Link: Fame

I want the respect of my peers--Quaker or Pagan. I want to be taken seriously--seriously enough to be heard and disagreed with when I'm wrong, or guided deeper into an idea when I'm right. This kind of discernment is something Quakers are at least seeking to give to all members of the Religious Society of Friends, however often we may fail.

Pagans don't even recognize the need, yet.

Fame by Cat Chapin-Bishop is an outstanding read on the desire to be famous in the Neopagan community. It touched on something very Pagan, very human, and is a very good essay.

Link from The Wild Hunt.


The author wrote a followup--The Son of Fame--that is also worth reading.
