I'm a pagan. It took me quite a while to
figure out, but I'll admit I am.
For me, paganism is mostly intuitive. It's a matter of how I feel about the world around me, and what metaphor makes sense to me to describe my feelings about life, the divine whatever, how and who I am, and how and who I could be.
I'm also a philosopher and a budding scholar, so my outlook on paganism is, admittedly, scholarly as well as intuitive.
The two are often at odds.
I almost entirely duplicated my menu here for a reason. Read on.
The pages I put up on the Pagan Studies portion of this page are essays and papers, thoughts and meditations on paganism, magic, how to do it, and how to be it. I'm still a novice, so I'll be adding more and changing things as I grow and travel down my path.
These pages are my official Pagan Studies pages:
The Obligatory Tarot: The things you don't get told in books or on other sites
Eight Words: The Nature of Good and Evil in Wicca: A paper written for philosophy about what it says. Read the intro. first, please!
Pagan Links: both these and the books have pagan books and links interspersed with the other links.
However, I have many other pages that I think are of interest, for many and various reasons. As much as the previous two pages, they represent who I am as a pagan, and just why I'm a pagan anyway. They aren't, however, about strictly "pagan" subjects as much as they are about life in general, and so I didn't include them in my pagan studies page.
Here they are:
Passing Through: The middle in a series of three meditations on nature while taking long drives
What the Heck is THAT doing here?: Trust me, it belongs here, too
Roses In Her Hair: A vignette about old love, new love, and revelations into life.
Elsewhere: Just a little demonstration about how I feel about life in general.
Just a Little Reminder: Not by me, but it's just what it says it is. As I said earlier, this is a good deal of what I have on this website, anyway! Paganism is just an influence in all of me, even if subtle at times. And that's the way it should be.
