A lot of you have been asking, “Ócháni, what happened to your blog?” Well, life happened. In June I travelled to Chico, California, to visit my best friend Flavia for a four-day weekend, and I never went home. [Except to gather my belongings and give away . . . almost everything I owned!] A cross-country move is a big thing, but I’m used to doing big things. Before driving across country both ways to gather my orishas, clothes, and dogs, I got married. That’s right: July 20, 2016 I was married in a private ceremony with one witness. And, you guessed it, that witness was Flavia. My last name became Acevedo, and things have been insane ever since.
In case you’re wondering, insanity is always a good thing.
During all this I began blogging on Patreon. It’s a patron-supported website where writers, artists, and other creative people create exclusive content for those who support us with monthly pledges. It’s a lot of work, but in return for your support you get quality content on subjects you love.
And as you all know, can’t no one do odu like I do.
For a $25.00 pledge per month, you get exclusive access to content that no one else in the world does. Soon, I’ll be adding vlogs to my blogs, and you guys know that when I’m on cam, I’m a ham.
From time to time I’ll be here on the public blog. I’m updating it slowly with information about classes and events. Mostly it will be a way to communicate with readers about events coming up. But if you want the good stuff, you’ll have to pop over to patreon.com/ochanilele. Make that $25.00 pledge per month. You will get access to awesome writings. This month I’m focusing on the orisha Yemayá and some of her roads.
Become my patron. Support my most spectacular efforts. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
Ócháni Lele [Stuart Acevedo]
PS: Please don’t make me beg!
