Why feriborn (of LiveJournal) Rocks
In response to this meme:
feriborn rocks in a million different ways, but mostly because I just get such pleasure from being with him. Reading his journal is just sort of icing.
I met feriborn about two and a half years ago, before he was "of age" at the first Reclaiming class I ever taught (see River's entry). I was worried when he asked to attend because of his age -- I even wrote up a release of liability, which he had his dad sign so he could attend. One of the first things that stuck me was how serious he was about his spiritual path. He paid for the classes himself, threw himself into the work and had extremely insightful things to say in our discussions. I was completely impressed.
A few months later, feriborn joined my coven for Study Circle. Unfortunately, I didn't get to spend the entire cycle with him because I had to go to St. Louis to wait with Jasmine for her transplant, but I did get to spend enough time to confirm my impression of him from the class. Not only was he insightful, but he wasn't afraid to state a different opinion, something rare and valuable. As we spent more time together, and in the brief visits we've had since, I think what I love most is feriborn's fondness for blurting things that might be shocking to some ears. I love that he pretty much says what's on his mind when it's on his mind -- I really see his black heart.
Watching him grow into a man, even from afar, is a privilege. He's fearless, sometime cryptic (though this may be only because I don't get to see him much) and always thought-provoking. (And did I mention he looks an awful lot like one of my children? It's kind of creepy, actually. )
