Takahiro Iwasaki creates these painstakingly small sculptures out of everyday household objects - from socks and towels to toothbrushes and rolls of duct tape.
A Review of Ari Goelman’s The Path of Names (Arthur A. Levine Books, 2013)

Despite wanting to go to math camp and magic camp, Dahlia is convinced by her parents to attend Jewish camp. It comes complete with everything she would expect – sports, crafts, outdoor activities, friends, Hebrew lessons, and mean girls... and a few things she doesn’t expect – dreams from another person’s memory, sudden knowledge she didn’t possess before, kabbalistic magic, possession, conspiracies, and dead girls.
Well, I have recently been asked to write more on the practical magick I do. Basically I do a lot of little things, so do not expect any
accounts on calling Demons or hunting dragons on some Astral plane (clearly enough I do that every now and then as a recreational task, but not for any real purpose).
Since my third son was born late 2012 I am the one responsible for bringing the two bigger boys to bed. I do enjoy reading to them, so we all have fun. But I really do fall asleep when I need to stay with them until they sleep. Waking up (or not) later makes me feel as if a fright train
is running through my head for the rest of the evening. Anything I wanted to do on an evening like that is cancelled. So I used a little magickal “trick” to improve the situation.
As a couple of my posts show, I am working a lot with fragrances.
I just stumbled across a webpage from around the IOT crowd which specialized in
the olfactory direction of the magickal arts.
