Digital Ambler does this thing at the start/end of each month, where he lists the most common search terms for people who come to his blog, and explains where on his blog to find that material.

  • tattwa cards — apparently there are a lot of people out there looking for Tattwa Cards, because this has rapidly overtaken the Tree of Life and the Palace of Memory as the most important thing people are looking for when they come to this site. They’re here — a set of Tattwa Cards as a PDF that you can print out on a color printer and then cut out.
  • pony cliffs ashfield Pony Mountain is in Ashfield, MA, near Chapel Brook, which is one of the Massachusetts Reservations. I’ve done work there, and I like climbing there from time to time.
  • how to draw tree of lifeStill a popular favorite.  It’s amazing to me that there are people who go through a magical curriculum and never learn this.  I mean, this is kinda basic, right? Right?
  • tai chi one step at a time — I don’t think it’s possible to learn Tai Chi one step at a time.  I think mostly you learn three or four steps at a time, practice them obsessively, and then maybe pick up a few more steps.  It took me eight or ten weeks to learn the form, and I’ve been at it, off and on, since 1998.  However, you can try following the Tai Chi Poem.
  • memory palace lesson plan — I wrote a great deal about how to introduce a Palace of Memory project to a group of middle school students; the core documents and links to them are assembled here.  I’ve moved away from this in recent years, because the needs of my students and school has changed; but I remain convinced that it has both power and relevance.
  • how to add google calendar wiccan holidays — I put together a Graeco-Roman-Wicca themed Google Calendar a long while ago, which appears to be still-functioning; there are instructions attached to the post.  THere’s also quite a lot of poetry on this website for use with those festal days.
  • St Patrick primary source — I gathered together a good deal of information about St. Patrick, once upon a time, who turned out to be far more interesting than his legends about driving out the snakes would indicate.  I don’t know how many of the links are still active.
  • Mandala compass — I like making Mandalas, and because of my interest in geometry and teaching I frequently use a compass to do so.  Here’s some work that’s relevant to that.
  • Memory palaces for learning music — I don’t have a memory palace for learning music, because I’m not that good at learning music.  However, I think that you should/could arrange it as two separate “halls” with seven radiating corridors for the Circle of Fifths.  I hope this provides the necessary clues to get you started, along with other materials about the Palace of Memory, as indicated above.
