"Red Sails Under Red Skies"

By Scott Lynch. This is the sequel to "The Lies of Locke Lamora" and it held up just as well. Locke and Jean go WAY out of their comfort zone when they are compelled to become pirates. The book starts as another "Ocean's Eleven" type of story and then goes full buccaneer. I sat up last night reading the last 200 pages. I hope there's more to come.

I also read Scott Cunningham's "Wicca For The Solitary Practitioner" because I had heard his book recommended so strongly. Wicca isn't my path, but like most people who have tried out more than a few, I know it's not my path because I checked it out. What it is is an excellent resource for people who are investigating alternative religions. Cunningham lays out the basics and you can work with the religious system from there. About 20 years ago, San Diego was a hub for metaphysical exploration. Cunningham worked with Raven Grimassi, who now lives in Boston. Cunningham was tragically a victim of the AIDS epidemic. Now there's a few old Theosophists and that's it.

For me it wasn't a tale that grew in the telling. I just noticed how many biographies included time in San Diego and connected the dots.

I think Wicca and agnosticism can fit together. We know Nature exists and that we're a part of it. View Goddess and God as metaphor, and poof! agnostic Wicca. I've actually seen a couple of people claim this as their religion.

Oh, and Controversial Bookstore is still going strong, in a larger storefront on University.

And right across the street from Lady of the Lake.
