Hungry? Here's some food for thought: "weird"—a word that you have undoubtedly said many times over the course of your life—and "weirdness"—that broad spectrum of felt-sense experiences you have certainly come to know through your own lived experience, are but echoes—echoes in disguise—each carrying within them and hiding within them something much deeper than shown or known—something much stranger than could ever be imagined. Each a distant reverberating emanation from a greater Source and mystery—a distant memory called wyrd.

I first came to know Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, by accident. Several years ago, at a pagan witch charity auction, I bid on a statue of Gaia, the Greek goddess of the earth. Although I couldn't see the statue clearly from my seat, my intuition told me I needed it to further my spiritual practice. I was thrilled to cast the winning bid. When I received the statue, I turned it over in my hands, confused. The lithe figure covered in vines didn't look like Gaia at all (at least, not to me). The feminine figure was seductive and light on her feet compared to the peaceful, heavy energy I associated with Gaia. The statue looked more like Aphrodite. For a moment, I wondered why my ...
