Great news! Some of THE best Puma bloggers have joined together and launched a new website/blog. It’s called Widdershins. Their About page tells us:
“Widdershins means to take a course opposite that of the sun, going counterclockwise, left hand-wise, or to circle an object, by always keeping it on the left.
The term “widdershins” was especially common in Lowland Scots, and was known in Scottish Gaelic as tuathal, or “left-hand-wise.” It uses the same root as tuath meaning countryside, originally tribal-land, folk, people.
“Merlin says that one shouldn’t go widdershins around the mistletoe lest one end up in the Fairy realm.”
Ok — I am HOOKED! Perpetually on the left of every question and pointed by the Druid Merlin toward Fairy Land?? Count me IN!
Not to mention that their writers include ardent feminists and all-around ASS-kicking original Pumas like Taggles, LadyBoomerNYC, MadamaB, and GaryChapelHill.
This is GREAT news and I am so pleased to see the phoenix Widdershins rising up.
