Welcome to Myrrhkwood, a blog about magic, stories true and truer, esoteric exploration, space weather, psychedelic hot takes, wild opinions and hasty walk-backs.
My name is Tyler and i will take at least partial responsibility for the things posted here.
I am relatively new to any sort of "organized" magic systems, having only come to realize that magic was something that one could study and do on purpose about three years ago. That said, I have lived in a magical/animist universe for a good majority of my life; never quite giving up the childhood notion that plants, animals and objects had lives and spirits all their own. The exception being the embarrassingly long time that I spent as a drug-addled existentialist desperately trying to numb out and shut the doors that had been blown off their hinges from the moment I read Tom Robbins and Carlos Castaneda as a middle school pot head and finally had something on paper that lined up with the world as I experienced it. But that, dear reader, is another story for another time. This is meant to be an introduction to Myrrhkwood and I’ve already been derailed but you’ve got a taste of my origin story and that’ll do for now.
My intention for Myrrhkwood is to have a space in which I can record my path through the magical landscape of this ever-weirdening world like a trail of Kerouac breadcrumbs, to share things that have helped or hindered me, to review books and tek, to find the others who wander these woods, explore magical experiences and world views, and hopefully create a landing point for a community of weirdos who love this stuff as much as i do.
