Well, it is that time of year again. The apples are falling, the woolly-bears crawling, and Dragons and their people are getting together around the world to celebrate WAFDE’s second annual Month of the Dragon.

As the last remaining founder of WAFDE, it falls to me and my ever-growing cadre of fellow dracophiles, to keep the association’s traditions alive, the joy of Dragons spreading out across the known world(s). Note: Dragonic reach is Cosmic!

As an extra-added attraction, it is the Year of the Dragon – Water Dragon to be precise – and her spiky-wiky energy is just gushing through the Universe! It emboldens our actions and enlivens our dreams (even those of us born outside her blessing)!

Currently, our calendar for the month – flexible as the most serpentine of Nagas – looks something like this:

Posts and discussions will be timely, germane, and by turns, full of whimsy and magick! I am also delighted to announce we will be joined by several new guest bloggers this year! The more the merrier!

As an added bonus – as if we needed one! – on November 1, I will be doing a random drawing among all folks who comment during the MotD. The winner receives a signed copy of my new book, Dragons for Beginners (Llewellyn Worldwide, 11/2012).

It being time to go with the draconic flow, I’m also working on a few other surprises along the way. Stay tuned.


Welcome, my Dragon friends and your people. Pull up a chair, pour a suitable libation, and settle in for a rollicking month of all things Dragon, True and lesser. Invite your friends, scaled and not. And join in. The best part of the Month of the Dragon is hearing from everyone who has encountered our friends – how they have been touched, how they have been changed. For who can meet a Dragon and not be profoundly transformed!

Hang onto your hats. It’s going to be a glorious ride!
