Day 29: Any interesting or unusual UPG to share?
**For those unfamiliar with the term UPG, check out the hyperlink to an older blogpost addressing this.**
I would not categorize it as ‘unusual’, but Hermes has been a cheerleader for me in these new magical endeavors. Unlike Hekate who remains silently watching from afar, Hermes likes to stick His nose right down in the work with me. Exploring the mythology has verified some of these ways in which I experienced Hermes, the sly bartering fool. He is showing up everywhere now…in my newsfeeds, on the radio, dreams, connections are just about endless. The things I have found to be more personal, Hermes likes good beer. I also feel the need to create…I am in a constant state of inspiration but coupled with laziness so projects don’t get very far. I feel Him looking at me sternly as I give up on making my own Herm…a square-sculpted statue with the proverbial phallus is not easy as it sounds. I have no Herm. Others in my Hermetikoi found ways to create mini-Herms and I like them all, it’s just not ME. I also created an outdoor cairn with a bunch of round stones I have…including a very phallic shaped-stone. I am not totally satisfied and am continuing my search for an icon I resonate highly with.
