Sadly, Circe is unable to post

This post is being written by Kathy Roosa (Katje Broek in Second Life.) I am so sorry to report that Circe (also known on Second Life as Nepherses Amat) is terminally ill. She has been too exhausted to keep up this blog. She says she feels as if she is in a sort of limbo, where she lacks the energy to keep up with writing or even to visit people in person for long. This she finds very frustrating.

Circe deeply wishes to spend her last few weeks comfortably at home with her cat rather than in a medicaid-supported "facility." Circe has no money to pay for professional care, which is required if she is to stay at home Over the last two and a half months wonderful friends and family from around the country have come to spend a week or more with her as she cannot live alone and needs assistance.

If you have been an admirer of her blogs or her Second Life sim, Dark Moon, you can now help Circe through a gofundme page that I have set up. Any donation will help! Money will be used to pay a professional carer who can be there when I cannot; I'll be spending nights and weekends with her. You'll receive an accounting of how your donation was used and updates about Circe, as well as much gratitude from both of us. Please go look at the page:

Entering the Otherworld in Many Ways

In another world, I have created another mythos. In the virtual world of Second Life there lives an avatar named Nepherses Amat. In that world a land called Dark Moon is constantly changing to reflect Neph's current mythic interests. Right now, Dark Moon is in its 12th version. But here I present the 10th Version of Dark Moon, as an introduction and because as we enter the darkest part of the year, we tend to journey inward. I am reminded of James Hillman's "The Dream and the Underworld" as I created this particular Underworld Journey. So enjoy discovering my "secret identity" and the worlds I have created and written about in yet another blog.

This time Dark Moon is a journey from The Underworld, up through the caverns and winding ways to, well, a mystical carnival, which could feel like the Elysian Fields. Follow along with Neph, her Felhound and Guardian as we tour!

Rites of Separation

The Fall Equinox is the portal into individuality and trials as the individual separates from the community, finally accepting the previous Call to Adventure, s/he crosses the threshold to the Otherworld. Here you see that transition between the second and third quadrants of the Healing Circle Model and the skills needed to traverse this passage. And I must say I am really digging this snippet tool and the Facebook embedding feature! Blogging for others professionally has really impeded keeping up with my own blog! So here you go! The passage of the Autumnal Equinox!
