Welcome to my world. 🙂 Twenty years ago, I bought a copy of Scott Cunningham’s Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner. My youthful curiosity quickly turned into a life long path that’s taken different directions and turns along the years. After much consideration, I decided to share some of the information I’ve learned and collected over the years.
The quick version of my story: I was raised Baptist. I felt like I didn’t belong and soon quit attending church. I began a study of different world religions, and soon I discovered Wicca. I never looked back.
Studying Wicca opened doors to other information. As a child, I collected rocks and leaves and bugs and all other manners of nature. I played outside for hours a day and never noticed how hot it was or if mosquitoes were biting. My dad would take us on long walks through the woods and around a big, man-made lake close to where he grew up. Unknown to me, my dad had long ago stirred my love for nature. Wicca expanded that and explained it in ways I never really thought about prior.
As I studied Wicca, I found other paths – paths that spoke to me in other ways. I began my study and practice of Witchcraft. I found information about Paganism and began to realize that while Wicca was mostly my truth, I had other truths that Paganism answered. I became, and still am, a Pagan Witch.
Through this blog, I want to share that view with you. You’re welcome to glean what you can from my ramblings; I profess no expertise, only what I’ve learned. All I ask is that you leave this space as you’ve discovered it:
No rude or derogatory commentary.
