Greetings and Good wishes! This space represents an experiment in exploring facets of the Faery (Feri) Tradition, founded by Cora and Victor Anderson. A Boston area resident since 1994, Shimmer was initiated into Faery at the Summer Solstice of 2008. He has been an ardent student of Witchcraft and Paganism since 1998 and had a childhood love of the fey, mystical, mythic arts.
In what is laughingly referred to as “real life,” Shimmer works as a librarian. He is also involved in the Radical Faerie movement, has been a near-lifelong vegetarian, and knows whole stretches of dialogue from such films as Dracula’s Daughter and Dr. Phibes Rises Again. Shimmer enjoys cooking, being in nature, swimming, and exercising an unfashionably dry, arch, pungent faculty of wit in the face of the horrors of postmodern living.
