Barking up the wrong sacred tree

By Rick Koster

I think we have some pagans living in our part of town. Several, actually – and not all in one big, leafy communal house, either. They’re sprinkled about the neighborhood like elf-dust.

Which is fine.

Pagans on the whole are a fairly interesting if occasionally goofy set of folks – whereas I’m just sour-tempered and my car is ugly and smashed into the backyard fence at a comical angle on a bed of empty beer cans. By comparison, “occasionally goofy” isn’t a bad thing at all. Most of the “goofy” part comes via the names the pagans adopt to replace their given names.

“Chuck” and “Donna” and “Todd,” for example, might well have become, in their new pagan guises, “Stormlight,” “Ravenwidow” and, well, “Todd,” who wanted to change his name to “Celtic Dragon-Lord” but his wife had just given him a box of thank-you cards embossed with “Todd” and so “Celtic Dragon Lord” will have to wait until the cards are used up.
