silly person.

Dance to the music of your soul. Within you is an orchestra. You are the conductor and the principal performer. When all is in balance, my, what fine symphonies you perform!

As the conductor, you are empowered to keep your inner musicians in harmony. If one section begins to blare or go off tune, study the problem -- and you can correct it.

Listen for the laughter of the bored gods. They exist amongst us, the glorious divinities that accompanied us onto the lion-infested plain, out of the warm lands and into the steppes, across the seas and deep into the mountains. Their names and deeds may be forgotten, but their love lives on. In all that we do for and upon the Earth, we should remember those who have gone before -- both deities and humans.

Pour blessings for your ancestors. Pour blessings for those to come. Pour blessings for the deity who saved your ancestress from the lion. She lived, and because of that, you live. Blessed be mother, Mother, and all Great Ancient Mothers.

We need not know their names. Our libations are still pleasing to them.

Thank you to everyone who reads "The Gods Are Bored." It is our pleasure ... trust me ... it is our pleasure to serve you.

Oh, Anne, this post and your words should be part of every ritual! Pour blessings, indeed.

To you and yours, my dear, to you and yours!

Happy Blogoversary! And thanks for the info about the Eyeball Vulture -- I've seen this picture so many times on your blog without knowing anything about it!

Congrats on your blogversary!

You know, I had an idea for a post. Maybe you could interview a bored Olympian god to see what they think about Rick Riordan and the "Percy Jackson and Olympians" books.

It has been my great pleasure to follow your outstanding blog, Anne, and I want to thank you for letting us into the lives of you, the Heir, and the Spare, for MY life has truly been richer having known all of you, at least as well as you have allowed me to.

May you blog untill the Goddess calls all of us home, for life without "The Bored Gods" would indeed be a most boring life!

Oh, by the way, I went back and checked, and sure enough, it seems you and I started blogging about the same time, although no where near as successfully as you. MY how time flew!

You GO, sister!

I've just started blogging, and my blog is a lot less... um, coherent than yours. This post is beautiful, and it speaks to my marrows. It is always such a wonderful lift to find others who seek a less mainstream path, and it shows me that I am not alone in this world. Thank you for your awesome blog! May you live peacefully with the gods among, above, and below!
