And my feet. Yes, those are Fox socks. (You can get those, as well, at the Big Red Dot.)

Fox shows up in my art, and he's got plans to show up in some more.
Now, I've never had a patron deity. I've never had anyone (should that be anyOne if I'm talking about gods?) express any kind of interest in me. Honestly, I've always thought all the talk of having deities call to you was more a way to say "I really like Deity X, and I would like to subscribe to their newsletter". But, I think it's time to admit that Fox might be saying Howdy.
Here's where the skeptical side of my head pops in. What, exactly, do I think is going on? Maybe I am just enjoying Fox iconography. Maybe my tastes are evolving to include fuzzy, red fur balls. Maybe there's an element of the traditional Trickster archetype that's speaking to me on a subconscious and spiritual level through the voice or face or whatnot of Fox.
And what does it say if the Trickster element is speaking to me right now? What does it say if cute, cuddly red dog-cousins are roaming my dreams? Who in the world knows... But, I think it's safe to say...
Are you there, Fox? It's me... Fire Lyte.
I'd be interested in hearing about YOUR experiences with attention from an unexpected or unlikely deity. When have you felt a pull towards a specific God, Goddess, Spirit, Pantheon, etc.? How did you recognize that pull? Did the deity's images start popping up everywhere, or was it in dreams? Or, did you come home one day to find the Morrighan in your kitchen making paella?
Love and Lyte,
