Hi there, I've been a solitary, eclectic pagan for about 20 years, off & on. I have always felt the draw of the Goddess & have acknowledged Her even when I really wasn't practicing. I'm not Wiccan & I really don't strictly follow a Celtic or Asatru path. I'm not into a lot of New Age hoo-ha that has infiltrated Paganism. I'm currently reading into the 1734 Tradition & Clan of Tubal Cain. I read books on Traditional Witchcraft, the Occult, The Robert Cochrane Letters, Evan John Jones, Doreen Valiente, Robin Artisson, Peter Paddon. I'm on a few Yahoo groups devoted to these topics, as well as others. I tend to stay away Llewellyn books, as I tend to find them on the "Fluffy" side of things. I'm currently learning all about the lost art of Enchantment through gesture & Visceral Magick. I am also a student of Southern & Appalachian Conjure.
Ok, I got another blog award and you know what?? I read what Celia had written on her blog (Secret Dairy of a Mountain Witch) about how these blog awards are like blogging chain letters. I never thought of it until I read her blog...if I'm going to be awarded something, I shouldn't have to follow rules, state 30 things about myself & nominate other blogs. So, after receiving this my 4th blog award, I will no longer follow the rules. If you want to nominate me, that's fine, but I will not be spamming other's comments letting them know I have a blog award for them. Awards should be given on merit & not because you feel the need to follow a stupid rule.Thanks & Blessed Be,)O( Rowan
