Brenden Myers: Are You Pondering What I'm Pondering?

Brain: Pinky, are you pondering what I'm pondering?

Pinky: Are you pondering cheese sticks?

Meet Brendan Myers:
Pagans who ponder might want to check out Dr. Myers, a Pagan professor and author who blogs at Northwest Passage. His Question of the Week offers the sort of civil, thoughtful forum many Pagans are looking for. (1)

Among his books are The Other Side of Virtue, A Pagan Testament, The Mysteries of Druidry, and Dangerous Religion. (2)

Pinky, my brain hurts:

These links go out to my role playing and gaming friends who live in worlds I wot not of: Only A Game: Deconstructing Flow and Teleological Games.

(1) Bio, Dr. Brendan Myers

Dr. Brendan Myers, Ph.D. is the author of several critically acclaimed books on the subject of ethics and philosophy, environmentalism, Celtic and European mythology, folklore, society and politics, and spirituality. They have been used as inspirational and educational resources by college professors, social activist groups, interfaith groups, Celtic cultural associations, and even humanist societies, in many countries around the world.

Brendan's work has appeared in numerous magazines, podcasts, and radio shows (including America's NPR). He is the 2008 recipient of OBOD's prestigious Mt. Haemus Award for recent research in Druidry.

With a doctorate in philosophy and environmental thought from NUI Galway (in the Republic of Ireland), Brendan has worked as a university lecturer, a government researcher, a musician, a labour union leader, an environmentalist, and as a simple country gardener. He also contributes to teaching at the Cherry Hill Seminary, and other similar organizations.

Brendan is originally from the village of Elora, in rural southern Ontario, Canada, and has traveled extensively in Canada and in Europe. Presently he lives in the city of Hamilton, Ontario, where he is cleverly disguised as a responsible adult.

(2) I was about to offer a review of his latest book, but I understand that Ann Hill is working on one for her blog, Blog o' Gnosis, and knowing Anne, she will do an outstanding job. I look forward to reading her thoughts on this work.
