Not from candles or lamps: but the lights arise

from the sleepless eyes!”

Marina Tsvetaeva, “My Poems: The Selected Poetry of Marina Tsvetaeva”

My name is Glory; it’s nice to meet you all. I’m an ex-patriot living in the region of Emilia-Romagna in the country of Italy and as such, my practice reflects this quite a lot: intentional or otherwise! Given to an animistic worldview as I am, it’s become a hobby to actively research Italian folklore and religion from the region as well as in general, though as you may come to see, it varies wildly from place to place. My personal practice deals mostly in ecstatic work and divination, my passions in poetry and art, but all related to the luminaries I hold in such great esteem.

It’s a pleasure to make your (parasocial) acquaintance!
