  1. Link broken.

    Bad link, bad! No biscuit!

  2. Wow… how cool is it that my happy poly moment is on the same podcast with Oberon Zell-Ravenheart’s lecture? However since it is, I feel I should probably put out there that though I am a fan of Oberon & Morning Glory, and their family, I am not a mbr of CAW. I honestly didnt even know who they were until a couple years after I had become known as RavenHarte in my Pagan community. Regardless its still cool, and hey I’ll always be able to find my 1st Happy Poly Moment now 😉
