I’ve added il Bagatino to my website.
Although I recently posted about the new Witch Girls section of my site, it’s actually not a section. It’s really a sub-section of Pasquariello which is where I tend to keep community related things, things about social activities and so forth. Up until today, that major section is where I’ve also been keeping my writing and thoughts about esoterica. I’ve been planning on this for a while now, and today’s the day, as they say.
Il Bagatino is a lesser-known character in commedia, but also happens to have been one name for the tarot card most often called Magician, or Magus. He’s a trickster and a twister. The card is also sometimes called the juggler. Quite apropos. Anyhow, this is the first new major section to my website since I added my blog, I think; so, it’s been a while since there’s been as big a change. (Oh, I sort of forgot about my whole Unbook site … but that’s sort of a separate site … well, okay, okay, so it’s maybe not so rare a thing. But, hey, look! It’s still a shiny new thing.)
I’ve moved a section of stuff from Pasquariello to Il Bagatino that really did deserve its own home. And, along with this new category for my blog, Esoterica (although, it appears the category link is snafu until there’s more than one post in the category because of redirect chaos), I hope to, you know, actually add stuff over time. Generally, I imagine, like other things, that I’ll continue to blather about stuff on my blog using the tag or in email and so on. Then as things start to cohere into something more like an essay or collection of ideas, that is when I’ll add whatever that is to il Bagatino. And, from there, well, let’s just see what happens, yeah?
