A Favorite Quote:
“I am tired of people saying that poor character is the only reason people do wrong things. Actually, circumstances cause people to act a certain way. It's from those circumstances that a person's attitude is affected followed by weakening of character. Not the reverse. If we had no faults of our own, we should not take so much pleasure in noticing those in others and judging their lives as either black or white, good or bad. We all live our lives in shades of gray.”
Ż Shannon L. Alder

Concerning Witchcraft:
Today my practice is less on the ceremonial then years prior; now it is much more in line with the tactile and visceral aspects of nature.

Both practices I have engaged in have taught me that the mysteries can only be gleaned by personal and direct experience. This alone directs the crafter into the wood, to walk in the company of the like-minded or alone, as is necessary, to be understood.

In one's spiritual journey one must have heart. It is through passion and practice that the varied methods of working between the worlds can be honed to a fine luster.

The Old Religion is not a part-time hobby, or for the fantasy-minded or power hungry; it is a lifestyle and commitment. For some, this is too much of a sacrifice. But sacrifice is sometimes, many times, necessary. Sacrifice makes us stronger.

Through gratitude I see life for the gifts I am given opposed to the losses I have suffered along the way.

My path is of the Old Ways and summed up below.

'The glint of blade lifted to the moon,
a burst of spark and flame,
soothing cool waters,
moonlit, rippled,
dance the mind awake.

I kiss my hand to the Lady times two,
and let the cauldron speak;
read portents in the wing-wake of crows,
translate underworld speech through the waters of a stream,
I run with the deer.

The Wildwood Lord and the Ruby Mouthed Lady await me.

Standing at the entrance to the psyche,
armed with only a hag stone 'round my neck to keep the night-mares at bay
as a seeker I take a breath of cool damp air,
place my hand on the rough rock surface of the earthly womb,
and enter, alone,

I emerge in partnership with a deeper understanding of myself,
where the twylight and the darkness dwell
and the Gods of the wild places whisper me awake...

The life-long journey of the mysteries unfolds,

and as it does I willingly follow.'
