  1. This isn’t my system- even though I still follow you- but I love that you have done this. I think things like coming up with inspirational and thematic movie suggestions for your system is why I still follow. It’s genuinely inspiring.

    • Thank you for such kind words. I do hope folks will take these ideas and run with them – for Dionysos and any other Gods. Our traditions should reflect and shape our experiences in the world today, not just be a tepid imitation of what was done in the past.
