Yes. I've been destracted. I didn't distinguish between good distracted and bad distracted. Truth be told, many times I don't feel like I'm a 'real magician' because I can not astral project. I can do a lot of magick but I can't do that with any regularity. Which means, I am simply seeing through the looking glass darkly. I must learn to do this someday. So, diversions are a distraction. That doesn't mean that my explorations haven't had their effects.
Regarding the font size. If no one else comments, I will change it back.
Lavannah, nice tip on the assistants. I have some of those cued for the Dionysus thing already. As far as the priest comment, no. I'm not a priest. I know people that have gone through the intiations and done the necessary work to earn that title. I have not.
